• Michael Milken vs. Mother Teresa - "Is Greed Good?" airs tonight on FBN at 9 ET

      Who did more for the world? The jailed-financier Michael Milken or Mother Teresa? To most people, the question is absurd.

      On my show tonight, liberal blogger Sally Kohn answers, "of course, I'm going to go with Mother Teresa...because my heart goes out to her and I think she was a good person."

      I assume she was a good person. But when it comes to "doing more for the world", what does that matter?

      Mother Teresa helped thousands, but Milken, before and after he went to jail, helped millions. His high-interest (junk) bonds gave these companies money they needed to grow:

      Viacom

      Time Warner

      Cablevision

      Telemundo

      Toys-R-Us

      Mattel

      Hasbro

      LeapFrog

      Hilton

      Days Inn

      Holiday Inn

      Mirage Resorts (Wynn)

      MGM

      7-11

      Circle K. Health: Medco and Humana

      AMC Entertainment

      Barnes & Noble

      Calvin Klein

      Chiquita Brands Int'l

      Duracell

      Filene's Basement

      Kay Jewelers

      Playtex

      Think of the millions of people who work for these companies, and use the money to support their families, invest, give to charity, and become authors of their own lives.

      Mother Teresa helped the poor. Michael Milken, motivated by his own self-interest, helped many more.
