A Rough Truth on Ethics
Raffaele Iannuzzi, Professor, Italy, Member
On this subject, I hold the thinking expressed by Benedict XVI in the "Caritas in Veritate": ethics is a matter of individual perspective.
It is cannot be imposed by codes or micro-laws within companies.
Yes, sure, I don't want to sketch that it there exists no survival-level of ethics in individual and economic actions, but that is just a "minimum level", the difference is made by individual action.
And even when the discourse on ethics is so widespread, there is an absence of that in reality, it's like with love and friendship.
Although this perspective is so little attended, I strongly believe that the issues about capitalism are linked to structural modes of reproduction of this so complex phenomenon and, therefore, the way to view the crisis is as a form of renewing and even reshaping the capitalistic model of production.
