“It is precisely the ‘greed’ of the businessman or, more appropriately, his profit-seeking [motive], which is the unexcelled protector of the consumer.”

    Hi there,

    Just wanted to know your opinions on Greed.

    If all were free and individual enterprise the temple, with profit motive the only religion, would evils like exploitation and greed exist? Or by calling them evil I am displaying a bias towards a moral precondition?

    Would love to get your thots, unless you have already written on this – then please guide me there.
