"You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs."
Milton Friedman, when asked about the wealth gap and downside of capitalism. Another eyeopener were these;
"The rich don't influence Congress."
"The one thing you can depend on everybody, is that he's going to put his interest above yours."
"If our society collapses it will be because our government has grown too big."
I saw a documentary once in which it was commented that only 2 kinds of people say, act and do everything you can imagine purely for their own self interest, one was psychopaths and the second were economists. Dr Hare explains.
