Business Ethics: What Everyone Needs to Know
- March 06, 2023
Join the Stigler Center for a conversation with J.S. Nelson (Harvard/Villanova Law Schools) on her new book, Business Ethics: What Everyone Needs to Know (with Lynn A. Stout), moderated by Chicago Booth’s John Paul Rollert.
In today's turbulent business climate, business ethics are more important than ever. Surveys of employees show that misconduct is on the rise. Cover stories reporting indictments, prosecutions, and penalties imposed for unethical business conduct appear almost daily. Legislatures pass requirements elevating the levels of punishment and their enforcement against corporations and individuals. Organizations face pressure to design and implement effective ethics and compliance programs. As a result, businesses and businesspeople are increasingly worried that their conduct might cross lines that put their wealth and reputations at risk. Business Ethics: What Everyone Needs to Know explains what those lines are, how not to cross them, and what to do when they are crossed.
