Economic Ethics and Business Ethics

1 post / 0 new

Economic ethics involves economic policy and fairness and goes beyond business ethics, profit maximization and shareholder value.

We face an inept and corrupt political and economic system that converts private losses into public losses, normalizes endless war and bank bailouts, transforms education from a right to a privilege, turns democracy, risk and liability upside down and promotes exploiding inequality and generalized insecurity instead of the good life and generalizedf security. Perversion and double standardsd are normalized when the state becomes a trough or errand boy for Wall Street banks (Bill Moyers). Trust and public spirit do not fall from the sky but come when people are treated as participants and not as a manipulable mass.
