‘Dirty Jobs’ star Mike Rowe made predicted that capitalism will get its chance to shine as the Coronavirus crisis continues to unfold during a recent appearance on ‘Fox & Friends.’ As The Washington Examiner reports:
“We’re going to see what capitalism is really all about,” Rowe said Monday on Fox & Friends. “When we have these big conversations about the direction the country is headed and what direction the country ought to be headed … this is a chance, unlike anything I’ve ever seen, for corporate America to step up and do what the government simply can’t do.”
The outbreak of the pandemic has led to a slowed economy with hundreds of thousands missing work. Restaurants, bars, and other nonessential businesses have been shuttered in states across the country.
President Trump has insisted the virtual shutdown of small businesses is only temporary and that the U.S. economy will “pop” back once the virus has passed…
“Obviously, the government has a primary role in this, but I don’t think they can do it alone,” Rowe said. “It’s everybody doing what they can in a way that I think could ultimately make about the most compelling case for capitalism that we’ve seen in our lifetime.”
It’s nice to finally see a patriotic celebrity stand up for the system which America was founded on, instead of trying to tear it down.
