Distribution, as we have already seen, means the sharing of the products of industry among the factors of production - land, labor, and capital. The shares that go to these factors are respectively, rent, wages, and interest. Usually two other portions are set aside. One is the profits of the enterpriser; the other, the taxes of the government. Thus, in reality, we must account for five shares in distribution; and in doing so we must exercise supreme precaution, for no other phase of our economic life has called forth such bitter controversies or created so much social unrest.
