    Pretty sure diamond's top guys are guilty of number 3. People who hold the most diamonds all said they'd keep prices high and only sell a fixed number per year so that profits are high and remain that way.

    Thing is, now their market is dying cause the new generations are settling for alternatives or simply not buying them as much. As well as the decline of diamond's best friend, weddings, what I'm also certain is also declining.

    Doctors no longer take the Hippocratic oath and haven’t in quite some time. I’m a doctor aged 52 and my father is a doctor aged 72. Neither of us were required to take the oath.

    I dealt with drama for so many years trying to get doctors to help me out. They played so many games with me telling me I have anxiety when I'm legitimately feeling pain and illness. Then one day it struck me, I thought I was going crazy, but reality was doctors were refusing to help because of my insurance. I'm thinking if just traveling to Mexico for help now. Lol. My grandparents seem to like it better.

    You know why you can't import cars younger than 25 years to the us? Mercades and some other groups lobbied to ban the import of them since people were buying nicer versions of the cars overseas then importing them.

    my dad's a surgeon. he used to work at multiple hospitals throughout the town, and one of them would always forward patients to another hospital because they didnt have insurance (I dont think it was the doctors themselves who refused, it was probably the business side of it).
    Because of some other inside issues, a bunch of the surgeons working at that hospital moved to work at the hospital they were forwarding all the patients to.

    And politicians say that we have too many restrictions on businesses in the United States... usually politicians who are getting paid by some business or other to say those things. Some day we will make "lobbying" bribes illegal, but until then I guess we just have to bend over and accept it every time a big corporation decides to screw us.

    First off, only 30% of medschools even offer the Hippocratic Oath so the misconception that all doctors are bound by oath is misleading. There are other oaths that medstudents take when they receive their MD. The Hippocratic oath is dated and does not accurately portray contemporary attitudes towards medicine care. The issue that doctors aren’t treating those without insurance has a different reason.

    I found a job on Craigslist where I'd be selling food at a concession stand out of a wagon during a lacrosse tournament with people all over the USA coming for their kids to play. It was only a couple days. One day I dropped a hotdog on the nasty ass floor. I went to throw it away when the lady grabbed my arm and asked what I was doing. I handed her the hotdog and she popped it right into a bun then served it. Just a dumb little story but think of all the times you've eaten food that was actually on the ground covered in dirt

    Some are very incorrectand disgusting practices, but I think that two of them don't fit on this list and are very misunderstood:
    - Tax havens: Taxes in a lot of western countries are way beyond what could be considered correct and they're downright legalized extorsion. It is a fact that businesses of all sizes, and therefore a country's economy, thrives when taxes and bureaucracy are low - and that a government desperate for high taxes is also one that is a black hole for money and extremely inefficient in spending.
    Small countries that are developing or that are geopolitically disadvantaged give business owners, even small ones, a win-win deal. Malta is a heart-warming example of how a business friendly government can make all kinds of citizens stupid rich and happy - even unskilled ones that wouldn't stand a chance in a global economy if left for themselves..
    It is not unethical, and actually bigger western countries should be learning a lot of things from this.
    Price standardization: the differences aren't nearly that big in reality. But even if, this still favors a lot the developing country through jobs, taxes an especially improvements to the touristic sector - while making more profit for the corporation. Therefore also a win-win scenario.

    There are no ethics in capitalism. When a state endorses the free market economy, it endorses all these practices, meaning that a capitalist state actively works against the majority of its people. Saying that capitalism would work fine if people didn't do this, is like saying basketball would work fine with no points.

Yet how did someone do so and get money?

    The authors of this video need to be better fact checkers. In the US, if a patient presents to the emergency department for any reason whatsoever, they must be evaluated for and treated for any life or limb threatening situation. This includes imminent delivery of a child. Patients cannot be turned away due to inability to pay. It's called the EMTALA law (Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act). I've been an ER RN for 20+ years and worked in hospitals all across the US. I have never seen nor heard of any patient being turned away at the ER doors.

    EU regulation as a result of lobbies: if a product has a 15% of the diary recommended dose (drd) of the active ingredient that has scientifically proven its efficacy, you can announce that the whole product (even implying all the other ingredients) has this effect as long as it is disclamed in the small print (as small as you want) which are the ingredients that have such effects.
    e.g.: New very expensive tryptofan tablets that balance your mood and your brain*.
    *It is the cheap 15% drd magnesium in the tablets what is doing that ( and it is 6 times less effective as 100% drd cheap magnesium tablets but I am not gonna tell you that).

    This isn't accurate. I work in the health care profession and do open heart surgery here in the USA.
    I work in a poverty stricken area and we never refuse an emergency. As a matter of fact every place I worked never ever refused surgery to an emergency. The only way an emergency surgery is not done is with the patient or family's refusal as we cant go against their wishes.
    I've operated on plenty of patients who use charity care or have nothing at all- by which they consult a social worker after we save their lives.
    Please check your facts. You credibility for me has plummeted.

    A review of your list.
    #1 is unethical in regards to the lawyer and his firm.
    Anyone with half a brain would realize that energy drinks are not going give him/her wings. It's supposes to make one less sleepy.
    #2 has nothing wrong with it. Unless there is some sort of libel involved, there is nothing unethical about showing why their competition sucks (just like your graphics).
    #4. Every person should have the right to refuse service, including doctors. They are not slaves for a freeloader to mooch off of. Unless the public is paying for their medical education, they owe the public nothing.
    #7 & #9 is what you get for having a progressive tax code and massive nanny state . Businesses are going to find a way to write a loopholes and evasion for themselves.
