    Virtue is Good Business: Confucianism as a Practical Business Ethics. [REVIEW]Edward J. Romar - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 38 (1-2):119 - 131.
    This paper argues Confucianism is a compelling managerial ethic for several reasons: 1) Confucianism is compatible with accepted managerial practices. 2) It requires individuals and organizations to make a positive contribution to society. 3) Recognizes hierarchy as an important organizational principle and demands managerial moral leadership. 4) The Confucian "golden Rule" and virtues provide a moral basis for the hierarchical and cooperative relationships critical to organizational success. The paper applies Confucianism to the H. B. Fuller in Honduras: Street Children and (...)

    Snapshots of the Future: Darfur, Katrina, and Maple Sugar.Edward J. Romar - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 85 (S1):121-132.
    Climate change represents a significant challenge to the entire planet and its inhabitants. While few, if any, will be able to escape totally the effects of climate change, it will fall most heavily, at least initially, on the poor, regardless of where they reside. We may observe already possible scenarios. The tragic situation in Darfur may be less an ethnic conflict and more a clash between marginal farmers and herdsmen in an increasingly more arid local climate. More powerful storms on (...)

    Managerial Harmony: The Confucian Ethics of Peter F. Drucker. [REVIEW]Edward J. Romar - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 51 (2):199-210.
    “Confucianism⋯ is a universal ethic in which the rules and imperatives of behavior hold for all individuals.” (Peter F. Drucker, Forbes, 1981). Peter Drucker is credited as the founder of modern American management. In his distinguished career he has written widely and authoritatively on the subject and to a large extent his work possesses a distinctive ethical tone. This paper will argue that Confucian ethics underlie much of Drucker's writing. Both Drucker and Confucius view power as the central ethical issue (...)

    Noble Markets: The Noble/Slave Ethic in Hayek’s Free Market Capitalism. [REVIEW]Edward J. Romar - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 85 (1):57 - 66.

This article will offer one possible interpretation of the ethical foundation of Hayek’s political and social contributions to libertarianism and free market capitalism by analyzing several of his important non-economic publications, primarily The Road to Serfdom, The Fatal Conceit, The Constitution of Liberty and Law, Legislation and Liberty. While Hayek did not offer a particular ethical foundation for free market capitalism, he argued consistently that free (...)
