Are ethicality and profitability mutually exclusive?

Research output: Contribution to Book/Report typesChapterResearch

Abstract

Are ethicality and profitability mutually exclusive? Is it really possible for a firm to achieve both ethicality and profitability at the same time? The conventional view states that business ethics is an oxymoron – ethical and business behaviours must be conflicting as economic profitability is more important than ethicality in business (Duska, 2000). Although some will argue that creating profit can make the world a better place, recent incidents do not seem to support this idea.
