Ethics and Responsibility

Why are Business People / Managers not Ethical?

I do not know why people are losing their ethical behaviour when given a managerial position?
Don't you think good values and ethics are inborn character, but are influenced by the environment? Please forward your view as to how people on earth develop ethics everywhere.

Ethics Influenced by the Environment

I think ethics and good values are inborn, AND are all influenced by the environment. The environment you live in can change you ethically and morally, either positively or negatively depending on the kind of the environment.
To some extent, good values can be created by a person in himself step by step, the same applies to Ethics.


Ethics and Values

We can uphold ethics when we uphold values. Despite our efforts, we tend to go down on ethics due to greed or due to being overambitious, which results in losing our moral values.
When we have a clear corporate and social responsibility, we will be able to speak of ethics and values. Views and opinions are welcome.
