jkgalbraith.jpgThe man who is admired for the ingenuity of his larceny is almost always rediscovering some earlier form of fraud. The basic forms are all known, have all been practiced. The manners of capitalism improve. The morals may not.

People need to think of themselves as unmanaged, independent and free, if they are to be controlled with maximum success.

The greater the wealth, the thicker will be the dirt.
