520 3  To develop a vocation we ask: what do I want to be 
       remembered for? It involves aspiring to personal integrity
       and a life well lived. Those of us working in the 
       financial sector fulfill our vocations by finding ways to 
       serve its social purposes, which is to allocate resources 
       efficiently and to provide financial security--not 
       forgetting the needy. This means contributing to 
       institutions, where people can flourish personally, and 
       creating appropriate products and services. The ethics of 
       those working on finding their vocation do not flow from 
       rules and obligations, but from a personal commitment to 
       seeking the really good life. This life is based on the 
       fundamental personal virtue, which is integrity. It is 
       concerned with building well, tying our thinking to our 
       words and actions, our work to our motivations and to 
       intrinsic rewards, and means to ends everywhere. The book 
       is written for those who aspire to the cultivation of the 
       virtues of wisdom, self-control and courage--to develop 
       ourselves and protect ourselves from the intrusion of 
       others--and justice, which is the social virtue that 
       underlies flourishing communities based on mutual respect.
       We need communal structures and regulations to help us, 
       but these are better if they are less rule orientated, are
       forgiving, and aimed at bringing out the best in people. 
       The current flaws in the financial system of overcharging,
       over-servicing, and recklessness are unjust, but can and 
       are being addressed by those who rise to the challenge of 
       finding their virtuous vocations
