Why People / Organizations Act Ethically?
Jean Pauyo
There are two main perspectives on why people (or businesses) act ethically:
1. The first one is on deontologic principle: one has to do what is right because that's good in it self.
2. The second reason people what is good is because of the long term benefit they of it (utilitarianism). We expect to be treated well so we treat other people well.
Acting unethically is always a short term view. People who have short term perspective tend to act unethically.
 

 
To Be or not to Be.. That is the Question!
Mary R Brooks
I travel round the world working and I have to say that ethics vary from business to business and particularly from country to country. Some businesses (oligopolies too!) suffer from cognitive dissonance when operating in another country where they cannot stop things like corruption. It will go against all of their own company ethics and in their own country but they understand that unless the country they are operating in, and the larger demographics, suffer from that set of ethics then they have to "put up and shut up" and it all comes down to cash again!
