  • 10 months ago: Russian President Vladimir Putin, center, and the Netherland's Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, left, enter a hall for a signing of documents ceremony in the Moscow Kremlin, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2007, with Dutch gas company Nederlandse Gasunie NV President Marcel Kramer, right, in the background. Russian and Dutch officials signed an agreement Tuesday to include Dutch gas giant Nederlandse Gasunie NV in the Baltic Sea pipeline designed to bypass several European countries and ship Russian gas directly to Germany. 

    Arrogant and ignorant oversight boards, courts and governments that have no clue for coherence, responsible development or proper governance... public nor private, due to the structural and endemic public-private partnership doctrine -P3- of communication chimera and information terror sustained by the parliamentary deficit of modern democratic wrongdoing.




    Can we teach ethics?

    Filed in archive Ethics by leon on June 21, 2006



    "Lasts fall, Bentley College management professor Tony Buono taught a class on corporate candals with colleagues pitching in from finance, accounting and even the philosophy department. The four picked through the cases of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco and Shell.
    "At the end of the semester, the number of students in a simulated trading room who were caught in misconduct or misusing information for insider trading was significantly higher than at the beginning. The students said, 'You taught us how to do it,' Buono recalled."

    A fascinating and thought-provoking story from this report that really sums up some of the questions about whether ethics can be taught.

    Ethics is very much about character. As this piece points out, the question is whether character is the missing part of the equation in the ethics classroom.

    Yes, but it's just a start. What's really missing from all the focus on ethics is morality. Ethics is about rules and codes of behavior. Morality is about a higher focus that goes beyond self-interest. It's something I have blogged on here.

    Everyone talks about creating ethical organisations. We would be better off building moral ones instead.
