Business Ethics


By: David Stewart





Chapter 4: Rights and Duties



“The person’s reason for acting must be reasons that everyone could act on at least in principle.”



            - this quote was the universalism’s view, it means that a person should act in a fair manner wherein he/she isn’t just the one who can do the act, it should be and can be done by others to and that it should land on the principle of a person. If you are to do a certain action, you should think if that action can also be done by others and that it can be accepted by the public if being done.




Summary of the Chapter:



            Morality and rights, moral reasoning, the principle of Universally, Respect, and Autonomy was part of the moral reasoning. Rights and Fairness and the morality of the marketplace is also part of this chapter which consist keeping the free market free and a plea for moderation.



Chapter 5: Business and Customers



“Any advertising that takes advantage of individuals does not respect the individual’s autonomy.”



            - Advertising doesn’t mean that you tell someone something to take over them and make them a slave of what you advertise, it should be something to inform and give the right knowledge to someone about your product and give them the power to choose whether they’ll buy it and accept it or not.





Summary of the Chapter:



            Chapter five based its lesson on the business and long-term considerations, the company and the consumers, the criticisms of advertising in terms of misrepresentation, paternalism, manipulation, and taking the unfair advantage over the market. And this chapter also talked about the consumers safety and product liability.




Chapter 8: Why Bad Things Are Done by Good People



“We treat ourselves as impersonal entities who are merely being swept along by forces over which we have no control.” by Jean-Paul Sartre



            - We as people who live according to our senses and jives with our environment tend to be manipulated and do certain decisions that even we, actually do unconsciously, that would pertain to doing things right or wrong in an involuntary way. It states that some things around us do affect us greatly that even our decisions we’re being deviated by those forces around us.



Summary of the Chapter:



            This chapter talked about bad behaviors and self-understanding. The Existentialist analysis, patterns of bad faith, the power of abstraction, and bureaucracy and depersonalization. The encouragement of moral behavior is also part of this chapter wherein we make employees moral guardians, reward their ethical behavior and we establish role models for them to follow and learn on.
