Milton Friedman – Greed

Posted by Jason | Posted in Economics, Video | Posted on 07-11-2009


If you read my first post you know capitalism and the free market have nothing to do with greed. Greed is a derogatory term used to undermine self interest. Everyone pursues their own self interest, even the bleeding heart liberal who shouts compassion from the roof tops. True compassion comes from the person who earns and then voluntarily gives up part of their earnings to help another. Compassion is not sacrificing your fellow man for your belief in your own, false altruism. Milton doesn’t argue the word greed, but he pretty much shuts Phil Donahue down.
