Editor: Nova Publishers

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Business ethics is a form of the art of applied ethics that examines ethical rules and principles within a commercial context, the various moral or ethical problems that can arise in a business setting, and any special duties or obligations that apply to persons who are engaged in commerce. Business ethics can be both a normative and a descriptive discipline. As a corporate practice and a career specialisation, the field is primarily normative. In academia descriptive approaches are also taken. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the degree to which business is perceived to be at odds with non-economic social values. Historically, interest in business ethics accelerated dramatically during the 1980s and 1990s, both within major corporations and within academia. For example, today most major corporate websites lay emphasis on commitment to promoting non-economic social values under a variety of headings (e.g. ethics codes, social responsibility charters). In some cases, corporations have redefined their core values in the light of business ethical considerations. Catching business ethics in action, however, remains a seldom-spotted nugget for in reality it depends on the characters of the characters.

Author: Michela Betta
Pages: 181
ISBN: 9789401775908
Release: 2016-05-06
Editor: Springer

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Ethicmentality is an innovative book. It blends ethics with mentality to capture the interdependence of ethical life and social life creatively. The book is also innovative because of the way this interdependence is explored. By focusing on practical ethical behavior in today’s economy, business, and society, Michela Betta has advanced an understanding of ethics freed from the burden of moral theory. By introducing a new type of analysis this book also contributes to methodological innovation. Familiar issues are revisited through the notion of ethicmentality. Capitalist economy is presented in terms of a mentality embedded in society, culture, and politics. Government is revealed as mentality about how to govern economically through market freedom rather than human rights. The rise of the financial economy is described as challenging the traditional capitalist mentality of equal opportunities. A money mentality around debts and owing is perceived as having replaced credit and owning, and the rise of corporation managers as having destroyed the old mentality of ownership. Ethicmentality shows the potential of constructive critique from economic, business, and society perspectives. It also breaches traditional limits by developing the idea of ethical capital and entrepreneurial ethics. Ethical thinking is infused with the Aristotelian notion of virtues and moderation to reflect about modern work. Ethicmentality helps us see the complexity of social and personal life. Given the pervasive nature of mentality and ethics’ focus on individual deliberation, ethicmentality represents their productive combination, a new blend for ethical and social analysis.

Editor: Macmillan International Higher Education

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Business Ethics: New Challenges in a Globalized World provides a comprehensive account of the challenges facing businesses as they pursue global business activities. The importance of business ethics as an academic subject and business priority has increased significantly, as companies have increasingly been placed in the moral spotlight by shareholders, consumers, employees and governments. The growing complexities of the global economy demand a broader and a deeper view of business ethics than that offered by current management approaches that focus on reforming corporate behaviour. This book places business ethics in a richer contextual setting, focusing on the challenges that business must now confront, such as inequality, financial risk, migrant labour, climate change and human rights, and exploring how these challenges can be met by a rethinking of business models, goals and strategies. Key benefits: • Up-to-date overview of ethical issues in an international business context • Includes lively cases and examples from emerging economies which bring the subject to life • Encourages critical thinking skills in students Janet Morrison, now retired, was a senior lecturer in strategic and international management at Sunderland University Business School, UK 'Business Ethics: New Challenges in a Globalised World offers a practical look at the issues under consideration, and will contribute to a student gaining real insight and entering into critical dialogue on the topic of ethics in international business. Students using this text will be reminded of the fact that ethical issues are broader and deeper than we would like to think, and are encouraged to work out for themselves what they might do, or what they think others should do, in less than clear-cut situations.' – Andrea McLachlan, University of Waikato, New Zealand 'This book discusses the legal, social, political and international issues that set the context for some of the great ethical challenges we face in the world today. The integration of real life case studies and ethical theory provides practical application that will enable students to gain a much broader understanding of the issues involved.' - Carole Parkes, Aston University, UK 'Introducing a topic as complex and as widely discussed as business ethics is a very difficult task. However, Morrison succeeds in presenting a concise and well-written account of the field and its current issues. The book is a particularly good read for undergraduate students who want to be introduced to the field of business ethics.' – Berend van der Kolk, University of Groningen, The Netherlands 'This is an expertly written textbook. I am impressed by the international outlook of the book, the clear writing style and the excellent contemporary cases and examples' Marianna Fotaki, Warwick Business School, UK
