  •  I think "ethical standards" means just that (1+ / 0-)

    --not a law, but a recognition that such things just aren't done.  Getting that into the heads of people like Mitt Romney who think "greed is good" isn't going to happen any time soon, but it's more of a hope and a dream.  Maybe someday american businessmen would have an ethical code recognizing that this isn't an appropriate way to make money.

    Unfortunately, I think a lot of those sorts of people would sell their own mothers for a bag of silver.
