Book Description:

Since the late 1960s American culture has been involved in a struggle to articulate an effective business ethics. The scandals of Enron and WorldCom constitute egregious examples of the absence or deficiency of ethical decision-making in matters of commerce. The purpose of this volume is to inaugurate a dialogue on the common elements of all three Abrahamic traditions - Christianity, Islam, and Judaism - that touch on ethical issues in business. With more than 40 scholars, religious and business leaders joining the debate, this anthology is the beginning of a reconstruction of the understanding of the relationship between religion and commerce.

Main Features: The following questions are addressed:
Is a purely secular business ethics irremediably deficient?
Does a substantive business ethic require a religious and spiritual framework?
To what extent does current business practice reflect a spiritual dimension?
What are the various religious traditions' perspectives on the ethics of commerce?
Can the various religious traditions generate a non-adversarial, consistent, and coherent business ethic?
Is there a role for religion and spirituality in a global and post-modern business world?
