Middle-Man - 1400 A.D.

Today's Maurin

Around 1400 A.D. appears the middle-man.

He offers to buy the goods and to find a market.

The guild’s man thinks about the money offered for his goods and forgets the Common Good.

And the middle-man is not interested in selling useful goods but in making money on any kind of goods.

And the consumer never meets the producer and the producer ceases to think in terms of service and begins to think in terms of profits.
