Ethics in Business and Management


SKU: 41d1845fe411 Category:

Ethics in Business and Management was voiced by many delegates of the Quality Summit organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry at Hotel Ashoka in Bangalore wherein the author was a speaker on the ETHICAL CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE MARKET. Though there have been some sporadic contributions on the subject here and there, a comprehensive work containing the unbiased ethical doctrines of Indian and the West, has been really a need of the age.

There are others who have created a notion that Indian cannot talk about ethics-it has to be surely borrowed from the West. These set of authors (only a few), obsessed by their anti-Indian Political doctrines and inclinations have deliberately misquoted Kautilya, Gita, and other scriptural tests of India to prove that Indians have favoured unethical practices and hence the western gurus are required to be invited for a new spell of knowledge for us to be ethical.

In the midst of all these cross currents, the author undertook the responsibility of presenting a comprehensive work on Ethics that discusses:
– The Indian view of Perennial Ethics and Value
– The Western view of Relative Ethics & Values
– Sacred Ethics and
– Secular Ethics
