Goods Quotes

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Goods Quotes from famous authors such as Will Rogers, Pierre Omidyar, Douglas Rushkoff, Jesse Palmer, Dara Khosrowshahi. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

A holding company is a thing where you hand an accomplice the goods while the policeman searches you.
Will Rogers
I had always been interested in markets – specifically, the theory that in financial markets, goods will trade at a fair value only when everyone has access to the same information.
Pierre Omidyar
Jobs, as such, are a relatively new concept. People may have always worked, but until the advent of the corporation in the early Renaissance, most people just worked for themselves. They made shoes, plucked chickens, or created value in some way for other people, who then traded or paid for those goods and services.
Douglas Rushkoff
I actually don’t bake too often, but I love eating baked goods!
Jesse Palmer
My family owned a bunch of pharmaceutical manufacturing plants and other consumer-goods manufacturing plants. We would license Western goods and manufacture them in Iran and distribute them throughout the Middle East.
Dara Khosrowshahi
Demand is best measured in terms of spending. You know, I think in traditional economics, it’s a mistake to measure it in terms of the quantity of goods.
Ray Dalio
And just remember, every dollar we spend on outsourcing is spent on U.S. goods or invested back in the U.S. market. That’s accounting.
Arthur Laffer
Play, as a consumers’ good, is subject to the law of marginal utility, as are all goods, and the time spent in play will be balanced against the utility to be derived from other obtainable goods.
Murray Rothbard
Etsy is fundamentally a creative community. On eBay, or Amazon for that matter, practically anyone can sell practically anything. On Etsy, you can only sell handmade goods, vintage goods over 20 years old, and craft supplies for making.
Caterina Fake
We can be inspired by and renew our ancient culture of sustainable design and living. Why not set standards for producers and importers of all goods and services sold in India?
Rohini Nilekani
Wherever you go in Europe, you’ll find each country has particular flavours in their baked goods. It is one of the big differences between Europe and the United States.
Paul Hollywood
Child labour may be distasteful to westerners, but does boycotting goods made with child labour improve or exacerbate the lot of third world children? Trusting the market to regulate may not ultimately be in our interest.
Noreena Hertz
It is the potential for economic growth that provides the basis for the development of countries, for bringing to people essential goods and services, such as water to drink and facilities for healthcare.
Lee R. Raymond
Millions of Americans and businesses rely on the Postal Service to deliver our medicine, ballots, and retail goods – securely and on time. The Postal Service deserves our full support.
Alex Padilla

William M. Daley
In this 21st century world, some of our country’s most significant exports and imports extend beyond goods and services: They also include innovation, knowledge, discovery, and healing.
Kathleen Sebelius
We have a huge family history with Singapore because we have the duty-free shops in the airports. It’s a very industrious city. It’s beautiful, and Singaporeans have this wonderful desire for, and love of, luxury goods. You can see how well thought out and planned the city is with the best boutiques.
Marie-Chantal Claire
The Cross Border Xpress and improvements to the San Ysidro Port of Entry are making the flow of goods and services faster, easier and more efficient than ever.
Kevin Faulconer
It is troubling that modern slavery is a crime that can be hidden in the supply chains of the goods and services we use every day. The uncomfortable reality is that the money we spend could be driving demand for slavery across the globe.
Amber Rudd
When the government takes more money out of the pockets of middle class Americans, entrepreneurs, and businesses, it lessens the available cash flow for people to spend on goods and services, less money to start businesses, and less money for businesses to expand – i.e. creating new jobs and hiring people.
Fabrizio Moreira
Conspicuous consumption of valuable goods is a means of reputability to the gentleman of leisure.
Thorstein Veblen
Doris Day started performing at a young age, had a tough road to success, and once she achieved it delivered the goods 100 percent and brilliantly, always making difficult work look as easy as breathing.
Robert Osborne
There are goods so opposed that we cannot seize both, but, by too much prudence, may pass between them at too great a distance to reach either.
Samuel Johnson
Life on the planet is being homogenized by the expanding human population and the frequent and rapid movement of people and goods, which carry invasive organisms with them. These invasives often flourish in their new ecosystems because, like the woolly adelgid, they have escaped their predators.
Richard Preston
For all the social changes in China can be traced to their early beginnings in the days when the new tools or vehicles of commerce and locomotion first brought the Chinese people into unavoidable contact with the strange ways and novel goods of the Western peoples.
Hu Shih
My problem in calling for pressures on South Africa is to convince the youth to convince their governments and people that it is not the South African goods that are cheap, but the forced labor of the Africans.
