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.

 Abstract: This 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.
