Had state wealth been more readily quantifiable in those days, I think it would have been included. But yes, I agree it was best to base representation on population. There is no telling how long the NE States would have dominated lawmaking.

The financial powers would have created more and more wealth to selected States, creating super States and slave-states.

That’s kind of what Obama is trying to do now.
