Luxury goods are the only area in which it is possible to make luxury margins.
Bernard Arnault - Luxury - Products - Profits - Margin

Mass production is only profitable if its rhythm can be maintained.. that is, if it can continue to sell its product in steady or increasing quantity. The result is that while, under the handicraft or small-unit system of production that was typical a century ago, demand created the supply, today supply must actively seek to create its corresponding demand.
Edward Bernays - Manufacturing - Profit - Products - Selling - Demand

When forced to choose, I will not trade even a night’s sleep for the chance of extra profits.
Warren Buffett - Risk - Investing - Profit

Our future rates of gain will fall far short of those achieved in the past. Berkshire's capital base is now simply too large to allow us to earn truly outsized returns. If you believe otherwise, you should consider a career in sales but avoid one in mathematics.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing - Profit - Sales - Mathematics

We lose money on signing up the customers where there's some marketing costs associated with giving them a free month. It doesn't much matter whether you make a little bit or lose a little bit.. as you well know, because you lose a ton on every copy of The Washington Post (newspaper).
Steve Case - Money - Marketing - Customers - Profits

A visionary company doesn't simply balance between idealism and profitability: it seeks to be highly idealistic and highly profitable. A visionary company doesn't simply balance between preserving a tightly held core ideology and stimulating vigorous change and movement; it does both to an extreme.
Jim Collins - Companies - Idealism
- Vision - Profitable - Change

If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Environment
- Business Ethics - Greed - Profits - Companies - Jobs

Many business leaders today view their jobs as entailing responsibility for the welfare of the wider community. These individuals do not define themselves as profit-making machines whose only reason for existing is to satisfy escalating expectation for immediate gain.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Business Ethics
- Leadership - Business - Profits - Jobs - Responsibility

The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.
Milton Friedman - Freedom - Economy - Partnership - Profits

If something is expensive to develop, and somebody's not going to get paid, it won't get developed. So you decide: Do you want software to be written, or not?
Bill Gates - Invention - Technology - Software - Products - Profits

The message from Wal-Mart today to the rest of the business community is there need not be any conflict between the environment and the economy. We will find the way not only to reconcile (those), but to find new profits and new opportunities as we do the right thing.
Al Gore - Environmental
- Economy - Business - Profits - Opportunities

There are many who still do not believe that global warming is a problem at all. And it's no wonder: because they are the targets of a massive and well-organized campaign of disinformation lavishly funded by polluters who are determined to prevent any action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming out of a fear that their profits might be affected if they had to stop dumping so much pollution into the atmosphere.
Al Gore - Environmental
- Profits - Problems - Fear - Determination

I have found no greater satisfaction than achieving success through honest dealing and strict adherence to the view that, for you to gain, those you deal with should gain as well.
Alan Greenspan - Success - Truth - Profits - Partnership

In business, you’re trying to make a buck. God was good to me and blessed me. I made some money and started this foundation years ago, and it has grown in size. With the foundation it’s a lot different, because the bottom line isn’t how you can make more money or get a better return, it’s helping the projects that you feel strongly about move forward.
Lee Iacocca - Business - Money - Philanthropy - God - Profits

Never be frightened to take a profit. Better in your pocket then theirs.
Michael Levy - Fear - Profits

When stocks are attractive, you buy them. Sure, they can go lower. I've bought stocks at $12 that went to $2, but then they later went to $30. You just don't know when you can find the bottom.

Peter Lynch - Stocks - Profits -

For equity markets, the combination of low interest rates, strong economic growth and low inflation has proved very beneficial, with global share markets rising solidly in each of the past three years. This has been underpinned by strong growth in profits so that, notwithstanding the rise in share prices, P/E ratios have been declining on average.
Ian Macfarlane - Growth - Economy - Stock Market - Profits

I do not believe maximizing profits for the investors is the only acceptable justification for all corporate actions. The investors are not the only people who matter. Corporations can exist for purposes other than simply maximizing profits.
John Mackey - Profits - Investing
- Business Ethics

I think one of the most misunderstood things about business in America is that people are either doing things for altruistic reasons or they are greedy and selfish, just after profit. That type of dichotomy portrays a false image of business. It certainly is a false image of Whole Foods. The whole idea is to do both: The animals have to flourish, but in such a way that it'll be cheap enough for the customers to buy it.
John Mackey - Customers - Business
- Business Ethics - American - Greed - Profits

