    No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem.

  2. Hassan Rouhani:

    Our economy will not prosper as long as it is monopolised (by the government). The economy must be rid of monopoly and see competition, it must be freed of insider speculation, be transparent, all people must be aware of the statistics. If we can bring transparency to our economy, we can fight corruption.

  3. Xavier Becerra:

So it is absolutely the government's business, it is taxpayers' business if we have to continue to spend money to try to keep people from contracting COVID and helping reopen the economy. And so it is our business to try to make sure Americans can prosper, Americans can freely associate.

  4. Ryan Pack:

Elizabeth Warren is right : crony capitalism is alive and well, government and government programs have grown so big, so powerful, so costly and so complex that only the big and the powerful can prosper. But Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is dead wrong about how to end crony capitalism.
