VALLEY PERSPECTIVE

Entrepreneurs

April 08, 2001

Craig Lennon Kysar asserts that history and current events show a "free market economy do not lead to people getting what they need, but instead lead to rich people getting what they want" (Letters to the Valley Edition, April 1). If Kysar's assertion is correct then how is it that American entrepreneurs, starting with Henry Ford, have been so successful in being able to mass produce expensive items such as cars, refrigerators, television sets, computers and so on, at prices most Americans can afford? American capitalism has been enormously successful in satisfying the needs and wants of the vast majority of persons living in this country.
