This is a process in which regulatory agencies get overtaken by the industries they were in charge of regulating. This happens when an agency, which is supposed to benefit the public interest, begins to act in ways that benefits the industry it’s supposed to be regulating instead of the public. It is actually a form of political corruption because it benefits the company and special interest groups. It creates a way for political groups to use these agencies to benefit themselves in a way that is wrong to the public. Regulatory capture happens because groups or people who strongly want a particular political outcome will focus their money and energy on making sure things go their way while the general public, who has less interest, will pay less attention to it, or ignore it completely.
It is important to see the two sides of this argument in order to weigh the consequences. First of all, the idea of spying on people or getting information without consent has never been considered ethical/the right thing to do, even when there has been enough reasons to justify it in other cases. This might compromise the company’s integrity and image with their customers.

If Mr. Bucket, the attorney, used duty-based ethics he would not bride the judge in order to win the case for his client. Under the religious ethical standard he would not pay the judge off because even though the act may seem fair the act is not justifiable and is immoral. This would be just like Robin Hood who is still seen as a theif eventhough he was redistrubution the wealth to those who needed it more. Furthermore, Bucket would also say no because of kantian ethics. To use this form of ethics one must ask, if everyone bribed the judge to win their case how would it affect our justice system?
If we knew everything that everyone in there did there could be some miniscule reason for each to be expelled, but they’re not. It is not the job of the Hall of fame to show the best people there was personality wise, but to show the players, this should be how it is, recognizing players for their skill and talent on the field, yet we are not letting a man perfectly talented enough join, for what, a few bets. No, I’m not trying to downplay the scandal, and I agree with the statement that what he did was morally wrong, but we should still recognize him.
