Repairing the economy

Obama will lead us away from greed

Greed is the quicksand that turned a once-responsible economic culture into an irresponsible one [“President Obama: big-spending conservative,” Opinion, David Brooks column, April 21].

Insidious, contagious greed is destroying America morally and spiritually. It has seriously soiled the sacred marketplace values we cherish so. As individuals and as a nation, we are in great danger of losing our souls.

For the economy to be restored to a firm, solid-rock foundation, we as a society must renounce addictive greed. President Obama is the right person to lead our country out of these hard economic times. Despite the dissenting cries of many conservatives, more government oversight and regulation is required.

— Paul L. Whiteley Sr., Louisville, Ky.