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.
Michael Moore - Capitalism - Greed - Profits - Money

The self-anointed media elite among us believe, somewhat self-servingly, that not only the act, or process of making a profit is positively sinister, but also that the very desire to do so is.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Belief - Profits
- Criticism

The profit motive is not only fundamental to our ability to reward shareholders and pay employees; it's fundamental to excellent journalism. Far from corrupting the craft, profits enhance it. Expansion drives diversity and diversity protects and strengthens our craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Journalism - Media
- Profits - Employee - Stocks - Strength - Diversity

The industry is littered with self-styled purists who believe the business of media.. the requirement to make a profit.. somehow corrupts the craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Business - Media - Belief
- Profits

I have been privileged to grow up retaining the love of good journalism, the craft, while learning its business: the dollars and cents.
I have learnt that they are not mutually exclusive but integrally self-reliant. Each dependent on the other.
Lachlan Murdoch - Journalism - Business - Media
- Profits - Money - Learning

The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.
Ralph Nader - Environmental - Innovation

Our goal is long-term growth in revenue and absolute profit.. so we invest aggressively in future innovation while tightly managing our short-term costs.
Larry Page - Goal - Growth - Long Term Investing - Profits - Innovation - Revenue

War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures.
Ron Paul - Economy - Military Industrial Complex - War - Profits

We are talking about an awesome power. It is the power to weave illusions that appear real as long as they last. That is the very core of the Fed's power.
Of course not everyone is instinctively against this illusion-weaving power, and many even welcome it. Tragically, the innocent who understand little about the complexity of the monetary system suffer the most, while those who are in the know reap great profit whether the market is going up or down.
Ron Paul - Federal Reserve - Economy - Money - Power - Monetary Policy - Profits - Illusion


Of all the things that can have an effect on your future, I believe personal growth is the greatest. We can talk about sales growth, profit growth, asset growth, but all of this probably will not happen without personal growth.
Jim Rohn - Self Help - Growth - Profits - Assets

The future may be made up of many factors but where it truly lies is in the hearts and minds of men. Your dedication should not be confined for your own gain, but unleashes your passion for our beloved country as well as for the integrity and humanity of mankind.
Li Ka Shing - Motivational - Profits - Encouragement

I don’t care about awards and public image. We know the business of entertainment. We worship our work, we worship our clients and we worship profitability.

Participant (Productions) is the only production company in town that has a double bottom line: social good plus financial returns. It's too early to tell how our returns are going to look - though all signs are promising - but social good is what we're really after.
Jeff Skoll - Media - Profits - Companies - Business Ethics - Social - Earnings

This morning, prompted by increasing concerns about terrorism, oil prices reached a record high as the cost of a barrel of crude is a whopping $44.34. Wow, it seems shocking that a product of finite supply gets more expensive the more we use it. Now the terror alert means higher oil prices, which oddly enough means higher profits for oil companies giving them more money to give to politicians whose policies may favor the oil companies such as raising the terror alert level. As Simba once told us: "It's the circle of life."
Jon Stewart - Politicians
- Profits - Products - Companies

The fact of the matter is that today, stuff-selling mega-corporations have a huge influence on our daily lives. And because of the competitive nature of our global economy, these corporations are generally only concerned with one thing.. the bottom line. That is, maximizing profit, regardless of the social or environmental costs.
David Suzuki - Companies - Profits - Products - Business Ethics - Social - Earnings - Influential - Environmental - Consumer

If you buy all the stocks selling at or below two times earnings, you will lose money on half of them because instead of making profits they will actually lose money, but you will only lose a dollar or so a share at most. Then others will be mediocre performers. But the remaining big winners will go up and produce fabulous results and also ensure a good overall result.
John Templeton - Stocks - Profits

The essence of a successful business is really quite simple. It is your ability to offer a product or service that people will pay for at a price sufficiently above your costs, ideally three or four or five times your cost, thereby giving you a profit that enables you to buy and to offer more products and services.
Brian Tracy - Success - Business - Products - Profits


When all is said and done, what must be remembered is a newspaper is a business. It used to be a fabulous business that made extraordinary margins. It's now a very good business with appropriate margins.
Sam Zell - Companies - News - Business - Media - Profits
