Wattenberg argues in the program that big business may be initiated by the profit motive, but it provides what the people want. It is opined that corporations sell more, for more profit, but as a result one gets quality and choice. Moreover, in some cases, corporate bureaucracy inhibits flexibility, innovation and even responsibility. It is viewed that Wattenberg's effort in the program has a certain intellectual nobility.
