The article from The Huffington Post (March 17, 2011) linked below leads to Ethisphere’s list of the 110 World’s Most Ethical Companies. Having an awareness of the companies on the list is part of encouraging higher standards of corporate ethics. The subject of business ethics has its foundation in principles of balanced-virtue. With continuing grass roots pressure, business ethics can evolve toward even higher standards. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/17/microsoft-most-ethical-company_n_837003.html

I would highly recommend listening to Naomi Klein’s talk “Addicted to Risk” recorded at TEDWomen (Dec. 2010). It is about 20 minutes. Her talk is an excellent analysis of the recklessness of some leadership in business and government. Her talk is in essence a call for greater balance in certain virtues: moderation (as opposed to greed); confidence (as opposed to hubris and overconfidence); foresight (as opposed to a lack thereof); optimism (as opposed to overoptimism); excellence (as opposed to a lack thereof); and wisdom (as opposed to ignorance).
