It is unfortunate that popular culture has propagatedthe Marxist myth that one person gains in business at the expense ofanother, that capitalism is evil because it is a zero-sum game—somebodywins while someone else loses.

Where we have had economicsuccesses in this nation's history, it has been those times when peoplehave done something outside of the government's involvement. Everytime the federal government has been involved, it has created chaos,waste, and corruption."
