Business ethics and the spirit of global capitalism: Moral leadership in the context of global hegemony

Journal of Global Ethics 2 (1):27 – 41 (2006)
This article carries out a critical analysis of the discourse/practice of Business Ethics that has developed to an unprecedented extent in the last decade or so. It argues that in the late-modern global political economy (GPE) there develops a form of a Gramscian hegemony of transnational capital and the discourse/practice of Business Ethics can be seen as a form of moral leadership in the context of the emerging hegemonic order.
