Business Ethics Daily Roundup – January 15, 2010 – Chuck Gallagher Business Ethics Speaker

An interesting article appeared in the Wall Street Journal related to how business schools teach ethics and the impact of their teaching on the current state of affairs.  The article appears here:

Stop Bashing the Business Schools

Nice article on the difference between law and business ethics.  And, in my many presentations I find often that folks really didn’t know the difference at times between what the law requires and how ethics interplays.  The article is here:

The difference between law and business ethics – four flavors of the month

Across the world attention has been focused on Google and their stand with respect to operating in China.  Some question whether it’s a money grab and others suggest (and I agree) that it’s an ethics stand.  This article from India shows how others around the globe feel.  The article is here:

Premium on Business Ethics

Lastly, the Ethics Resource Center issued a new report on the state of businesses and business ethics.  With a downturn in the economy and incredible media attention, it’s not surprising that (at least on the surface) business is operating at a higher ethical level.  The article is here:

Ring in the Year with Good Business Ethics – The Innovators

It’s unfortunate but many consider business ethics a boring topic.  It reality it’s far from that.  Today – January 15th, 2010, I spoke to the International Factoring Association on business ethics.  The presentation was unique (most of mine are) and when I was at the airport, I recorded a brief video blog.  You can see it here.  We discussed the three components that move someone from ethical behavior to unethical activities.  One of the participants stated that, “If my employees knew this, I think it might cause them to think before taking an unethical action.”
