About this book

Introduction

This book seeks to contribute to a more adequate coalescence of ethics and business with innovative models for such coalescence, for the mutual benefit of business ethicists, professors teaching in the undergraduate and MBA classroom, corporate executives, and businesspeople. While each of the contributions in this collection is distinct, each invites us to examine our own mind sets about corporate responsibility and the future of free enterprise as Western multinational corporations expand into a global economy. The world has become a ‘village’ and what were once thought of as externalities can no longer be dismissed as not part of the decision equation in business ventures. The alleged separation of business from ethics can no longer be a viable approach, if it ever was, as companies move into alien cultures and affect, both positively and sometimes questionably, traditional, non-western and nonindustrial mores of local communities. Globalization has challenged our parochial management thinking. This collection of essays helps to refocus our conceptual work about commerce and business practices in this new century of global enterprise.
