“The central aim of every business is to produce more and better goods (or more and better services) to more people at a lower cost.” -J. Paul Getty

“Focusing on the producer means focusing on high employment.  But high employment is not the foundation of prosperity…  We could draft every unemployed American into ditch-digging squads tomorrow.  We’d have 100% employment.  But digging and refilling holes doesn’t produce anything…  Increasing productivity—getting more output for every input—is the font of genuine wealth creation.  Not employment for employment’s sake.” -J. Reeves

“You become prosperous by producing more than you consume, and by saving the difference.” –Doug Casey
