“Well in a free market capitalist system there are always winners and losers. It’s creative destruction. That just happens. It’s unfortunate. But lets face it, if it weren’t for that we’d still have buggy whip companies.”
– Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson, speaking at the WisPolitics Luncheon at the Madison Club on 7/26/10
Personally, I’d love to see Ron Johnson tell someone who lost their job in the current recession about his theory on “creative destruction,” because I’m sure that would be quite an interesting conversation.
