Fundamentals of business ethics

A Developing Country Perspective

by Juan Manuel Elegido

This book has been written specifically for the needs of plasticising executives, primarily those working in Nigeria. It covers the main issues that arise in the field of business ethics both at the corporate level and at the level of the individual manager. At the corporate level, it discusses in detail the main responsibilities of business firms towards their employees, providers of funds, customers, suppliers, distributors, competitors and the communities in which they work. At the level of the individual managers, it highlights the main responsibilities of business executives towards their firms, paying special attention to the practical implications of the manager's position as fiduciaries. Fundamentals of Business Ethics: a Developing Country Perspective (Second Edition) is written in lucid and simple language. The book captures those questions of general ethical theory which have special relevance to business ethics. Though the primary audience of the book are business executives, yet students of philosophy, business administration, business law, purchasing and supply, and economics will find this book very useful.
