Strange sentences

Keynes : "It is better that a man should tyrannise over his bank balance than over his fellow-citizens; and whilst the former is sometimes denounced as being but a means to the latter, sometimes at least it is an alternative." I thought that they go together from my observations of village landlords. The quote via Brad DeLong Jm Keynes:Concluding notes on the general philosophy towards which the general theory might lead.
Dietz Vollrath:"My mental null hypothesis here is that higher agricultural productivity, because of low income elasticities for food, means more industrialization/urbanization/non-ag production." This does not jell with my experience of Guntur, Krishna districts. The excess seems to have gone to Madras first and then Hyderabad. From Do agricultural conditions matter for institutions?
