This subcategory refers texts satisfying criteria concerning both the “business ethics” category (i.e.,, “the application of ethical theories and concepts to activity within and between commercial enterprises, and between commercial enterprises and their broader environment”) and public policy issues – i.e., the evaluation of government policies and, more broadly, social decisions. So, papers referring only ethical aspects of business decisions, but with no reference to public decision-making or public concerns, do not fall into this subcategory; neither do papers focused only on ethical aspects of public policies and economic decisions, without discussing decisions made by agents in market transactions or corporate environments. Thus, we distinguish papers that fall under this category from papers that are best classified exclusively under other areas in political philosophy, philosophy of economics, bioethics, environmental ethics, or under other categories in applied ethics and business ethics.
