Quote by Andrew Cuomo
I don't know people who don't say, boy the government is working better now.
This quote is a sarcastic remark reflecting cynicism towards the government. It suggests that it is rare to find individuals who genuinely believe in the efficacy and improvement of government functioning. By emphasizing the absence of such people, it implies that citizens commonly hold negative opinions about governmental efficiency and results, highlighting a general lack of faith in the system.
The truth is that good ethics sometimes is good business, but sometimes it's not. It depends on one's goals and how one defines good business. Sometimes, good ethics can end in bankruptcy. Of course, so can bad ethics. A fairer statement is that good ethics can be a very powerful business asset and that good things tend to happen to companies and individuals that consistently do the right thing and bad things tend to happen to those that even occasionally do the wrong thing. But the crucial point is that the moral obligation to live according to ethical principles is not dependent on whether it's advantageous. People of character do the right thing in the pursuit of virtue, not self-interest.http://www.josephsoninstitute.org/business-ethics_commentaries.html
