these dangerous products,

what's the motive to be ethical?


Well, if they keep

swindling everyone,

our consumer-based economy

will have no consumers left

with money to spend.

That's another good point,

but that addresses the long

term profit motive.

How do you see

ethics being beneficial

in the short term?

I don't.

How has unethical

business hurt Wall Street?

Well, it's true. A lot of

banks have profited a lot,

but it's also true that

a lot of banks have gone under

and are continuing to do so.

Yeah. How does that

hurt that personal profits?

Well, that's another topic

we'll be addressing later.

Business ethics

and human values.

Right now, we're just

focusing on ethics and

the profit motive.

So, you don't see

ethics being beneficial

in the short term?

Ethics are for little people.

I mean, if it's just about

this quarter's profits,

then the only role

they play is a burden.

Let's try and find some

reasons anyway, shall we?

Okay, so just remember to

read the rest of that chapter

and answer the

questions in the back.


So, how is everything

else going?

Um, I went for a hike

over the weekend.

My leg was sore as hell

when I got home, but it

felt good to do it.

I know I should've been

going over my school work.

No. That's great.

I'm happy you were

able to do that.

Yeah. It was like a little

taste of freedom again.

Well, you need that,

you know?

Get caught up here,

but I don't want you

to burn out either.

I don't know. I don't think

I really got the mind for it.

Are you kidding me?

You stumped teacher today

with your anti-moral shpeel.

I'm not anti-morals.

I just don't think they

mean a damn thing to the

people running things.

Don't tell anyone,

but I agree with you.

We can't teach that, though.
