“There is no such thing as society.”

Posted in economics by ittecon on September 18, 2013

And, you know, there is no such thing as business. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no business can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour.

Recasting Margaret Thatcher’s Speech to Conservative Party Conference where she proclaims, “there is no such thing as society,” 9 October 1987, replacing “society” and “government” with “business.”

25+ years on, on it just struck me. Of course, there is society; there is government; and there is business. Look after your neighbours.
