9053. WEALTH, Overgrown.—

If the
overgrown wealth of an individual be deemed
dangerous to the State, the best corrective is
the law of equal inheritance to all in equal
degree; and the better, as this enforces a law
of nature, while extra-taxation violates it.—
Note in Tracy's Political Economy. Washington ed. vi, 575.
