Fred Smith, on How to Turn This Around

Fed Ex CEO Fred Smith, in an interview with Stephen Moore, argues for a return to basic value-add entrepreneurship as the antidote to our Wall Street driven financial crisis.

He has come to hold the get-rich-quick Wall Street financiers in more than a little disdain. He views the heroes of the U.S. economy as the companies that actually produce real goods and services. He sees the Wall Street collapse as an inevitable byproduct of investment bankers building multitrillion dollar debt pyramid structures.

So how do we fix this problem and retool our industrial sector in a pro-competitive fashion? “We’ve got to reduce the taxes on equity. Let companies expense their capital purchases.”
