Quote of the Day: Mamet on Inequality

We cannot live without trade. A society can neither advance nor improve without excess of disposable income. This excess can only be amassed through the production of goods and services necessary or attractive to the mass. A financial system which allows this leads to inequality; one that does not leads to mass starvation.
David Mamet, from his new book
'The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture'
