[Anthony Trollope]

Political Economy, Commerce, Natural Law

    In a heated exchange with his business partners, George Robinson asserts that the commercial value of advertising is one of the 'facts as to which the world has ceased to dispute'. If it is denied, he declares, 'You may as well tell me that the needle does not point to the pole, that the planets have not their appointed courses, that the swelling river does not run to the sea'.
