 Kommentar von Marx. – Marx verweist auf I. Gerstenberg: Suggestions for Forming a Council of Foreign Bondholders. London 1868. Diese Schrift erhielt er von Sigismund Borkheim am 11. November 1868. Für seine Einschätzung der Broschüre siehe auch seine Briefe an Collet Dobson Collet vom 19. und 23. November 1868.
Dieser Kerl von der City geschickt zum Contrahiren des loans. Vgl. auch Isidor Berlinerblau Gerstenberg.

 Zusatz von Marx.
Dieser Eastwick sagt Achsen zuckend von den Creolen von Südamerika:
„Though they have many good qualities, they are averse to physical labour … Their wits are sharp, and they do well for superintendents; but as to work, that tries the sinews … All the haciendas in the country would go to ruin if it were not for the Indians and the mixed breeds.“ The Creols are good for nothing, sagt die Money Market Review »but as superintendents«.  Zusammenfassung von Marx in eigenen Worten.
Hauptwitz des Eastwick wie des Berlinerblau daß die Englische Regierung gegen Venezuela (die Regierung dort hatte den englischen Kapitalisten gewisse Zölle verpachtet) interveniren soll.
He reproduces despatch of Palmerston d.d. 1848, worin der emphatically asserts the rights of the British Gvt. to intervene in such cases. (gegen defaulting Gvts.)  Zusatz von Marx.
Und die Money Market Review sagt:

So long as the „profitable“ undertakings at home are the most profitable, and sufficient to absorb all capital seeking investment, that capital will no doubt be invested in them; but money, like every other commodity, will always seek the best market, and if foreign states are willing to pay higher rates of interest than can be obtained from home investments, it is natural that English capitalists should invest in foreign loans. And if a foreign state, as a state, contracts to pay a British subject, the latter has an undoubted right to the assistance of his Gvt., in enforcing the performance of that contract.|
