The aim of this book is to give a brief understanding of ethical side of global economic, political, and social issues in different cultures. The book begins to address many of the issues that have emerged for Business Ethics from the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Academic attempts to understand the financial crisis have, however, raised some key issues both about responsibility as a fundamental ethical category and the development of business ethics itself. This book explores all of these areas. Chapter one and four focus on the virtues. Chapters five and thirteen explore cultures and how they influence ethics in business. Chapters eight and ten develop the narratives of professions, particularly accountancy. Chapters nine and twelve connect business ethics to different disciplines, not least strategy and total quality management. Chapters eleven and six work through the narratives of different stakeholders, highlighting consumers and wider culture. Chapters three and seven focus on communication and IT ethics, which in turn connects to social ethics. Chapters one and two examine wider cultural perspectives and how they make distinctive contributions to business ethics.
