Ein Kollege sandte mir heute folgende Notiz:
Obama’s official website opens its section on his stands “On economics” with the following quotation:
Plan to Strengthen the Economy
“I believe that America’s free market has been the engine of America’s great progress. It’s created a prosperity that is the envy of the world. It’s led to a standard of living unmatched in history. And it has provided great rewards to the innovators and risk-takers who have made America a beacon for science, and technology, and discovery…We are all in this together. From CEOs to shareholders, from financiers to factory workers, we all have a stake in each other’s success because the more Americans prosper, the more America prospers.”
— Barack Obama, New York, NY, September 17, 2007
………….this at a time when that “free market” has produced the most serious economic downturn since the Great Depression……….
