This is the revised version:

"Someone once said that there was no doubt that we would colonize the Moon and Mars. The only question was what language would be spoken: the language of science or the language of business. My money is on business. The language of business is universal, ignores national borders, and is capable of speaking all human languages."

You can go to RocketForge to see the original quote, and his reasoning behind thinking that the original is not necessarily true.

Do you know the source of the original quote? I couldn't find it after a couple minutes of casual Googling. I don't think it was Heinlein. Maybe Pournelle?

I really don't know. I think I'd bet Pournelle over Heinlein.
