THE MAN BEHIND "FREE MARKET" IDEOLOGY


From GreenTech Media:

Why don't CEOs of major corporations think about things like sustainability or take creative approaches to reducing waste and energy?

"My answer is two words: Milton Friedman," said Ray Anderson, founder and chairman of Interface Global, a billion dollar-plus carpet manufacturer, during the question and answer session at the Sustainable Industries Economic Forum in San Francisco today. "He said business exists to make a profit, but that is so upside down. There must be a higher purpose."

Friedman was backwards is his thinking and I am glad that people like him are dying off and their ideas along with them. This man believed in "FREE MARKET WITH NO REGULATION" of any kind and that is one of many factors including taxpayer robbery, massive job losses, and wealth inequality that led to the economic collapse we are dealing with in the United States but around the world.
May he and his followers burn in hell for the damage inflicted on our fragile economy.
