We discuss the role of the Newton constant in gravity theory. We show that the natural way to deal with the general covariance of the theory is to notice that the action is independent of any dimensional constant. The Newton constant is introduced in gravity through the classical constant solutionγμν=(1/l2)δμν which displays the dilatation breaking of this Poincaré invariant solution. Nothing changes for the usual results of classical gravity since the Newton constant is responsible for the low-energy limit. However, it is easy to realize that there are other solutions of gravity coupled to matter (Yang-Mills and sigma-model) where both fields have the same intensity and the Newton constant does not appear. These «non-Newtonian» solutions are due to the specific nonlinear character of general gravitation. They can be relevant to the hadron structure. The above observations give a hint that the asymptotically small-distance behaviour of the gravity theory is independent of Newton's constant and should reflect the general invariance of the theory, provided that infinite classes of quantum diagrams are summed up.
