Ken Langone and Bernie Marcus of Home Depot on CNBC

Posted By on April 15, 2009

Interesting conversation this morning on CNBC‘s Squawkbox as Home Depot‘s co-founders Ken Langone and Bernie Marcus offered up their views on politics and business. They both are concerned that wrong moves are being made due to the recession and that government is getting too involved in the running of business.  I’m also concerned that politicians are using pretty heavy hands when it comes to using free market economy tools to advance well run companies, and in turn making our nation the most efficient in the world. As easy as it is to find fault with current company management and their boards, if left to flounder in their own errors, it is a better solution than ‘non-business’ politicians doing the same.
