  1. James J. Angel & Douglas M. McCabe (2009). The Business Ethics of Short Selling and Naked Short Selling. Journal of Business Ethics 85 (1):239 - 249.
    The controversy over short selling has continued unabated from the introduction of modern equity trading in Amsterdam in 1610 to the present day. Nevertheless, the business ethics literature has not really addressed short selling. Short sellers not only profit from the misery of others, they also create it through their selling activities.

  2. James J. Angel & Douglas M. McCabe (2009). The Ethics of Speculation. Journal of Business Ethics 90 (3):277-286.

  3. James J. Angel & Douglas M. McCabe (2008). The Ethics of Managerial Compensation: The Case of Executive Stock Options. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 78 (1-2):225 - 235.
    This paper examines the ethics of contemporary managerial compensation in the context of executive stock options. Economic considerations would dictate that executive stock options should be adjusted to eliminate the effect of overall stock market movements which are beyond the control of the executive.

Adjusting for the influence of outside factors, such as a generally rising stock market, (...)
