Early on in the book, Francisco d'Antonia comments,

“In his lifetime, every one of my ancestors raised the production of d’Anconia Copper by about ten per cent. I intend to raise it by one hundred.”

He later comments after the Strike that, unlike his ancestors, all of the fortune was his - without the interference of the Looters who tried to claim it. Is this quote a veiled reference to that?
