This is a paper edition of the first book in the Ruffin Series in Business Ethics, published in December 1989. The book identifies a group of rights that are critical to international business and it develops a broad, normative, framework for use in interpreting ethics in a global market. It also proposes an ethical 'algorithm' for multinational managers to use in resolving conflicts between home country and host country standards. The availability of the book in paper will make it attractive as a supplement in the growing number of business ethics courses, and programs, in business schools.

Back cover copy

Business ethicist Thomas Donaldson offers three concepts for interpreting international business ethics: a social contract between productive organizations and society, the notion of a fundamental international right, promulgated by ten specific international rights, and a moral 'algorithm' to help multinational managers make tradeoffs between conflicting norms in home and host countries.
