Faith, Morals and Money by Edward D. Zinbarg

Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

Most books on business ethics approach the subject philosophically. What's wrong with this, says Zinbarg, is that it neglects the most important source of most people's understanding of right and wrong: their religious tradition. While philosophy can shed the light of reason on the ethical dilemmas of economic life, it's less than convincing about why we ought to behave well. It lacks the compelling urgency of religious faith. Following a wonderfully lucid and succinct summary of the ethical systems relative to business of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism, the author presents a variety of case studies (in lively dialogue form) from the whole gamut of economic life.
