Stunningly Good Capitalism Speech from "Other People's Money&#

The clip above is about six minutes long from the Danny Deviot movie, "Other People's Money." I haven't actually seen the whole movie, though I am told it is not too relevent to the clip. Anyway, the context is that Devito is a "corporate raider" who comes to a small town to liquidate the remaining assets of a failing company which employs the entire town. Of course Devito is rediculed and attacked by the collectivst, communitarian, unionist townspeople who refuse to see reality. In this scene, Devito speaks at a town hall meeting following a rousing, "we can do it if we all chip in" speech from the union leader. This could come straight out of Atlas Shrugged.
