In this quote, Ayn Rand is contrasting two different ways that people can interact regarding money and goods or services. She says money should not be used to sell one’s “weakness” or inferior qualities to others by appealing to their irrationality or foolishness. Rather, it should be used to sell one’s genuine talents, skills and value to others by appealing to their reason and rational self-interest.

Similarly, when spending money one should not purchase shoddy or low quality goods simply because they are cheap, but rather use money to acquire the best goods and services available according to one’s means. So Rand viewed money as something that should be used to trade genuine value for value between individuals, not as a way to exploit others or settle for less than what one deserves in exchanges.
