In this quote, Northrop Frye appears to be drawing a humorous distinction between American and Canadian attitudes towards money. He suggests that while Americans enjoy actively earning and accumulating wealth, Canadians take more pleasure in carefully tracking and auditing financial accounts.

Frye also contends that accountants have greater respect and esteem in Canadian society due to this valuation of fiscal responsibility and oversight.

The best interpretation is that Frye was jokingly commenting on a perceived cultural difference, with Americans viewed as more profit-driven and Canadians seen as more meticulous when it comes to money management and financial record-keeping.