Oliver Tambo
It’s craziness to see yourself as damaged goods, so I was the goofy kid who’d stop a strange adult and say, ‘Do you know how to get to Palm Avenue?’ They’d say no, and I’d say, ‘You go two blocks and turn right. You can’t miss it.’
James L. Brooks
U.K. aid spending in India is that it ensures that we are able to work with our partners to develop their markets, business and enterprise, to boost labour standards and rights and, ultimately, to boost the incomes of the poorest which, in the long term, boosts demand for British goods and services.
Barry Gardiner
Any bilateral trade and investment agreement must be comprehensive and address the full range of barriers to U.S. goods and services if it is to receive broad, bipartisan congressional support.
Max Baucus
In my darkest moments, I have not eaten an entire pie, but I have turned to other baked goods to find solace.
David Lowery
Consider one possible future that could occur soon, where autonomous trucks travel highways with a human ‘monitor’ in the cab who can assist with particularly challenging driving like navigating city centres and ensure goods are delivered safely.
Cathy Engelbert
When you play No Limit Hold’em, the ideal strategy is to take minimal risk, do little bluffing, and hope that weaker players call you when you have a strong hand. But that’s the perfect world. Sometimes you’ll face opponents that play very conservatively and will rarely pay you off when you have the goods.
Daniel Negreanu
You are forced to have the best data capture, the best information, when you have goods in hundreds of factories around the world, and the question is: ‘Where is everything?’ And how do you bring it all together?
Philip Green
Young feminists have been sold a bill of goods about American feminism. The enormous changes in women over the past 40 years are constantly and falsely attributed to the organized women’s movement of the late 1960s and ’70s.
Camille Paglia
Bearing in mind most companies rely on the middle classes in developed countries to sell goods and services throughout the value chain, dealing with inequality is a matter of brutal enlightened self-interest. It’s simple economics: Global stability equals global growth equals profits.
Richard Quest
Trade deficits are OK under certain circumstance. 1. An emerging nation imports capital goods necessary to enhance its productivity. 2. A developed nation, with a current account surplus, uses some of its investment income to finance the purchases of additional consumer goods from abroad.
Peter Schiff
Free access to the single market will be granted to a country which accepts the four fundamental freedoms of movement of people, goods, services, and capital.
Angela Merkel
In an age robbed of religious symbols, going to the shops replaces going to the church. We have a free choice, but at a price. We can win experience, but never achieve innocence. Marx knew that the epic activities of the modern world involve not lance and sword but dry goods.
Stephen Bayley
What an economy really wants, after all, is not more investment per se but better investment. It wants capital to flow to companies that will create value – not in the form of a rising stock price but in the form of more goods for less cost, more jobs, and rising wages – by enhancing productivity.
James Surowiecki
The demographics and the psychographics show that there should be, over the longer term, a continued growth in the numbers of customers who will be shopping for luxury goods, both domestically – as well, international tourists come to the United States.
Karen Katz
One of the Internet’s highest-profile companies, Priceline once dreamed of transforming the way consumer goods are bought and sold by offering customers the chance to ‘name your own price’ for a variety of products, including airline tickets.
Alex Berenson
Our institutional framework needs to be bolstered further. We have to implement laws like the proposed Bankruptcy Code and GST (Goods and Services Tax), which will create efficiencies and strongly support the business environment.
Chanda Kochhar
I’d been fired by CBS News in a semipublic way, and as the months went by, there was a perception that I was damaged goods.
Mika Brzezinski
An epitaph is a belated advertisement for a line of goods that has been discontinued.
Irvin S. Cobb
We need to recognise that what really matters isn’t buying more and more consumer goods, but family, friends, and knowing that we are doing something worthwhile with our lives. Helping to reduce the appalling consequences of world poverty should be part of that reassessment.
Peter Singer
The causes of the China Incident were the exclusion and insult of Japan throughout China, the exclusion of Japanese goods, the persecution of Japanese residents in China, and the illegal violation of Japanese rights.
Hideki Tojo
When goods are exchanged between countries, they must be paid for by commodities or gold. They cannot be paid for by the notes, certificates, and checks of the purchaser’s country, since these are of value only in the country of issue.
Carroll Quigley
In the digital realm, companies are free from the friction of producing physical goods, and as a result, we see companies like Google go from zero dollars in revenues to billions at a much faster rate.
Om Malik
This nation is notorious for its ability to make or fake anything cheaply. ‘Made-in-China’ goods now fill homes around the world. But our giant country has a small problem. We can’t manufacture the happiness of our people.
