However, it is the mindset of the "Martha Stewarts" of this world that ultimately created the Enrons, WorldComs, et al.

And the Hondas, the Standard Oils, the Microsofts, the Mercedes, and yes, even the MSOs ;-)

The doers who create wealth and capital empires are often the nastiest people you ever didn't want to meet. The are arrogant, dictatorial, amoral, and sometimes truly evil. But usually, in toto, society is better off for their existence and their labors, selfish though they may be. In seizing opportunity for themselves, they create opportunity for untold thousands.

If Martha is the woman we love to hate, we have to wonder why we love to hate at all.
