Famous quotes containing the word economic:

    There’s something about Marxism that brings out warts—the only kind of growth this economic system encourages.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    It does not follow, because our difficulties are stupendous, because there are some souls timorous enough to doubt the validity and effectiveness of our ideals and our system, that we must turn to a state controlled or state directed social or economic system in order to cure our troubles.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)

    America is no place for an artist: to be an artist is to be a moral leper, an economic misfit, a social liability. A corn-fed hog enjoys a better life than a creative writer, painter, or musician. To be a rabbit is better still.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
