Following are my opinions only:

  I think we will enter a world where an employee will be more and more working under conditions of great stress and uncertainty regarding his future. It's unfortunate but this also makes for an apathetic employee and early burn-out candidate who will be less and less concerned about doing his job well and more concerned about his personal survival in a increasingly godless, dog-eat-dog society where hedge funds and private equity firms will gut companies for sport as an extension to their senior level college project with no regard for the quality of life for its employees. You will be competing (survivor style) in a Darwinian fight for fewer resources as the very wealthy and unscrupulous separate you from your happiness and dignity as they inequitably horde wealth.

  Having people take ethics courses is useless because you cannot teach ethics to someone who doesn't have character. Try to teach ethics to a Walmart manager, crack dealer, mortgage broker, crack whore or Oracle salesman.

  Also it would have to have been part and parcel of ones life from the beginning. Just the same way one cannot buy one's way into the patrician society in this country, because every aspect of the society would have to have been imbued into you from a young age. You will be found out as a fraud quickly and referred to as upscale trash with money.