Ai Weiwei
One of the appeals of markets, as a public philosophy, is they seem to spare us the need to engage in public arguments about the meaning of goods. So markets seem to enable us to be non-judgmental about values. But I think that’s a mistake.
Michael Sandel
Biology is greener and, at scale, should be incredibly cost-effective: The cost of goods sold should be little more than the sugar water needed to brew almost anything.
Ryan Bethencourt
While prices of goods continue to rise, American worker’s wages remain stagnant.
Ed Pastor
There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.

Jose Angel Gurria
Nobody is making Americans buy Chinese goods.
P. J. O’Rourke
I am baffled by many Western politicians who continually blame low-cost imported goods for their own economic challenges.
Dinesh Paliwal
I try to eat on the healthier side, but baked goods are hard to resist. I just love sweet things.
Lindsey Vonn
Collectively, we are in thrall to media – because they deliver to us many of the psychic goods we crave, and we know no other way to live.
Todd Gitlin
There is such opacity within the art market. There’s also an abundance of fraud and misrepresented goods, which leads to mistrust between buyers and sellers.
Alexander Gilkes
The guiding principle is not to manufacture the goods everyone needs, rather to earn profits for a few capitalists.
Walter Ulbricht
As more and more people are automated out of the economy through robotics and self-driving cars and other technologies, there will be a way to create value for other human beings online. There will be a virtual economy for exchanging value, goods and services, entertainment experiences, and all that.
Tim Sweeney
Trade isn’t about goods. Trade is about information. Goods sit in the warehouse until information moves them.
C. J. Cherryh
One of the gaps in our international development efforts is the provision of global public goods – that is, goods or conditions we need that no individual or country can secure on their own, such as halting global warming, financial stability and peace and security.
Anna Lindh
Angolans who repatriate overseas funds and invest in the economy, companies that generate goods, services, and jobs won’t be harassed. No questions will be asked about why their money was abroad, and they won’t face legal prosecution.
Joao Lourenco
Be the guy that delivers the goods and consistently promise things that you can deliver. Even if you under-promise, it’s better than over-promising and not delivering, because you don’t get a lot of tries.
Adam Neumann
The problem is that the global arms trade is entirely free of international regulation. In a world in which the flow of consumer goods is governed by a plethora of international conventions and regulations, deadly weapons have an uncanny knack of slipping through the net.
Hilary Benn
You can either invade a country or leave them alone and trade with them. When goods cross borders, armies don’t.
John Stossel
The goods of the world market are available for Cuba to purchase, but all the foreign exchange is monopolized by the regime, which uses it for its own power and pleasure.
Robert Zubrin
No weather forecaster can tell you for sure when to wear a rain slicker, stock up on canned goods, or evacuate a city that’s in a cyclone’s path. All forecasters can offer is their best guess at the atmosphere of the future, whispered by the simulated blue marble and wrapped up in uncertainty.
Hannah Fry
The federal government spends nearly half a trillion dollars on contracted goods and services; therefore, we must ensure that the money is being spent efficiently, and small businesses have proven that they can do quality work cheaper and often faster.
Sam Graves
Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.
For me, Westernization is not about consuming fanciful goods; it’s about a system of free speech, democracy, egalitarianism and respect for the people’s rights and dignity.
Orhan Pamuk
Visit those who are sick, or who are in trouble, especially those whom God has made needy by age, or by other sickness, as the feeble, the blind, and the lame who are in poverty. These you shall relieve with your goods after your power and after their need, for thus biddeth the Gospel.
John Wycliffe
Once the Third World has become a mass market for the goods, products, and processes which are designed by the rich for themselves, the discrepancy between demand for these Western artifacts and the supply will increase indefinitely.
Ivan Illich
We became such darlings of a certain type of media. We became a package; we became easy to sell: these three golden nuggets that could pour out all the goods. It was all exposure in an almost violent way.
Morten Harket
You do not need to be within the single market to be able to export to the European Union, as we see from the wide range of goods on our shelves every day.
Nigel Lawson
Our course, then, is clear; if we desire to put an end to pauperism, or to lessen it, we should import everything we can use or sell, in order that we may employ our unemployed hands, in making the goods by which we pay for these imports.
Joseph Hume
Detroit is really a model for how wealthier and whiter Americans escape the costs of public goods they’d otherwise share with poorer and darker Americans.
Robert Reich
The TPP supports economic growth and job creation in America while expanding access for American goods and services in the Asia-Pacific region.
Charles Boustany
Household spending growth has been particularly solid in 2015, with purchases of new motor vehicles especially strong. Job growth has bolstered household income, and lower energy prices have left consumers with more to spend on other goods and services.
