Lie, cheat and steal are the minimum requirements for a "capitalist"....but Fair Warning: there is also a dark and gloomy side to capitalism.

This planet is organized around deceit and treachery ....and I am very happy to meet parents who try to raise "moral children"....they are so much more easy to deceive and steal from....oh!, I mean to steal "legally" of course.

Your position appears to be that capitalism is separate from our moral and ethical codes. If this is true, then you know nothing of capitalism, morals or ethics.

Looks like you missed the reasons for the Economic Meltdown of 2008.

Yes, unbridled capitalism is separate from our moral and ethical codes. Regulations are needed to prevent the big from taking advantage of the small. Teddy Roosevelt recognized this in the early 1900s and started regulation with antitrust regulations.

Capitalism has gotten much more sophisticated and big businesses now control the government not to put too many regulations on them so they can do whatever they want, moral or not.
