In an attack on the materialistic culture produced by capitalism, Dorothy Sayers wrote:
“It was left for the present age to endow Covetousness with glamour on a big scale, and to give it a title which it could carry like a flag. It occurred to somebody to call it Enterprise…. It has become a swaggering, swashbuckling,piratical sin… its war-cries are ‘Business Efficiency, ‘Free Competition’,’Get Out or Get Under!’ and ‘There’s always room at the Top!… it gambles and speculates; it thinks in a big way, it takes risks…”
[Creed or Chaos, 1947]
