I'm away from my books and hand-written scribble that passes for my notes
is confusing even to me...
I've got _The Grundrisse_, CW28, pp. 154-155 (I don't know what the cite
would be for the Nicolaus translation but I can look it up in my office
on Monday if still needed).
the sentence immediately preceeding one above is:
'Money is therefore not only the object but at the same time the source
of the quest for enrichment.'
and I have another note that reads similarly:
'Money is not just an object of the passion for enrichment, it is "the"
object.' -- from _Critique of Political Economy_, Int'l Pub, 1970, p.132
(I'll check it on Monday as well for accuracy and for what precedes and
follows it) Michael Hoover
