They are the "You take care of you and I'll take care of me generation." There are multiple reasons for their lack of ethics. A large part of it is the competitiveness that Americans have embedded in their minds. Back about 30 years ago I witnessed cooperation being shunned. I can trust someone that is cooperating. I can not trust someone that is competing. The eastern countries are largely based upon groups that are bonded with cooperation. Their institutions have proven to be more productive than American institutions based upon aggressive competitiveness.
