Interesting quote


Thanks again to Don Boudreaux for sharing another great quote. It comes from Deirdre McCloskey’s 2010 book Bourgeois Dignity (pg 54) (emphasis original):

When the Soviet authorities during the 1940s exhibited the 1940 movie The Grapes of Wrath as evidence of how miserable the poor were in capitalist America, it backfired. What amazed the Soviet audiences was that the Joad family fled starvation by car.
