The world of business is closely associated with turning a profit, and for good reason: A business whose earnings regularly fall short of its overhead probably won’t last long.
But Brian Engelland tells us the ultimate goal of business is not maximizing profits, but serving others, and that begins with the ethical treatment of employees and customers. He lays out how it is incumbent upon business leaders to embrace and possess sound moral character, infused with the virtues, in order to conduct their business relationships with integrity and apply ethical principles to every decision. His approach is grounded in Catholic social doctrine, but it’s commonsense counsel for all business leaders.
