What is next? The future of capitalism.

Used to be:"Money is on the top of everything, the succesful is the one who gets it at any cost, no ethics are welcomed!"
"How can we make more money?"
"How can we make these guys pay more?"
These are the outdated questions, it doesn't work this way in today's world of business. Prefering money (evil) for people (for good) is killing/killed capitalism!
So, what's next? I personally think that the next formula for a success will be somewhat like this:" What is good for people is good for business too!" Thus, business people should/will start caring about people.

Please, people, what do you expect from near future (of capitalism), share with us?!

    Mar 20 2012: If capitalism continues to evolve in a way we witness , we can expect total disappearance of middle class in the capitalistic part of world. Rich will become richer and poor will become poorer. People will need jobs desperately and employers will set up almost impossible job demands on employees. Who survives-keeps the job, who doesn't - well...
    Maybe I sound defeatist, but that is how I see things. I am no businessman or anything of that sort, I am just observing current state of affairs. Correct me if I am wrong :)
