Free trade benefits both parties. That is how a moral person would conduct their business.

If one wants to compromise their sense of fairness and the golden rule, one can become quite rich with very little actual talent by taking advantage of a sucker.

'A sucker is born every minute.' P.T. Barnum.

Capitalism has produced terrible disparity in living conditions.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Capitalism has it's benefits, but it must be kept in check or we will see more situations like the ones that can be found in the religions of the world.

A image comes to mind of the pope and an AIDS infected child somewhere in an African gutter.

Thank goodness Bill Gates isn't like that.
