Benjamin Franklin's Advice of Hard Work and Thrift

Benjamin Franklin's advice to eighteenth century American colonists that hard work and thrift would lead them to wealth was an appropriate formula for the time because:

(A) taxes on income were needed by the government to raise revenues.
(B) land scarcity and a rapidly growing population seriously curtailed economic opportunities.
(C) most people of the period were unusually gullible and thus easily motivated by slogans and proverbs.
(D) formal education and specialized skills were less necessary to economic success than they would later become.
(E) legal restraints on the inheritance of wealth were increasing.
