Sper ca subiectul pe care vi-l propun sa fie cat se poate de interesant!

Azi – Milton Friedman!!

Iata ce a declarat odata marele economist american – citez din Wikiquote :

„Whether it is in the slums of New Delhi or in the affluence of Las Vegas, it simply isn’t fair that there should be any losers. Life is unfair — there is nothing fair about one man being born blind and another man being born with sight. There is nothing fair about one man being born of a wealthy parent and one of an indigenous parent. There is nothing fair about Muhammad Ali having been born with a skill that enables him to make millions of dollars one night. There is nothing fair about Marlene Dietrich having great legs that we all want to watch. There is nothing fair about any of that. But on the other hand, don’t you think a lot of people who like to look at Marlene Dietrich’s legs benefited from nature’s unfairness in producing a Marlene Dietrich. What kind of a world would it be if everybody was an absolute identical duplicate of anybody else. You might as well destroy the whole world and just keep one specimen left for a museum. In the same way, it’s unfair that Muhammad Ali should be a great fighter and should be able to earn millions. But would it not be even more unfair to the people who like to watch him if you said that in the pursuit of some abstract idea of equality we’re not going to let Muhammad Ali get more for one nights fight than the lowest man on the totem pole can get for a days unskilled work on the docks. You can do that but the result of that would be to deny people the opportunity to watch Muhammad Ali. I doubt very much he would be willing to subject himself to the kind of fights he’s gone through if he were to get the pay of an unskilled docker.”

Incerc sa traduc:

Milton Friedman

„Daca este vorba de un cartier marginas din New Delhi sau de opulenta Las Vegasului, pur si simplu nu e drept sa existe cineva care sa piarda (sa fie pagubas). Viata e nedreapta – nu este nimic drept in faptul ca un om s-a nascut orb si altul s-a nascut cu vedere. Nu e nimic drept in faptul ca un om e nascut din parinti bogati si alt om e nascut din parinti indigeni (bastinasi). Nu e nimic drept in faptul ca Muhammad Ali s-a nascut cu indemanarea de a castiga milioane de dolari intr-o singura noapte. Nu e nimic drept in faptul ca Marlene Dietrich are picioare superbe pe care dorim cu totii sa le privim. Nu e nimic drept in toate acestea. Dar pe de alta parte, nu credeti ca o sumedenie de oameni carora le place sa se uite la picioarele Marlenei Dietrich beneficiaza de injustetea naturii care a produs o Marlene Dietrich? Ce fel de lume ar fi aceea in care fiecare ar fi duplicatul identic al celuilalt? Ai avea puterea, la fel de bine, sa distrugi intreaga lume si sa pastrezi un singur specimen ramas, pentru muzeu. In acelasi fel este nedrept ca Muhammad Ali sa fie un mare luptator si sa fie capabil sa castige milioane. Dar nu ar fi si mai nedrept pentru oamenii carora le place sa-l priveasca daca ai spune, mergand pe firul unei idei abstracte de egalitate, sa nu-l lasam pe Muhammad Ali sa castige pe noapte mai mult decat castiga omul cel mai de jos pentru zile de munca necalificata in docuri? Ai putea face acest lucru, dar rezultatul ar fi ca ai refuza oamenilor ocazia de a-l urmari pe Muhammad Ali. Ma indoiesc foarte tare ca el ar mai dori sa practice genul de lupte pe care-l practica daca ar fi platit ca un docher necalificat.”
