Hi nadenekr,

Couldn't agree with you more. The ethical and legal problems in corporate America are just a reflection of the larger society and anyone waiting for a "return of ethics" in business is likely to be waiting a long time. If there appears to be a greater problem with ethics on Wall St. it's probably only because, as Willie Sutton said, "I rob banks because that's where the money is"

I watched Lou Dobbs last week talking about the need for more ethics courses in America's business schools. What a joke. If you need Stanford business school to teach you ethics it's about 20 years too late.
