Business vs ethics

Sample this thought: “No matter how hard it tries, business can never escape the fact that it is the practice of potentially thieving, treacherous, lying human beings. Its challenge is in reining in the thieving, treachery, and deceit sufficiently that the entire edifice of business and society does not dissolve into a medieval version of hell.” Thus writes Philip Delves Broughton in a chapter titled Ethical Jihadists, in What They Teach You At Ha rvard Business School: My two years inside the cauldron of capitalism.
