Sound familiar, Mr Brown?

It is said that nothing is new. Just history repeating itself. Does this quote have a familiar ring?

It has been very judiciously observed that a commercial country has more to dread from the golden baits of avarice, the airy hopes of projectors and the wild enthusiastic dreams of speculators than from any external dangers.

John Millar, An authentic Account of the South Sea Scheme 1845
