Conclusion: Let’s Start From Four

  • Marian Eabrasu
Part of the CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance book series (CSEG)


In the opening scene of the Italian movie Ricomincio da tre (1981), Massimo Troisi abruptly says, ‘I want to leave everything behind and start from three!’ Lello Arena retorts in response, correcting his statement: ‘From zero. The habitual formula is: “I start from zero” not “from three.”’ Incredulous, Troisi explains that he has only made three good things in his life: why should he lose them too by starting from zero? Using this humorous dialog, a simple way to conclude this book would be to say that we do not need to start from zero in building our conception of morality and apply it to choices in business: we can start from these four concepts: personhood, ownership, harm, and consent. It is at the level of these four concepts that our conception of morality is shaped and, conversely, debates on business ethics can be explained by disagreements on each of these four points.