Janet Yellen
By liberating women from household work and helping to abolish professions such as domestic service, the washing machine and other household goods completely revolutionised the structure of society.
Ha-Joon Chang
This is how the Russians have operated for years – they get the goods on people and then they can get you to do what they want. This is how someone like Donald Trump could be turned into a Russian asset.
Richard Painter
It is not from your own goods that you give to the beggar; it is a portion of his own that you are restoring to him. The Earth belongs to all. So you are paying back a debt and think you are making a gift to which you are not bound.
Saint Ambrose
Protectionism has to be avoided. Protectionism is not only on goods but also in the area of services. Financial protectionism is also bad and should be avoided.
Manmohan Singh
We’ve always operated under the belief that you could run a video game business as professionally as you could run a consumer packaged goods business, and you wouldn’t diminish creativity.
Bobby Kotick
In my district, the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles handle approximately 44 percent of all of the goods delivered to American shores, yet they are in constant need of revenue for facilities, improvements and upgrades to roads and bridges and rails.
Dana Rohrabacher
In my home district, exports support more than 100,000 jobs. Imagine how many more jobs we can create by breaking down the barriers that prevent Chicago-made goods and services from entering new markets.
Mike Quigley
What we would like to do is introduce a ‘concierge click and collect’ at House of Fraser. When you go online and say you want to collect goods in-store, you should be able to book a time, book a changing room and book a stylist.
Mike Ashley
The USRTA recognizes that the United States is the largest importer of goods even as it maintains, on average, the lowest combination of tariffs and nontariff barriers of any of its major trading partners.
Matt Gaetz
If China is helping its domestic industries charge an artificially low price for solar panels and other environmental goods, then China is violating international trade rules that it agreed to when it became a member of the World Trade Organization.
Ron Wyden
I personally think intellectual property is an oxymoron. Physical objects have a completely different natural economy than intellectual goods. It’s a tricky thing to try to own something that remains in your possession even after you give it to many others.
John Perry Barlow
Industry is extremely slow in readjusting itself to the manufacture of modern consumer goods.
Yuri Andropov
In China’s big cities, American products – say, for instance, Proctor and Gamble shampoos or many other goods – are widely coveted by a lot of Chinese consumers.
Rebecca MacKinnon
It’s got to be repetition of me over and over again, constantly delivering the goods every time I’m out there. And that’s how I’m going to get to where I need to be, which is in an important match at WrestleMania every year.
Sami Zayn
I was fascinated by the fact that in Osaka, we saw people using their cell phones to pay for small goods.
Richard Quest
Our success marketing goods to consumers outside of our borders has played a big role in allowing Missouri’s agricultural industry to grow and thrive.
Mike Parson
The reason I think we hold films like ‘The Sixth Sense’ and ‘Citizen Kane’ in such high regard is those are movies that were amplified by their twists but were already bringing the goods.
Dan Trachtenberg
He that offereth sacrifice of the goods of the poor is as one that sacrificeth the son in the presence of his father.
Saint Patrick
While other individuals or institutions obtain their income by production of goods and services and by the peaceful and voluntary sale of these goods and services to others, the State obtains its revenue by the use of compulsion; that is, by the use and the threat of the jailhouse and the bayonet.
Murray Rothbard
In ‘The Goods,’ I’m Ed Helms’ dad, and I was known all those years as Kirk Cameron’s father, and now I’m known as Robin Thicke’s father, so I find myself playing myself a lot and, frankly, living up to expectations of what the public’s image of me is.
Alan Thicke
Microeconomics is the study of how specific choices made by businesses, consumers and governments affect the markets for different goods and services. For example, a microeconomist might examine how price changes affect sales of apples relative to oranges.
Alex Berenson
Companies are changing the way they do business, what goods and services they provide and they are constantly reevaluating the type of workforce they employ.
Kay Ivey
A lot of the economy is indeed being supplied by goods that are produced offshore. And much of the reason for that is societal.
Frederick W. Smith
I’ve got a lot of coaching friends in the business, in basketball and in other sports, that really when you talk about choosing jobs, you want to make sure that you have a strong ownership group and the reputation of the DeVos family is as good as it goods.
Frank Vogel
We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories.
Cecil Rhodes
In this post 9-11 world we live in, it is critical we take steps to improve the safety and security of the Trucking Industry which has proven to be our most mobile and flexible mode of transporting goods.
Zach Wamp
I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. I support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs in Europe.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
From life sciences to manufacturing, San Diego’s economy depends on federal policies that encourage the cross-border exchange of goods and ideas.
