Capitalism Quotes A-Z by Author|
It is a fact that, in the West, we live
in a capitalist society, but that does not
mean that we cannot be guided by the idea
of a social conscience in our work. Yes,
fashion design requires consumers to consume,
but we can do our bit for society by running
our companies in a socially
responsible way, and by creating products
that promote respect for social and environmental
issues. There is also the possibility for
power and influence to be a force for change.
Armani - Design
The 400 of us pay a lower part of our income
in taxes than our receptionists do, or our
cleaning ladies, for that matter. If you're
in the luckiest 1 per cent of humanity,
you owe it to the rest of humanity to think
about the other 99 per cent.
Buffett - Taxes
Class - Capitalism
It's very difficult to be continuously charitable
in a capitalistic society. You've also got
to make sure that you can pay everyone who
works for you.
Dennis - Difficult
The corporation is the “master”, the
employee is the “servant”. Because the corporation
owns the means of production without which
the employee could not make a living, the
employee needs the corporation more than
Capitalism is this wonderful thing that
motivates people, it causes wonderful inventions
to be done. But in this area of disease
of the world at large, it's really let us
Gates - Capitalism
The Internet will help achieve "friction
free capitalism" by putting buyer and
seller in direct contact and providing more
information to both about each other.
Gates - Internet
Communism forgets that life is individual.
Capitalism forgets that life is social,
and the kingdom of brotherhood is found
neither in the thesis of communism nor the
antithesis of capitalism but in a higher
synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis
that combines the truths of both. Now, when
I say question the whole society, it means
ultimately coming to see that the problem
of racism, the problem of exploitation,
and the problem of war are all tied together.
These are the triple evils that are interrelated.
Luther King Jr - Truth
Between capitalist and communist society
there lies the period of the revolutionary
transformation of the one into the other.
Corresponding to this is also a political
transition period in which the state can
be nothing but the revolutionary dictatorship
of the proletariat.
Marx - Social
Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist
revolution. The proletarians have nothing
to lose but their chains. They have a world
to win. Working men of all countries, unite!
Marx - Oppression
Class - Lose
One of the most ironic things about capitalism
is that the capitalist will sell you the
rope to hang himself with. Actually they
will give you the money to make a movie
that makes them look bad, if they believe
they can make money off it.
Moore - Capitalism
For all of its faults (capitalism), it gives
most hardworking people a chance to improve
themselves economically, even as the deck
is stacked in favor of the privileged few.
Here are the choices most of us face in
such a system: Get bitter or get busy.
O'Reilly - Rich
Capitalism should not be condemned, since
we havent had capitalism. A system
of capitalism presumes sound money, not
fiat money manipulated by a central bank.
Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts
and interest rates that are determined by
savings, not credit creation by a central
bank. Its not capitalism when the
system is plagued with incomprehensible
rules regarding mergers, acquisitions, and
stock sales, along with wage controls, price
controls, protectionism, corporate subsidies,
international management of trade, complex
and punishing corporate taxes, privileged
government contracts to the military-industrial
complex, and a foreign policy controlled
by corporate interests and overseas investments.
Add to this centralized federal mismanagement
of farming, education, medicine, insurance,
banking and welfare. This is not capitalism!
Paul - Federal
Reserve - Government
Industrial Complex - Economy
Policy - Capitalism
Money - Interest
Rates - Protectionism
A weak currency is the sign of a weak economy,
and a weak economy leads to a weak nation.
Perot - Capitalism
Globalization has gone wrong, as it has
no rules. Multinationals are almost above
the law. They are so huge they are bigger
Smith - Capitalism
If we are not careful, capitalism will self-destruct.
We will destroy it as the companies have
no conscience and do not really compete.
They are so big they can't go broke, so
they simply acquire everything.
Smith - Capitalism
Marx was right when he said capitalism would
destroy itself as capitalist would eat capitalist
until they became so big they could not
Smith - Capitalism
Poverty has been created by the economic and social system that we have designed
for the world. It is the institutions that we have built and feel so proud of,
which created poverty them.
Yunus - Poverty
