Direct Opposition?

Joe, It appears to me that:

THE SPOONER–TUCKER DOCTRINE: AN ECONOMIST’S VIEW
________________________________________________
Actually, in contrast to collectivist anarchists and to many other types of radicals, Spooner and Tucker tried to use economics rather than scorn it as excessively rational. Some of their fallacies (for example, the “law of cost,” the labor theory of value) were embedded in much of classical economics; and it was their adoption of the labor theory of value that convinced them that rent, interest, and profit were payments exploitatively extracted from the worker.

CHAPTER II.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEM.

“16. ...Fifthly, men of wealth would retire, earlier than now, from active busi¬ness, and make way for, and loan their capital to, younger men; because they could certainly loan their capital more safely than now, and probably more advantageously. By loaning their capital first on mortgage, and thus getting one income from it; and then converting the mortgages into bank capital, and thus getting another income from it, they would probably do better with their capital, than to remain in business. At any rate, the management of their capital would thus be attended with less anxiety and risk, than if they were to remain in business them­selves.”

Does it appear that way to you?

It seems to me that Spooner speaks favorably toward interest and profit and early retirement for "men of wealth" as provided for in his A New System of Paper Currency