Kevin Faulconer
Most trade agreements arise from a desire to liberalise trade – making it easier to sell goods and services into one another’s markets. Brexit will not.
Barry Gardiner
I think it has other roots, has to do, in part, with a general anxiety in contemporary life… nuclear bombs, inequality of possibility and chance, inequality of goods allotted to us, a kind of general racist, unjust attitude that is pervasive.
Leonard Baskin
The decadent international but individualistic capitalism in the hands of which we found ourselves after the war is not a success. It is not intelligent. It is not beautiful. It is not just. It is not virtuous. And it doesn’t deliver the goods.
John Maynard Keynes
Markets do not run better when manufacturing shifts to China largely because of the actions of its government. Nor do they become more efficient when Chinese companies are given special privileges in global markets, while American companies must struggle to compete with unfairly traded goods.
Robert Lighthizer
Historically, large-scale global trade has served two functions: 1) the exchange of goods between willing sellers and buyers described in Econ 101 textbooks; 2) as a tool of state aggrandizement, in which the private parties are stand-ins for governmental interests.
Charles C. Mann
The Eurozone allows for the largely unimpeded movement of people, goods, services, and capital across borders. It has also resulted in unprecedented cooperation on crime, security, and finance among its members.
Pete Hoekstra
The tourism industry has considerable potential to be a sustainability role model in its role as a buyer of goods and other services, from building materials and green construction standards to farm produce.
Arancha Gonzalez
Foreign policy is about trying to deliver for them the best possible economic benefits, the chance to travel, to study, to work, the opportunity through trade to be able to sell their goods and services and as much peace and security so they can live and bring their kids up so they don’t have to fear war.
Catherine Ashton
Since World War II, inflation – the apparently inexorable rise in the prices of goods and services – has been the bane of central bankers.
Ben Bernanke
One of the striking features of the form of globalisation that has now been established is that it is based on the premise that goods and even capital should be free to roam but labour must remain imprisoned within the nation state.
Roberto Unger
For a long time, companies ignored the fact that 80 percent of sporting goods are sold to the casual consumer.
Jochen Zeitz
When you put more money in the pockets of working families, they spend it on groceries, gas, school supplies, and other goods and services. And that helps businesses grow and create jobs. So many forward-looking employers, large and small, understand this.
Tom Perez
Rich country protectionism – barriers, subsidies and support – mean that the world supply of agricultural goods is artificially increased and world prices depressed.
Hilary Benn
People are hungry for community. They’re hungry for meaning in a society that is oriented around the production and consumption of consumer goods.
Mitch Kapor
The Communist bloc of old was a study in the failure of failure. Losers in the Soviet economy were the people at the end of the long lines for consumer goods. Worse losers were the people who had spent hours getting to the head of the line, only to be told that the goods were unavailable.
P. J. O’Rourke
Much like Warren Buffett has said very famously – he doesn’t buy technology stocks because he doesn’t understand them- I will not buy consumer goods companies because I do not understand them.
Chamath Palihapitiya
Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.
H. L. Mencken
We can serve our customers well only if our buying jobs are right. You cannot sell if you haven’t ordered wanted goods into your store.
James Cash Penney
For China, the GCC countries have emerged as a major market for Chinese manufactured goods and food exports.
Sanjaya Baru
You can’t do business with a man who doesn’t know the meaning of a contract. You can’t do business with a firm who swears they’ll do one thing one day and does just the opposite the next. You can’t do business with a company who takes your goods on a cash basis and then pays you off in bum harmonicas.
Stephen Vincent Benet
I believe China is a major trade violator. The Chinese break all the rules. They counterfeit our goods, steal our international property rights, and hack the computers of our industries and government. Something must be done about it.
Lawrence Kudlow
We live in a world of virtual goods where none of us own the 0s and 1s. What are you going to do?
Warren Spector
The boom for luxury goods is unending. There are people who never have to worry about whether they can afford something they like. In one part of the world or another there will always be someone with money to spend on luxury.
Diego Della Valle
If across the Atlantic the ideology was pride, here it is delivering the goods.
Theodor W. Adorno
I started manufacturing bicycle parts. I come from a city called Ludhiana where almost everybody is self-employed, and either you make bicycle parts or bicycles, or hosiery parts or hosiery goods.
Sunil Mittal
The Harbor Area is everything – Carson, Wilmington, San Pedro, Long Beach, that whole little bubble that I grew up in. I always throw it up after I finish fighting, I always throw up the Harbor Area. Out of pride. It made me who I am. It brought me my goods; it brought me my bads. It molded me into who I am.
