“PornHub Does Its Part to Fight Zika Virus"
'As Adam Smith describes with his analogy of the “invisible hand,” corporations may only get ahead by doing good by those it serves. Even if that market participant does not necessarily have the best of intentions, its actions must conform to the calls of the citizenry. If it does not live up to these expectations, it can expect a loss of profit and future earning potential.'

Its PORN HUB author this morning certainly understands the moral Adam Smith in place of the monstrous libel usually imposed on the wholly innocent Adam Smith by ignorant modern so-called scientists who have never read the 18th century moral philosopher yet poniticate as if they have.
