  • From Scholarly Dialogue to Social Movement: Considerations and Implications for Peace Through Commerce.Marc Lavine - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (S4):603 - 615.
    While Peace through Commerce (PTC) started as a conversation among a small group of scholars it has grown into an increasingly robust movement, giving rise to conferences, books, journal articles, and dialogue between scholars, managers, practitioners, government officials, and civil society actors, all of whom share an interest in the potential of commerce to foster greater peace. Because social movement scholarship explores the ability of collective interests to achieve social change it provides a useful lens through which to consider PTC's (...)

  • When Responsibility Can't Do It.A. Gowri - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 54 (1):33-50.
    Is being responsible good enough? Stone (1975) argued that we need corporate moral responsibility because neither law nor market is adequate to forestall harmful effects of business activities. However, it is not possible for businesses to become responsible for all forms of foreseeable, preventable harm that they produce. This is illustrated here by cases from insurance, television programming, automobiles and weapons production. Reflection on these examples leads to the formulation of a new conception of unintended harms as moral externalities of (...)

  • Package Downsizing: Is It Ethical? [REVIEW]Omprakash K. Gupta, Sudhir Tandon, Sukumar Debnath & Anna S. Rominger - 2007 - AI and Society 21 (3):239-250.
    Package downsizing is a practice where the package content is reduced without changing the package or the price of the product. In a market that is defined by ‘hyper-competition,’ package downsizing is often practiced by marketers to effect an invisible price increase for their products. Although marketers may maintain that providing, the legally required, quantity indication on the package is adequate for customers to make logical and informed choices, research indicates that consumers often do not consult quantity indications on packages (...)
