Rockstar Capitalism (Bono quote)
« on: December 07, 2012, 11:09:51 AM »
Bono November, 12th at George Town University, "Rock star preaches capitalism. Shut up! Wow!  Sometimes I hear myself and I just can't believe it. But commerce is real.  That's what you're about here. It's real. Aid is just a stop gap. Commerce, entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty then aid.  Of course we know that."

That's true but you need the infrastructure and resources to create wealth that way.
