From our collective notes… Thanks Charles!

 

1. Do people have a fundamental/absolute sense what the actual pay is of a worker versus a CEO?  In other words, if the ration between average and top is above a certain absolute amount, does it trigger some innate sense of fairness?
2.Do different industries have a tendencies to different ethical approaches?
3. What is greed?  Really, concretely?
4.What do owners want?  IS Friedman correct to assert it is always only profit maximization?
5. Which one is more pro-business: Ed or Milton?
6. Can you be capitalist and ethical?  Does “ethical” mean always altruistic and never self-interested?
