John Stossel on the Importance of Greed


The statist left says it's government's job to protect consumers and help poor people. But greed—more precisely, the pursuit of self-interest in the free market—would work better, writes John Stossel. The market (if not corrupted by corporate welfare and bailouts) harmonizes the interests of diverse people who don't even know each other and might not even like each other. It motivates them to work hard to serve customers.
