Book Description

Current Issues in Business Ethics analyzes the questions which underlie business activities, arguing that the prime object for a legitimate business must be sustainability. It also looks at the issues between individuals and business and asks whether businesses can support their employees as an alternative to family and church. Finally it assesses the impact of most recent trends in business looking at:
* the activities of multinational companies
* the changing gender balance
* privatization
* the loss of power of the trade unions.
