okay - are you talking the 44th century?
2. Maybe Ferengi do not like to wear clothes. They seem to be descended from amphibians and their homeworld is always rainy. Perhaps, their skin is resistant to the rain and wearing wet clothes is less comfortable than being naked for them.
3. Maybe they are too busy to seek profits
New Rules of Acquisition can be created as needed.
they are not allowed to speak to non-family people
they are forced to stay naked - brunt nails quark for his mom wearing cloth
they are not allowed to make profits - again brunt and quark
i mispelled that oo-mox
family business (ds9 III-23)
by the grand nagus and he will be at #285 in the 24th century
... and btw male ferengi are quite fancy dressers
Ferengi women only have to follow 4 rules!
1. This seems very strict but they might have created some workarounds.
2. We don’t know how the average Ferengi woman feels about clothes
3. how is this bad?
i'd advise to click the family business link above
Eh. “Bullshit” has become more casual. I’m sure it was said at few staff meetings as a adverb , at work.
As for “ You are making up things “...so? The OP admitted to it. They liked the Ferengi a lot, with perhaps more head canon than most of us. That’s fine. We all have come across posters who fleshed out a lot about one of the trek races. I wonder if the OP could do stories in the Fan Fic forums.
I saw that episode.
The problem is that we have only seen two Ferengi women and they both seem to be exceptional individuals.
that's because the makers of ds9 were way to prude to show us all the naked ones
We also having smiling Spock from "Where No Man..." and "Mudd's Women". There are other early instances that clearly show Vulcans have emotions.
They are both canon.
Here found on reddit : @Peter Quinn , @oberth
From what I've seen, young male Ferengi receive a basic education at home, from tutors, or at private grammar schools. Later education is very clearly a leap into apprenticeship and entrepreneurial efforts (CTRL+F "Education") with no formal schooling--as you'd see in the Federation.

Although I agree that capitalism works best with competition, remember that Ferengi society is not centered around capitalism. It is centered around greed, with a pseudo-capitalistic idealism built around objectivism and scripture. Nothing is level or fair on Ferenginar, but that's the point; you can't become truly wealthy on a level playing field, you can't be a despot without paupers. Their society is, technically, a mercantile theocracy that exists to perpetuate an endless cycle of selfishness.
Maybe Reddit not a primary source, But?
Please don't do this.
If there's something that needs to be dealt with, either @Nyotarules or I will deal with it.
So women do educate their children and are not just glorified housekeepers.
About greed and capitalism, I have a question. How do you define “truly wealthy”?
okay - it just angered me
Hella lots of money.
Both are canon. Being animated is not a disqualifier.
I remember when we went to Mexico during a high school trip when some guy came up to us and starting polishing some of our sneakers and demanding money because we were reach.
I think this topic belongs under the "Controversial Star Trek Opinions" thread, because that's all it is. The OP has already said this is straight from his head-canon and that it's okay to make things up as needed.
Separate names with a comma.
