"Greed, for lack of a better word, is good" ~Gordon Gekko
I get really tired of explaining this to all my liberal friends. Companies can only gain revenue by selling things that people want; and only make a profit if they sell these things for more than they cost to produce. In the process they give employment to people who prefer that job to any other they can find. Therefore, profit-making firms create wealth for their customers, owners, and employees. They steal wealth from no one. So why, my liberal friends, do you have such a problem with capitalism?