Brian Ortega
To be interested in the public good we must be disinterested, that is, not interested in goods in which our personal selves are wrapped up.
George Herbert Mead
Firms produce goods for households – that’s us – and provide us with incomes, and that’s even better, because we can spend those incomes on more goods and services. That’s called the circular flow of the economy.
Tim Jackson
The basis on which good repute in any highly organized industrial community ultimately rests is pecuniary strength; and the means of showing pecuniary strength, and so of gaining or retaining a good name, are leisure and a conspicuous consumption of goods.
Thorstein Veblen
Advertising as the printed form of selling would seem… ultimately to be justified in so far as it serves as a means of increasing legitimate human wants, as an agency of fair and economic competition in the distribution of goods, and as a stimulant to social progress.
Daniel Starch
In the absence of any short term in common use to represent all desirable things, or things that satisfy human wants, we may use the term Goods for that purpose.
Alfred Marshall
Walmart and other big-boxers could become the center of gravity for the conservation of goods, employ people with actual know-how, and develop deeper, longer term, more profitable relationships with their customers.
Lisa Gansky
One thing that is unique to Stadium Goods is that they have a consolidated view of everything that is going on in the footwear ecosystem because they are connecting with customers, both buyers and sellers of sneakers, in so many different places.
Kirsten Green
It is in the U.S. interest to have a more prosperous neighbor to the south. Because if we cannot export goods, we will keep exporting people. And that’s not what the U.S. wants.
Óscar Arias
Unemployment is due to the large import of goods from Britain and other countries. The Government haven’t used the powers which they have for the benefit of the country.
Eamon de Valera
On reflection, I am always pleasantly surprised when ordinary members of the public stop me in the street to say, ‘Thank you,’ I guess for making travel and other goods and services affordable to them.
Stelios Haji-Ioannou
A little over 5% of the world’s population produces almost 29% of the world’s goods and services.
Stephen Covey
Trade carried by sea has grown fourfold since 1970 and is still growing. In 2011, the 360 commercial ports of the United States took in international goods worth $1.73 trillion, or eighty times the value of all U.S. trade in 1960.
Rose George
There is surely a finite amount of European baked goods, isn’t there?
Mel Giedroyc
It always surprises me when donors who operate successful businesses assume that just building a school structure means that a community now has access to education. When creating a business, does renting an office space now mean that you’re producing goods, training staff and generating revenues?
Adam Braun
I believe many people – especially small- and medium-sized enterprises across the European Union – are disenchanted with Europe because we haven’t delivered the goods.
Frans Timmermans
Years of government inaction on air pollution has got people thinking that the state cannot even protect basic public goods like clean air.
Barry Gardiner
The globalization that has swept away the barriers to the movement of goods, ideas and people has also swept with it barriers that confined and localized security threats.
Mohamed ElBaradei
Advertising is a valuable economic factor because it is the cheapest way of selling goods, particularly if the goods are worthless.
Sinclair Lewis
People imagine that Netflix sprang fully formed into a global streaming giant, but Netflix might have been personalised sporting goods – or customised shampoo – or even pet food, since these were all ideas that I pitched Reed Hastings in those first months.
Marc Randolph
Between two evils, choose neither; between two goods, choose both.
Tryon Edwards
Trump stood up to the failed Biden trade doctrine that filled our shelves with Chinese goods and loaded our ships with American jobs headed overseas.
Mike Braun
Any business that is looking for new customers needs to understand the Internet and how to market their goods or services through it.
Eric Lefkofsky
How do we ensure in the case of public goods that they are provided at all, and that they are provided at the right level, taking into account citizens’ preferences?
Eric Maskin
We didn’t become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn’t come this far by letting the special interests run wild. We didn’t do it just by gambling and chasing paper profits on Wall Street. We built this country by making things, by producing goods we could sell.
Barack Obama
From an early age, my initiative took many forms – teaching myself magic so I could do magic shows, buying wholesale goods and then selling them to other kids, learning many languages.
Daniel Lubetzky
‘Globalization’ has become the great tag phrase, but when we talk about it, it’s nearly always in terms of the global marketplace or communications technology – either data or goods that are whizzing around. We forget that people are whizzing around more and more. On them, it takes a toll.
Pico Iyer
There will be new businesses that will digitally enable the planning and consumption of passenger and goods movement to be more efficient, enjoyable, productive, safer, cleaner, and cheaper. That could mean everything from maintaining vehicle fleets to remote monitoring.
Cathy Engelbert
Developing new products is labour- intensive. So is producing the capital goods needed to make them. These jobs disappear when innovation stalls.
