Joyce Carol Oates
Imagine if the pension funds and endowments that own much of the equity in our financial services companies demanded that those companies revisit the way mortgages were marketed to those without adequate skills to understand the products they were being sold.

There are issues that are being questioned that are fundamentally upsetting to me, deeply: immigration, funding for the arts, Planned Parenthood, and women’s rights.

I just don’t like mutual funds. I think they’re a rip-off.

James E. Rogers
Who uses funds more productively – private citizens or the government? I dare say that Warren Buffett can use his surplus funds more effectively in private business and creating jobs than the government can.

As an MP, I could hardly meet my constituents’ genuine needs as the funds at an MP’s disposal are meagre.
Plenty of funds have fine long-term returns despite being tax-inefficient and generally costly. But a dirty secret is this: Average, no-load fund investors do much worse than the funds – or the market.

As more government functions are privatized, we find political leaders defunding the public school system, shifting government funds to the private, for-profit school industry.

What I find very interesting about the mutual funds managers is that here are people who are the new masters of the universe. They’re managing billions, yet they’re subject to this quiet daily tyranny of numbers.
Well, I like regulation as little as anybody else. It can be intrusive. It can be detailed. It can be bureaucratic. It can be unevenly administered. It can be unfair. But most regulations that we have for mutual funds and for banks are regulations that we earned. We did something wrong and we’re paying a price for it.
John C. Bogle
On what can we now place our hopes of solving the many riddles which still exist as to the origin and composition of cosmic rays? It must be emphasized here above all that to attain really decisive progress greater funds must be made available.

My investigations have indicated that Taib and his family have a property empire in Canada, the US and the UK. Funds have been generated by Taib selling off rainforests with some of the money going through the British Virgin Islands.
Clare Rewcastle Brown
We shouldn’t be encouraging people to set up Cayman Island funds.
Whether it’s federal highway funds for the Thruway or Tappan Zee bridge project or the corrupt Cornhusker deal, Senator Gillibrand is willing to sell out our hardworking families. She has failed to address the problem that taxpayers in New York send much more to Washington that we get back.

The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.
What incentive does a university have to control costs when it has a steady supply of students being lent federal funds?

Before the 1970s, banks were banks. They did what banks were supposed to do in a state capitalist economy: they took unused funds from your bank account, for example, and transferred them to some potentially useful purpose like helping a family buy a home or send a kid to college.

In our democracy, political parties have to raise funds to campaign and put their policies to the electorate, and as a proud supporter of the Labour Party, I am happy to be in a position where I can make a contribution to its ongoing work.
David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Turville

James B. Stewart

We all must recognize that homeland security funds should be allocated by threat and no other reason.
I didn’t take theater or anything. We didn’t have a very good theater program. It was in western Utah – was a really small school. It wasn’t developed. We didn’t have the funds to do anything like that, but I did act all through high school in films because Disney Channel would shoot movies out there.
We are going to try and turn Lord’s red for the day as a testament to my wife Ruth, but more importantly as a way of increasing awareness and raising funds for the Ruth Strauss Foundation.

P. J. O’Rourke
When you speak about Real Madrid, you talk about a lot of money – almost infinite funds – something very unique in the world.
One of the big myths about philanthropy is that it’s all about donating funds for a cause. I like to look at it quite differently.

It is time that we take control and find a way to curtail the explosive costs of health care. Small businesses deserve a chance to channel these funds toward other needs, such as expanding and creating more jobs for the economy.
Together, we will protect the sanctity of life, ensuring early next Congress that no federal funds are used for abortion.
Maintaining an employer model of healthcare means handing bosses another weapon they can use against their workers. One more way they can drain union strike funds. One more way that the power dynamic is asymmetric.
