The repetitive use of pronouns reflect the emphasis capitalist systems puts on individuality, and mr Birling reflects this, you could contrast this quote with the Inspectors repetitive use of we or us from a socialist perspective perhaps.

You could also zone in on the fact he said ‘a man’ it’s a third person singular pronoun which again highlights the individuality of a capitalist society, everyone is for themselves. He is distancing himself from the many working class people struggling, there is no we or togetherness just one singular upper class person for himself. It also highlights the gender roles and how women were reliant on their husbands which you could link back to the submissiveness of Shelia and her naivety shown throughout the play
