Examples from texts

If trade is brisk all energies are strained to their utmost, overtime is worked, and then the limit to production is given by want of power rather than by want of will to go further or faster.
Когда конъюнктура высока, вся энергия направляется на то, чтобы извлечь из них максимум возможного, вводятся сверхурочные работы, предел производства устанавливается не отсутствием желания производить все больше или быстрее, а нехваткой мощностей.
