  • The problem with definitions of ethics in textbooks is that they are vague 
    and based more on belief than what actually happens. Ethics are not a new 
    phenomenon. It is the recognition of them that has come to the fore in 
    recent years. Since the Industrial Revolution there have been employers 
    and businesses that have adopted higher ethical standards than the law 
    demands. In fact these were times when there was little effort to legislate 
    in terms of employment or equal opportunities and yet many business 
    such as Pilkingtons and Rowntree became well known for their paternalistic 
    but strongly ethical culture.
