Connections: Honesty and ethics in business

Oct 17, 2017

Do you trust capitalism? Do you trust the people behind the biggest corporate entities to be honest and protect the public?

Maybe those questions would have had different answers 10 or 20 years ago, but after scandal after scandal, public opinions have been shifting on capitalism – so much so that a Democratic socialist nearly won the presidency and could still run again.

The Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation believes capitalism can be a force for good, if businesses follow ethical practices. We talk about honesty, why we lie, and the lessons of business ethics with our guests:

  • Bob Whipple, Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation
  • Donna Dedee, CEO of Holy Childhood
  • John Keiser, professor of business management at the College at Brockport