Edmund Phelps
When I first began working in Japan, I had to confront the Japanese people’s excessive worship for foreign goods and the fixed idea of what clothes ought to be. I wanted to change the rigid formula of clothing that the Japanese followed.
Issey Miyake
The market doesn’t work very well when it comes to public goods.
Eric Maskin
After all, an overvalued dollar gives us the ability to buy foreign goods at lower prices. And the existing volume of exports brings more yen and euros than they would if the dollar were more competitive.
Martin Feldstein
The E.U. imports more agricultural goods from developing countries around the world than does the U.S., Canada and Japan, combined.
John Bruton
Unlike Milan, Italy’s banking capital, or Rome, its religious center, Florence was the place where the rich went to buy goods that would showcase how wealthy they were.
Hanya Yanagihara
Although everyone does benefit from lower-priced goods and services, people also care greatly about the chance to be productively employed and the quality of their work. Declining employment opportunities feel real and immediate; the rise in real incomes brought by lower prices does not.
Michael Spence
Amazon is definitely serious about delivering its goods by an autonomous air force.
Steven Levy
Markets work well with goods that economists call private goods.
Eric Maskin
Globalisation, and specifically our connectivity to China, has contributed to a sustained growth in the U.S. economy, has led to full employment and has benefited consumers with lower-cost, high-quality goods.
Neil Bush
Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will benefit about 28 million workers across the country. And it will help businesses, too – raising the wage will put more money in people’s pockets, which they will pump back into the economy by spending it on goods and services in their communities.
Tom Perez
Replacing white flour with whole wheat generally makes baked goods denser, drier, and more crumbly because the germ and bran in whole wheat absorbs more water.
Claire Saffitz
People can yawn all they want when a conservative mentions the tax system. But there is no doubt that when we have a tax system that punishes businesses and workers for producing then it becomes financially advantageous for everyone just to import cheaper goods from abroad.
Pierre Poilievre
Privatization of assets that most of us consider public goods – like airports and highways – has a long, often-uncontroversial history.
Bethany McLean
I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations.
Madam C. J. Walker
So the question is, First, Whether the civil magistrate hath power to force men in things religious to do contrary to their conscience, and if they will not to punish them in their goods, liberties, or lives? this we hold in the negative.
Robert Barclay
Sporting goods sales have suffered because Americans have become too sedentary.
Mike May
When you’re dealing with digital goods, you don’t have to be tied to one URL.
Jason Kilar
Lawsuits – and frivolous lawsuits – are just sapping the life out of the people who perform the services and deliver the goods for the rest of the citizenry in the State of Montana.
Conrad Burns
Even if you live forty or fifty years in this world, and then die, you cannot take all your goods with you.
Red Cloud
Food service workers, home care workers, farm workers, and other low-wage workers log long hours. They come home tired after providing services and producing goods that make our country stronger. They deserve fair treatment from their employers, and they deserve a voice in collective bargaining.
Jan Schakowsky
As the people of Shishmaref lose their natural hunting grounds to the warming sea, they are forced to buy U.S. canned goods from the only local store on the island; however, this is not their natural diet and cannot sustain them throughout the year.
Amy J. Berg
Globalisation means many things. At one level, it talks of trade, which since the 16th century has exchanged goods and now, increasingly, ideas and information across the globe. But globalisation is also a view of the world – it is an opinion about man and why men are on the world.
John Berger
Use and beauty – these should be the ends of all human effort. But the competitive struggle swings us away from this high ground and plunges us into a quagmire fight for cheap goods and cheap labor.
Edwin Markham
I suspect that most retailers are so busy buying goods, taking care of markdowns, and so on that they have too little time to give thought to creativity.
Stanley Marcus
Private sector development and the creation of small businesses spur investment, jobs, opportunity, and hope. It empowers the market to meet local needs, whether for food, basic goods, or services.
Robert Zoellick
People who stay unemployed for a long time start to look like damaged goods, and they don’t get such good offers. Also, they’re not learning anything. Most learning is on-the-job learning.
Robert J. Shiller
Democracy is never a thing done. Democracy is always something that a nation must be doing. What is necessary now is one thing and one thing only that democracy become again democracy in action, not democracy accomplished and piled up in goods and gold.
Archibald MacLeish
It is important to launch a mass and society-wide struggle to drastically increase the production of consumer goods.
Kim Jong-un
I think the world will just be better if AI is helping us. It will reduce the cost of goods, giving us good education, changing the way we run hospitals and the health-care system – there’s just a long list of things.
