Why be moral? You can step up and pick the belief system with which you are the most comfortable, cafeteria-style, but surely they cannot all be right? Is it fair to characterize any belief system as little more than a series of rationalizations that attempt to give order to, and make sense of, a life that is purposeless and a universe that is random?
When faced with ethical decisions what path or alternative paths might individuals take to facilitate their solution determination process?
Focus your discussion on the following:
- How does one rationalize their approach to determining what’s right?
- Was the financial crisis of 2007-08 inevitable given the state of moral and ethical decision making in the global business environments or a random event in a random universe that has no purpose beyond simply existing?
