Part of the Studies in Economy Ethics and Philosophy book series (SEEP)


Ethics is usually defined as the theory of norms or moral values. Moral values are basic to the social fabric of a people; they are the foundation of communal life. Moral values are guidelines for individual actions. They serve as guarantees for the behaviour of individuals being in accordance with the interest of the community. In sum, moral values serve the development of a good and just society.
