A few Fast Food Nation quotes:
One executive said, "Our competitors are our friends, and our customers are our enemies" (143).
Schlosser argues that the multinational corporations "feel no allegiance to any nation, no loyalty to any group of farmers, workers, or consumers" (248).
According to Schlosser, " The low price of a fast food hamburger does not reflect its real cost -- and should" (261).
One senator stated, "I do not believe that the great object in life is to make everything cheap" (266).
Schlosser hopes, "The real power of the American consumer has not yet been unleashed . . . I remain optimistic" (269, 288).
