„The proposition of Mr. Ricardo, which states that a rise in the price of labour lowers the price of a large class of commodities, has undoubtedly a very paradoxical air; but it is, nevertheless, true, and the appearance of paradox would vanish, if it were stated more naturally and correctly.“

—  Thomas Malthus, Book I, Chapter II, On the Nature, Causes, and Measures of Value, Section IV, p. 88

„Which leads us to a conclusion that may at first appear paradoxical, namely, that it is production which opens a demand for products.“

—  Jean-Baptiste Say French economist and businessman 1767 - 1832
Context: A man who applies his labour to the investing of objects with value by the creation of utility of some sort, can not expect such a value to be appreciated and paid for, unless where other men have the means of purchasing it. Now, of what do these means consist? Of other values of other products, likewise the fruits of industry, capital, and land. Which leads us to a conclusion that may at first appear paradoxical, namely, that it is production which opens a demand for products. Chapter XV, p. 133 (See also: Say's Law)
