I do think that capitalism does breed some sort of greed. Over the past three years there had been this huge desire for the "already wealthy" to be in the "Billionaire club".
I mean those Business owners and Hedge fund managers literally making deals with the devil to get them to that billionaire status.
But they're not doing anything wrong because they are simply "capitalizing" on "specific" opportunities in order to make themselves rich. Wheather it be driving up the price of oil, or using scare tactics to imply that the world is running out of food .....all so that we the people pay more.
And they would make the arguement that if we were as smart as they were, we'd be doing the same thing.
I'll be the first to say that hey "only the strong survive" and if I could do it I probably would but why not have a little of both capitalism and socialism to balance things out a little?
