They must be regulated, regimented and controlled - for their own good. — Thomas DiLorenzo

Rather, their main concern is increasing the coffers of union treasuries by driving non-union competitors from the market. — Thomas DiLorenzo

Capitalism improves the quality of life for the working class not just because it leads to improved wages but also because it produces new, better, and cheaper goods ... Indeed, with capitalism, the emphasis shifted to producing goods as cheaply as possible for the masses
the working class
whereas artisans had previously produced their goods and wares mostly for the aristocracy. Under capitalism every business wants to cater to the masses, for that is where the money is. — Thomas DiLorenzo
