Whole Foods CEO John Mackey Makes Case for Capitalism
Of particular interest – John Mackey discusses Marxism’s dishonesty and how intellectuals have continued to (purposely?) ignore Adam Smith’s first work, “The Theory of Moral Sentiments,” which explains capitalism’s moral foundation.
“You have to understand the narrative that people have about business and capitalism is that they are fundamentally selfish, greedy, and exploitative,” Says Whole Foods CEO John Mackey. “Of course, I don’t agree with that narrative.”
“There is nothing wrong with making money, but that’s not particularly inspiring. Every other profession in the world, from doctors, teachers, engineers, architects, [and] lawyers, if you ask what their purpose is, it refers back to some type of contribution they are making to other people.”
