Like all the forces of the universe that created us as a result, economics is AMORAL. At least it should be in the free-market sense of the word. I think it somewhat parallels the theory of evolution and survival of the fittest. These are also both amoral systems that do what they do better than anything else. It's just an endless series of cause--->effect of which it's stupid to try and think we can control, because we don't even know what's coming! We can't control the invisible hand!!
