Quotation of the Day…

…from page 119 of David Mamet’s 2011 book, The Secret Knowledge:

A motion picture studio and its bosses may be as greedy as they like, but they can only gain through the public’s desire to buy tickets.  Are the producers and the studio and network heads greedy?  Perhaps; consumed and devoured by covetousness, perhaps; but they only grow rich through bringing pleasure to the audience.  And this holds true of every other good and service.  In the Free Market the individual can prosper only through providing for the desires of others.
