Not capitalism - GREED
This problem wouldn't exist if research and educational institutions didn't tolerate such fraud. The penalty should be expulsion from the research community, not a slap on the risk and extracting a promise to do better in the future (oh, and you can keep the research grant).
And this isn't an outcome of capitalism; it's greed. Greed for money, fame, admiration, or respect., just like teachers who cheat on class test scores. It is well known that many USSR climate studies were (are?) compromised by researchers deliberately misreporting temperatures. How much coal/heating fuel they got from the government was dependent upon how cold it was, so they reported falsely lower temperatures. (Now that actual temps are being reported, the USSR/Russia 'warm-up' is part of climate change!).
Returning to this problem: the penalty for deliberate falsification of research should be to rescind that person's credentials, and ban him/her from research in that field.
