And yet there is a great deal of money made here

"Engels himself describes a conversation with a ‘middle class gentleman’ about the ‘disgraceful unhealthy slums’ of Manchester and ‘the disgusting condition of that part of the town in which the factory workers lived’. ‘I declared that I had never seen so badly lit a town in my life. He listened patiently and at the corner of the street as we parted company he 

remarked: “And yet there is a great deal of money made here. Good morning, sir.”’
