Throughout recorded history, the primary sources of conflict in lifehave been religion and ethics. The 21st Century is right on track, fromthe war in the Middle East to sectarian violence nearly everywhere else. Hardly a day goes by without headlines about religious conflicts.
Additionally, the news is filled with the shenanigans of Enron, WorldCom, andSolyndra, forcing hard questions about business ethics to the forefrontof peoples' minds.
THE GODS OF BUSINESS is an indispensableguide for discovering the intersection of faith and the marketplace. Inplain language, Dr. Hallqvist Todd Gerald Albertson reveals the anatomyof the world's major religions - Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism,Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Secular Postmodernism, Shintoism, and Sikhism - and discusses how their spiritual traditions impact business ethics.
Provocative, eye-opening, and funny, THE GODS OF BUSINESS provides telling insightsinto the loudly proclaimed dogmas and silent subtleties thatdramatically affect individuals - businesspeople, educators,politicians, journalists, students, and others - who are unaware of, orconfused about, diverse religious beliefs, or who are just wishing theycould turn back the clock and deal with their hometown ways of doingthings.
