Moral Issues in Business with Student Resource Access 12 Months 3rd Edition
Business ethics has an interdisciplinary character. Questions of economic policy and business practice intertwine with issues in politics, sociology, and organisational theory. Although business ethics remains anchored in philosophy, even here abstract questions in normative ethics and political philosophy mingle with analysis of practical problems and concrete moral dilemmas. Furthermore, business ethics is not just an academic study but also an invitation to reflect on our own values and on our own responses to the hard moral choices that the world of business can pose. The purpose of this text is fourfold: to expose students to the important moral issues that arise in various business contexts; to provide students with an understanding of the moral, social, and economic environments within which those problems occur; to introduce students to the ethical and other concepts that are relevant for resolving those problems; and to assist students in developing the necessary reasoning and analytical skills for doing so. Although the book’s primary emphasis is on business, its scope extends to related moral issues in other organisational and professional contexts This third Asia–Pacific edition of Moral Issues in Business examines key ideas in business ethics in the context of moral and ethical issues encountered by Australian and New Zealand businesses and organisations. Structured within 11 chapters of text – including new, cutting edge ethical theories and practices – Moral Issues in Business presents the latest ethical insights and thinking in a manner that is accessible to students.
