BUSINESS ETHICS, Eighth Edition guides you through the process of thinking deeply about important moral issues that frequently arise in business situations, and also helps you develop the reasoning and analytical skills to resolve those issues if and when you might face them. Combining insightful and accessible textbook chapters by the author with cases that highlight the real-world importance of key ethical concepts, this book provides a comprehensive, flexible, and pedagogically proven course of study that explores the intersections of commerce and ethics. Shaw's uniquely thorough and practical guide brings clarity to such critical topics as the nature of morality, individual integrity and responsibility, economic justice, concepts of capitalism, and the role of corporations in our society (including their responsibilities to consumers and to the environment), and real-life moral issues that arise in the workplace.