Andrew Ng
Consumers need more insight into the goods and services they purchase. Businesses need to produce those goods and services more sustainably.
Arancha Gonzalez
I’m suspicious of the idea of architects acting like business executives, brand managers, or purveyors of luxury goods.
David Chipperfield
The Industrial Revolution was about making physical things. Many of the manufactured goods that were once tangible objects have now been reduced to bits and bytes of data.
Jay Samit
People do care where their food, or other goods, comes from, not merely if the price is right. And that means no business can afford to ignore the impacts their buying practices have on producers and on the perceptions and choices of consumers.
Julian Baggini
In peace, the Middle East, the ancient cradle of civilization, will become invigorated and transformed. Throughout its lands there will be freedom of movement of people, of ideas, of goods.
Menachem Begin
More than anything, whether it’s my dad’s fault or whatever, I wouldn’t allow myself to be loved. I lived most of my life thinking that I was unlovable, that I was broken goods, or whatever.
Bart Millard
Sea freight is by far the cheapest, most economical way to move goods.
Soren Skou
It’s not unusual for a luxury company to be born from a single product and then diversify. Louis Vuitton began with luggage, and Gucci with leather goods.
Angela Ahrendts
Freedom comes only to those who no longer ask of life that it shall yield them any of those personal goods that are subject to the mutations of time.
Bertrand Russell
The supply chain is not just the movement of finished goods, but it is also of materials and parts used within the manufacturing process. And so it effects producers and manufacturers and obviously consumers alike.
Raphael Warnock
Americans have learned to trust free markets. Republican or Democrat, we believe the unimpeded exchange of goods and services will yield better solutions than five-year plans set by even the most well-meaning public servants.
John Katzman
It is very wicked for you not to take care of your masters goods, but how much worse is it to pilfer and steal from them, whenever you think you shall not be found out.
Jupiter Hammon
The United States will continue to be number one, and I do not see any country or group of countries taking the United States’ place in providing global public goods that underpin security and prosperity. The United States functions as the world’s de facto government.
Michael Mandelbaum
Human nature says that you want a bargain, whether you want the goods or not. You think that something is a steal, you’ll buy it.
Jason Statham
I would eat fruitcake if there’d been a nuclear war and I’d run out of canned goods.
Deb Caletti
I am a regular, if not exactly enthusiastic, patron of my local bookshop. I try to buy at least some books there because I cling to the belief that it’s important to maintain those businesses which put a human face on the exchange of money for goods and services.
Will Self
The American consumer is also the American worker, and if we don’t do something to protect our manufacturing base here at home, it is going to be hard to buy any retail goods.
Lindsey Graham
1900 was a bit of mixed bag, it seems to me, on the one hand, because this is the year when this country becomes the premiere producer of manufactured goods. Clearly, a lot of people were making a lot of money, but it’s also a time that reflects the savaging of one of the deepest depressions.
David Levering Lewis
We have relied on China for far too long to provide cheap labor and goods at the expense of America and our workers.
Jeff Van Drew
The owner of a company with supertight margins – say, a restaurant, retailer, or producer of commodity goods – would be a fool not to keep a close eye on the numbers. But when I make big decisions, numbers are seldom, if ever, the tiebreaker.
Jason Fried
Kitchen-table start-ups and local entrepreneurs will find they have major new opportunities opened to them, as they gain easier and quicker access for their goods and services into one of the world’s largest markets.
Liz Truss
Policies aimed at reversing globalization will lead only to a decrease in real income as goods become more expensive.
Angus Deaton
We function in a pack mentality. This is our tribe. And this is how we are exploited – sold a bill of goods and a household of products.
Joey Skaggs
The accumulation of skill and science which has been directed to diminish the difficulty of producing manufactured goods, has not been beneficial to that country alone in which it is concentrated; distant kingdoms have participated in its advantages.
Charles Babbage
Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services.
Henry Ford
If we don’t give the authors of music, film, literature, and journalism a way to control the distribution of their goods, the quality of all of these creative efforts will decline.
Glenn Kelman
Lawsuit abuse is a major contributor to the increased costs of healthcare, goods and services to consumers.
Charles W. Pickering
Beyond the U.S. and E.U., Britain should deepen ties with the Commonwealth and the rising powers of Asia and Latin America – calibrated to our national interest in promoting the global goods of free trade, democracy, and basic human rights.
Dominic Raab
I am vigorously opposed to the Mexican trucks coming into the country. The way we have done it and, I think, the way we should do it in the future, is to have the goods come into the United States from Mexico within a 20-mile commercial space and unloaded from Mexican trucks into U.S. trucks.
