“Consumption is a poor candidate for salvation.”
“The only thing that makes social or economic trends inevitable is the belief that they are”
“If anything has a moral dimension, economics does.”
“Unlike the battlefield, the market is an arena in which both sides can win.”
“Markets depend on virtues not produced by the market, just as states depend on virtues not created by the state.”
“Man was not made for the service of economies; economies were made to serve mankind; and men and women were made - so I believe - to serve one another, not just themselves. We may not survive while others drown; we may not feast while others starve; we are not free when others are in servitude; we are not well when billions languish in disease and premature death.”
