I guess I didn’t interpret that the same as you did. He wasn’t saying the business world provided morality, he said that neo-liberals believed it would, and of course, it didn’t. The belief became a convenient excuse to do as you please and then claim that market forces would impose an appropriate morality.
What you are saying I absolutely agree with and I don’t see Carvalho contradicting that.
This is, of course, the libertarian philosophy, that freedom always and inevitably leads to morality.
IMO the free market is like the scientific method and biological evolution in that it is a very effective method to reach an efficient result, but it is inherently amoral.
I will re-read it...I may not have received the correct context.
