U.K.’s Cameron Says He’s ‘Sick of Anti-Business Snobbery’

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron urged corporate leaders to defend business and the free markets from “dangerous rhetoric,” less than a month after his government stripped banker Fred Goodwin of his knighthood.

In a speech in London to charity Business In The Community, Cameron criticized the idea “that wealth creation is somehow anti-social,” arguing that “business is not just about making money, as vital as that is; it’s also the most powerful force for social progress the world has ever known.”
