(which Countreys where they this Bank proposes) the Products of such Countrey for Exportation shall come to Balance or Exceed the value of it's Importations; 27 which afterwards will necessitate the bringing in of Moneys, as fast as the want thereof hath carried it away. For, the true ground of the Plenty or Scarcity of Moneys in any Countrey, is not the high or low Value of the Money (as some erroneously conceive) but, that the Value of Goods Imported from other parts hath been greater than of the Export.
