9780130487636: Ethical Challenges to Business as Usual

This anthology contains a significant body of literature and basic approach that challenges the economic status quo while raising concerns rarely found in other books of this kind—providing readers with the critical selections and perspectives they want and need to make informed decisions. Demanding accountability, the book exposes business practices, economic assumptions, contemporary challenges, and the population's concerns. An ongoing focus links business ethics to environmental issues, and each and every business action to the earth's finite resources. A critical selection of topics challenges development, capitalism, market appropriation, human rights violation, consumption, transgenic biotechnology, resistance to development, environmental ethics, and alternative economies. For anyone who demands accountability from businesses.

From the Back Cover:

Shari Collins-Chobanian explores business ethics in this provocative new anthology which explains that within traditional topics and themes in business ethics, there is considerable literature which challenges the economic status quo and which is vital to students' understanding and ability to make informed decisions in business. The textual commentary and the over 55 readings—including both classic and commonly used readings together with new readings never before published in a business ethics anthology—expose business practices and the economic assumptions behind them, bringing contemporary challenges and the world's population's concerns into the classroom.

Features
  • Critical selection of topics—Replaces the usual pro/con approach and challenges development, capitalism, market appropriation, human rights violations, and consumption.
  • Topical coverage—i.e., transgenic biotechnology; resistance to development; environmental ethics; and alternative economies.
  • Interdisciplinary readings—Includes both classic and contemporary selections with which faculty are familiar, with the majority drawn from ethics and applied ethics.

Shari Collins-Chobanian is a professor of philosophy at Arizona State University West.
