With a Clear Conscience: Business Ethics, Decision-Making, and Strategic Thinking argues that it is possible to be successful in business while still maintaining personal and corporate integrity. This innovative new text provides students with the theoretical background and practical tools they need to make ethically informed decisions in the workplace and in society. The first half of the book focuses on the conceptual framework and tools needed to function
as ethical disruptors. The second half focuses on applying this knowledge and skill to business contexts where ethical issues often arise, including environmental concerns, advertising, corporate governance, negotiating, and whistleblowing.
In-text examples and case studies from Canada and other countries demonstrate ethical issues and solutions in action, and discussion questions help students to use critical thinking to grapple with the concepts they have learned. Students will also learn how to use game theory to understand social action problems and strategic negotiations. Throughout, the text promotes an approach to ethical decision-making that values collaboration, cooperation, and fairness.
