This anthology of journal articles and legal decisions is intended to provide business students with material that will be valuable to them after they graduate. It is hoped that each selection will raise questions and provoke discussion, and to encourage students to focus on evaluating business policies rather than on understanding moral theory. Contents: Ethics in the Law; Business Ethics; The Modern Business Manager; Moral Psychology; Employment in a Contract Society; Employment Privacy; Employment Discrimination; The Future of Business.
Business, Ethics and the Environment explores the public policy debate surrounding the issue of business and its role in environmental matters. Unlike other discussions on this subject, the major focus here is not the monetary cost/benefit of environmental protection, but instead, the ethical obligations businesses may have for protecting the environment. A variety of questions are addressed by the contributors, including: Are businesses obligated to protect the environment? Should private enterprises take an active and leading role in solving a national problem? Should the solution be entirely a matter of public policy, involving business only to the extent that businesses are bound by law? The work begins with a brief foreword by W. Michael Hoffman and an introduction by Robert Fredrick that outlines a framework for the debate and the major questions it entails. The essays are grouped in three separate sections, covering business and government interaction, public attitudes and involvement in environmental issues, and environmental problems and solutions. The first of these sections addresses a variety of topics and case studies, including hazardous waste management, low-level radioactive waste facilities, lessons from CPC regulation, and a Massachusetts solid waste dispute. The second section features a range of issues involving the public, such as the world-wide response to the environmental crisis, customers as environmentalists, and community-corporate conflict and the new environmentalism. Finally, the third section highlights such problems as the dolphin-tuna controversy, the use of animals by business, and international toxic waste trade. The work concludes with a comprehensive index. As a companion to The Corporation, Ethics, and the Environment, this volume of essays will be an important resource for courses in business, public policy, and environmental issues, as well as a useful addition to business, academic, and public libraries.
This is a report from the Woodstock Theological Center that distills conversations among the business, government, and academic communities to offer an evaluation and recommendations for creating and maintaining an ethical climate in a business corporation.
This book is comprised of essays and research reports for the search for well-founded knowledge that can undergird the collective understanding of ethics and values in the business world. After surveying the research activities of business ethics scholars in this collection of papers, some progress has been made to provide perspective and guidance for the work of professional corporate managers, fresh insights that may lead to new theoretical breakthroughs and an empirical, experience-based foundation of knowledge to guide those who teach present and future corporate leaders. Thereby this book also offers guidance to researchers who intend to take the field of ethical issues in business forward using empirical methods.
Georges Enderle Before presenting some introductory remarks on the topic of this volume I should like to outline briefly the context from which this selection of articles originates. (It seems to me necessary to emphasise these circumstances in order to make clearer the contours of what is said and what is not said and to understand it better. ) This context involves, flrstly, a general evaluation of the state of the business ethics debate today and, secondly, considerations of the question of what attitude and strategy should be chosen in order to promote business ethics most effectively. On the present state of affairs of the business ethics debate Today, it is extremely difflcult, if not impossible, to gain even a rough overview of the business ethics debate in the different countries of Europe and North America. Many activities take place in informal circles and on a local and regional level; linguistic and other barriers impede the spread of information about them and, often, they are not even labelled business ethics . At the same time, so many other things sail under the flag of business ethics that one sometimes wonders if it should not be replaced by another flag, for instance new methods of public-relations or better motivation of company's employees. Yet, in spite of these difflculties in deflning business ethics activities, one statement at least can be made with certainty.
