Is business immoral, amoral or something else?
Many of you will be familiar with Steve Holmes's writing on many topics of interest to us all. Among other things, to my understanding, he has a pretty low opinion of business in general as it is conducted by many companies in capitalist economies.It certainly seems to be the case that, from a certain perspective, many businesses are selfish, rapacious, manipulative, exploitative and ruthless. In short, they're amoral at best and immoral at worst. Sadly, the experience of many socialist economies indicates that organizations in non-capitalist economies are no better, and often worse.Given the size and complexity of modern societies, and the fact that they're mostly run by human beings, is there any real hope for a Politics and Economics of The Common Good?
