Recent scandals rocking the American business community have demonstrated the vital relevance of ethical principles to todays corporate culture. These principles are in fact quite old. They include integrity, truthfulness, fairness, human dignity, participation, social responsibility, and love. Through concrete examples drawn from many levels of corporate life, William Byron commends these principles to the minds and consciences of those who are now or hope soon to be the decision-makers in the American business system.
William J. Byron, S.J., teaches corporate responsibility at the Sellinger School of Business and Management, Loyola College in Maryland. Past President of the University of Scranton and The Catholic University of America, he was also distinguished professor of the practice of ethics in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. Father Byron writes a syndicated column for Catholic News Service. He is the author of many books, and the recipient of 26 honorary degrees.
