HD’s Bernie Marcus Says Bernie Sanders ‘Enemy of Entrepreneur,’ plus Manufactured Home Stock Updates

CNNmone6.24.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsWhen it comes to affordable housing, as an upcoming Daily Business News on report will reflect here on MHProNews, saving existing housing is often among the most affordable options. That may sound counterintuitive for a manufactured housing trade publisher to say, but facts are facts. In order to grasp the housing market, and affordable housing side of that multiple trillion-dollar U.S. marketplace, one should have a general sense of the big picture. On the 40th anniversary of the founding of home improvement giant Home Depot, right-of-center Fox Business interviewed co-founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone, which will be balanced by a left-of-center CNBC video. On a day when many of the broader market stocks and manufactured housing related firms were mixed, that will be our featured report for this evening.

Today’s markets and stocks snapshot, at the closing bell…



Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Still from video, below.

Having covered several topics last week through the lens of left-of-center media, we’ll turn this evening to a right-of-center business news source first before providing some balance from left-of-center CNBC.

Fox Business interviewed co-founders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone on the challenges they faced getting the retailer off the ground to become the success it is today and the potential pitfalls of socialism.

The co-founders of Home Depot spoke in part about Bernie Sanders (VT-I) who caucuses with Democrats and is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. If the self-described Democratic Socialist Sanders were president when they tried to open their business in 1978, the home-improvement retailer may never have existed, said billionaires Marcus and Langone.

Home Depot is the poster child for capitalism,” Marcus said.

Langone agreed, “if the people in America today … if they want to know what the future holds for them following Bernie Sanders, go to Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, Eastern Europe. Guess what? It doesn’t work.”



The pair also weighed in on the vexing tariffs and trade issue and related issues that Kevin Clayton, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway owned Clayton Homes tackled in May on left-of-center CNBC.


Lagone and Marcus have their say in the video above, while those who may have missed Kevin Clayton’s say is found below.

Someone with the handle CC posted a comment on Clayton’s video interview above that said: “sounds like your company is filling your homes with Chinese made products, if the price is going up, why not consider something made in the US?
