- oriented away from the customers and towards the "Money-machinery" in general
- oriented towards money in the end.
In Capitalism , where "Ultimate Grows" is the ultimate goal, ideas and invention have no place - except when they can be exploited towards even more money growth (that's why there do exist those "Patent Trolls").
Honesty also has no place there - because you can't buy money for Honesty, so to say.
And that's imho why shareholder companies treat customers the worse , the more money-oriented they are : Everything that does NOT contribute to "money growth" is simply considered
- factor of cost
- a "non-contributing factor"
but in the end both is the same.
Which once again reminds me of the Nazis : They considered handicapped people
- factors of cost
- "non-contributing factors"
and therefore decided to "eliminate" them. Elimination of human people who did - in their eyes - do nothing but evoke costs.
Pure Capitalism is - at least in my eyes - similar : Everything that evokes cost or does not contribute to the "Money Growth" scheme simply gets eliminated.
Which - in my eyes - makes both "Philosophies" be at least "brothers".
In fact, the early Nazi "Philosophies" were in fact heavily influenced by the so-called "Ordoliberalism" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordoliberalism
