Abstract

This comment is offered in response to Hansen's “A Multidimensional Scale for Measuring Business Ethics: A Purification and Refinement”. Five issues arising from Hansen's purification and refinement efforts are addressed. These include the issues of parsimony, predictive validity, collinearity, reliability, and what we see as a confusion between normative and positive theory.
