Virtue Is Good Business: Confucianism as a Practical Business Ethics
Romar, E. J. (2002). Virtue Is Good Business: Confucianism as a Practical Business Ethics. Journal of Business Ethics, 38 (1-2): 119-31.
paper argues Confucianism is a compelling managerial ethic for several
reasons: 1) Confucianism is compatible with accepted managerial
practices. 2) It requires individuals and organizations to make a
positive contribution to society. 3) Recognizes hierarchy as an
important organizational principle and demands managerial moral
leadership. 4) The Confucian "golden Rule" and virtues provide a moral
basis for the hierarchical and cooperative relationships critical to
organizational success. The paper applies Confucianism to the H. B. Fuller in Honduras: Street Children and Substance Abuse case.
