More and more, specific ethics policies that many businesses and corporations developed in the 1970s and ‘80s are not enough today. Transparency related to sources and materials, pricing strategies, and the public good is crucial for success of any business. The detailed document analysis begins with early essays instrumental in the creation and development of the field of business ethics and continues to 2019 by examining issues relevant right now, from harassment and discrimination to technology and privacy. This two-volume set includes in-depth chapters that provide a thorough commentary of significant primary source documents, including: John Stuart Mills: Utilitarianism; Ralph Nader: Unsafe at any Speed; Sarbanes-Oxley Act; Facebook, Big Data, and the Trust of the Public; and Wells Fargo account fraud scandal. Includes these subheads that guide the reader: Summary, Overview, Defining Moment, Author Biography, Detailed Document Analysis, and discussion of Essential Themes.
