One of the great strengths of the free enterprise
system is its ability to create the conditions under which
entrepreneurship and managerial leadership thrive. Our laureates

a willingness to make unpopular decisions when
necessary, a concern for the customer and a concern for employees. Moreover,
they demonstrate that capitalism is consistent with a high standard of ethics.
