Written for an educated audience, Norman Barry's Business Ethics analyzes the contemporary business ethics scene from a refreshingly pro-business point of view. He calls for a common sense approach to business ethics in dealing with the responsibilities of business, and rightly points out the dangers of over-zealous regulations, stakeholder abuses, and political manipulations of the marketplace. Barry's book is highly recommended for business colleges, and anyone else interested in understanding the contemporary world of business ethics.
