I Think Next

I think the inflation prospects for the U.S. over the next five or six, seven years, are quite serious. You cannot have a bumper crop in apples without the value or the price of each apple falling.

Country Been

We have about 360,000 employees in the VA health care system. It's the largest health care system in the country.

Young Gardens

The largest issue with search is that we learned about it when the web was young, when the universe was 'complete' - the entire web was searchable!

- John Hoeven

Year Standard

Been Very

We've built the largest empire in the history of the world. It's been done over the last 50 years since World War II with very little military might, actually. It's only in rare instances like Iraq where the military comes in as a last resort.

Larger Francisco

Although the flagship brand, Pepsi-Cola, has always been second to Coca-Cola, the Frito-Lay division is ten times larger than its largest competitor, Diamond Foods, Inc., of San Francisco. Its products take up whole aisles at Walmart.

- John Seabrook

Country United

PepsiCo is the largest food-and-beverage company in the United States, and the second-largest in the world after Nestle. If PepsiCo were a country, the size of its economy - sixty billion dollars in revenues in 2010 - would put it sixty-sixth in gross national product, between Ecuador and Croatia.

- John Seabrook

Like Investor

We like to be the largest outside investor, and the first outside investor.

- Jon Crosby

Made Backed

We have to start processing what we're really made of in America. American character is not dead. American integrity and honesty are not dead. When we're backed up against the wall against the largest corporations in the history of corporations, it's there.

- Josh Fox

Book Formats

Say you're an American novelist, published by the largest publishing house in the world.

I Think Portion

I don't know if a penny's dropped somewhere, but you've had 'Lark Rise to Candleford,' you've had 'Cranford,' you've had 'Last Tango in Halifax,' you've had 'Call the Midwife'... I think the largest portion of the viewing public are over 55, and they like to see people they can identify with.

- Judy Parfitt

Third World Very

The 'Third World' is a term I don't like very much because we're all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.

- Audrey Hepburn

Law Egypt

Israel made peace with Egypt, the largest Arab State. There are militant Islamists there, but there is also law. There are agreements and also defense arrangements there.

- Ayman Odeh

Here Pillars

Here's a nation, one of the founding pillars was freedom of speech and freedom of expression. And yet, we have imposed upon people restrictions on what they can say, on what they can think. And the media is the largest proponent of this, crucifying people who say things really quite innocently.

- Ben Carson

Through Minerals

The Philippines has vast minerals that are still untapped. It has one of the world's largest deposits of gold, nickel, copper and chromite. Through responsible mining, we intend to generate more revenues from the extraction of these resources.

Career Maybe

I'm a professional geologist, an explorationist for oil. That's what I've done in my career, one that's culminated in - at least to this point - playing a part in finding the largest field in the last 40 years anywhere in the world. That's the Bakken field, which I believe will yield 24 billion barrels of oil in the decades to come, maybe more.

- Harold Hamm

United Been

There'd never been a more advantageous time to be a criminal in America than during the 13 years of Prohibition. At a stroke, the American government closed down the fifth largest industry in the United States - alcohol production - and just handed it to criminals - a pretty remarkable thing to do.

- Bill Bryson

Clean Energy Very

As someone who runs a solar financing company and founded the world's largest youth clean energy organization, I know solar energy is a very good investment.

- Billy Parish
