And what specifically is wrong with that?

To quote an old Peter Fonda movie. Just what is it that you want to do?

Look I can be critical of mba programs but the fact of the matter is that businesses do have to exist in order to provide for basic incentives of production. Non profits exist to provide services for stakeholders but it is not the same thing. Governments do not exist in the same context due to their political nature and multitude structure (local, state, federal, elections etc)

Everyone has a role to play. You cannot expect the government to make everything in house. Otherwise that would lead to communism. Businesses have to balance their books, market, sell goods and services to customers and repeat the process in a constant competition with every other organization on the market. It is not that easy. Simple sure but not easy.

Without incentives it is hard to get anything done. True altruism can be argued that it does not really exist.

There is no greater freedom than the freedom of choice. Within that of course there are those that can make more money but who is at fault? The one that has it or the one that gave it to them?

This is not true. Few companies are unethical. You might want to step outside and take a look around.

Yes yes, anyone can post a mission statement or commercial that states ethics. Unlike hospitals they don't practice what they preach.

I don't see how that relates to you making stuff up. Whatever makes you sleep better at night.

There's no evidence that suggests that "Most companies are underhanded and unethical.". Keep dreaming.

You're naming the minority that were extreme enough to make the news. Do you have any evidence to support your claim that "Most companies are underhanded and unethical."? Or are you going to keep believing that nonsense without evidence?

Had you attended college, you might have had learned about sampling and extremes and realize how identifying a few extreme points is indicative of the entire population. Perhaps, they should teach this in high school instead.

Companies care about making a profit. They could care less about ethics. The only reason they pretend to care is it attracts customers.

I see you are in the habit of making up all sorts of things. Have any evidence or are you going to keep blowing smoke?

So companies don't care about progress? Looks like YOU know nothing about business.
