    Cultural Insights to Justice: A Theoretical Perspective Through a Subjective Lens. [REVIEW]Patrick S. M. Primeaux, Ranjan Karri & Cam Caldwell - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 46 (2):187-199.
    Distributive, procedural, and interactional justice are constructs that are increasingly being recognized as important factors that affect individual perceptions in the workplace environment. This paper presents a theoretical perspective that suggests that justice is perceived through a subjective lens that consists of individualized beliefs and proposes that cultural attributes and demographic characteristics play an integral part in determining the perception of justice. The distinctions between these three constructs are presented in context with the core beliefs of individual employees – affected (...)

  2. Profit Maximization: The Ethical Mandate of Business. [REVIEW]Patrick Primeaux & John Stieber - 1994 - Journal of Business Ethics 13 (4):287 - 294.
    The authors propose a model for business ethics which arises directly from business practice. This model is based on a behavioral definition of the economic theory of profit maximization and situates business ethics within opportunity costs. Within that context, they argue that good business and good ethics are synonymous, that ethics is at the heart and center of business, that profits and ethics are intrinsically related.

    Rewriting the Bases of Capitalism: Reflexive Modernity and Ecological Sustainability as the Foundations of a New Normative Framework. [REVIEW]Uma Balakrishnan, Tim Duvall & Patrick Primeaux - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 47 (4):299 - 314.
    The debate on sustainable globalized development rests on two clearly stated economic assumptions: that "development" proceeds, solely and inevitably, through industrialization and the proliferation of capital intensive high-technology, towards the creation of service sector economies; and that globalization, based on a neoliberal, capitalist, free market ideology, provides the only vehicle for such development. Sustainability, according to the proponents of globalized development, is merely a function of market forces, which will generate the solutions for all problems including the environmental dilemmas that (...)

  5. Reinterpreting the American Dream: Persons and Ethics.Patrick Primeaux - 2000 - International Scholars Publications.
    Reinterpreting the American Dream is a uniquely pragmatic book on ethics and religion in today's world. Primeaux uncovers the complexity of human nature, in all of its potential for evolution. Though written from a Catholic viewpoint, the book encourages openness in the search for truth, postulating that this quest is the ultimate meaning in life. In an approach that emphasizes honesty with respect for others, and pragmatism with an eye for growth, the author sets the stage for those individuals who (...)

    When MR = MC: Ethical Efficiencies in Valuing and Pricing. [REVIEW]Patrick Primeaux & John Stieber - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 18 (2):201 - 211.
    How do we determine value? What are the ethical implications of valuing goods and services with respect to economic profit maximization? To answer those questions, Primeaux and Stieber move their discussion of the ethical principles inherent to economic profit maximization from production to distribution, from internal costs to external pricing and consumer demand.

    Experiential Ethics: A Blueprint for Personal and Corporate Ethics. [REVIEW]Patrick Primeaux - 1992 - Journal of Business Ethics 11 (10):779 - 788.
    There is a tendency to think of ethics as a universal body of principles governing human behavior. Richard R. Niebuhr challenges this universalist perspective by examining the development of human consciousness as an individual enterprise originating in immediate human experience. His conclusions lead us towards an understanding of conscience as likewise individual and experiential. It also enables us to identify a corporate consciousness or conscience which accounts for, yet prescinds, individual differences. In effect, Niebuhr''s thinking in these matters provides us (...)

    Vicarious Ethics: Politics, Business, and Sustainable Development. [REVIEW]Frank P. LeVeness & Patrick D. Primeaux - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 51 (2):185-198.
    An historical overview of the United Nations sustainable development initiative reflects a convergence of political and ethical concerns, and a need to incorporate business and the ethics of business into an inclusive perspective. Underlying all of the resolutions and recommendations ensuing from that initiative is the age-old question of “the one and the many,” with which theology and philosophy have grappled for centuries, and sociology and politics in more recent times. Inherent to sustainable development is a need to overcome that (...)

    Economic Efficiency: A Paradigm for Business Ethics. [REVIEW]John Stieber & Patrick Primeaux - 1991 - Journal of Business Ethics 10 (5):335 - 339.
    Current teaching, writing and thinking in business ethics reflects (more than) a tendency to subsume business into the theoretical, idealistic and impractical objectives of philosophical ethics. Professors Primeaux and Stieber argue against this tendency. They propose the basic business model of economic efficiency as a practical and appropriate paradigm for business ethics. Understood from a behavioral perspective, economic efficiency reflects all of the ethical considerations of the academic study of philosophical ethics, but in a much more concrete and applicable manner. (...)

    Double Bookkeeping: Hierarchical Obedience and Participative Cooperation. [REVIEW]Patrick Primeaux & John Beckley - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 19 (1):123 - 136.
    Rather than eliciting behavioral expectations of individuals for an appreciation of organizational ethics, we are focusing on the organization itself and the manner in which distinctive organizational structures assume their own respective behavioral expectations. The hierarchical organizational structure emphasizes obedience while the participative organizational structure emphasizes cooperation. Imposing the ethical virtues of one organizational structure onto another leads to conflict, and that conflict is reflective of a basic injustice which is (indirectly) organizational in cause but (directly) personal in effect. This (...)

    Managing Business Ethics and Opportunity Costs.Patrick Primeaux & John Stieber - 1997 - Journal of Business Ethics 16 (8):835-842.
    Economic profits differ from accounting profits. Accounting profits are usually defined as revenues minus costs, and those costs as fixed and variable. Economic profits enlist a third cost, opportunity costs. While these costs are difficult to determine with mathematical precision, they are nonetheless significant, especially for decision making in business. They reflect social costs and benefits, tensions between individual and corporate interests, and all internal and external considerations which enter into decision making in business. It is precisely within opportunity cost (...)

    Operationalizing Maslow: Religion and Flow as Business Partners. [REVIEW]Patrick Primeaux & Gina Vega - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 38 (1-2):97 - 108.
    Maslow and Csikszentmihalyi interpret human experience through a broad application of stakeholder theory to provide an expanded framework for ethical business. The aggressive search for mutuality of interest can reconcile conflicting stakeholder needs. Maslow's religious peak experiences work in tandem with Csikszentmihalyi's psychological optimal experiences (flow) to support the proposition that transcendence is an achievable goal, both for individuals and for corporations.
