Overview

CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN BUSINESS ETHICS, 6E introduces readers to business ethics by focusing on the influence of market mechanisms and social values on workplace norms. And because business is increasingly a global enterprise, this edition emphasizes the role of ethics both at home and abroad. CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN BUSINESS ETHICS, 6E also takes time to look at ethics from the unique perspectives of either employee or employer. Along the way, readers also learn about such topics as ethical relativism, ethics and the law, virtue ethics, and ethical decision-making.
