  1. Sandra L. Christensen (2008). The Role of Law in Models of Ethical Behavior. Journal of Business Ethics 77 (4):451 - 461.
    In attempting to improve ethical decision-making in business organizations, researchers have developed models of ethical decision-making processes. Most of these models do not include a role for law in ethical decision-making, or if law is mentioned, it is set as a boundary constraint, exogenous to the decision process. However, many decision models in business ethics are based on cognitive moral development theory, in which the law is thought to be the external referent of individuals at the level of cognitive development (...)

  2. Sandra L. Christensen & Kymberli Grime (2006). Transparency and Corporate Governance. Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 17:209-212.
    The United States Securities and Exchange Commission recently began requiring mutual funds to make their proxy voting transparent so that investors can make better decisions about investing with the mutual fund and with the ultimate goal of improving corporate governance. We review the proxy voting records of major mutual funds to determine if transparency has changed the patterns of voting by mutual funds. Initial results show that support for management increased and support for social responsibility resolutions decreased after transparency was (...)

    If it is accepted that the real marketplace does not necessarily distribute wealth in the manner that the ideal market would have done, and that societal institutions have an obligation to bring the real and ideal market distributions into accord, then it can be argued that economic actors have a responsibility to consider the effects of their activities on the distribution of wealth in society. This paper asserts that businesses have a responsibility to consider the wealth distribution effects of their (...)

However, there may be a lack of Justice m the internal and external distribution of the social costs of doing business if consumers are the only party bearing (...)

  7. Sandra L. Christensen (1997). The New Federalism. Business Ethics Quarterly 7 (3):81-91.
    The new push to move political issue activity from the federal to the state and local levels—a new New Federalism—has implicationsfor the ethical and political legitimacy of business political activity. While business political activity at the federal level may be both lesscostly and less risky than when action shifts to states or localities, at the state or local level it is likely to be more visible, and individual firms may be perceived to have more power. Increased corporate power raises questions (...)
