Can anything good be said about modern business? Drawing on sources ranging from Newsweek to the Harvard Business Review and featuring such eminent social and business writers as Ralph Nader, Milton Friedman, and Peter Drucker, Essentials of Business Ethics critically appraises the evolution—and lapses—of ethics in the corporate boardroom.
This important volume takes a hard look at the idea of business ethics itself, the ways in which employees are treated, how corporations deal with questions of social responsibility and the environment, the ethics of multinationals, and more. It is required reading for anyone who wants to understand the major issues facing modern businesses—and the impact they are having on our world.
