Rock Star Bono Embraces Capitalism

Rock star and U2’s lead singer, Paul David Hewson popularly known as Bono, who formerly advocated alleviating poverty through government foreign aid. appears to have tergiversated to capitalism.

Mr. Hewson or Bono is more than a celebrity fighting for a social cause, he is both an entrepreneur and a devout Christian.

Watch Bono preach capitalism in a speech at Georgetown University

“Commerce is real. Foreign aid is just a stopgap. Commerce and entrepreneurial capitalism take more people out of poverty than foreign aid, of course we know that. We need Africa to become an economic powerhouse.” (hat tip Mark Perry)

Nice to see celebrities recognize reality.
