The social relevance of ethics education in a global(ising) era: From individual dilemmas to systemic crises

Gordon Boyce

CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ACCOUNTING, 2008, vol. 19, issue 2, 255-290

Abstract: Ethics in accounting and business education must be considered in the contemporary context of neoliberal economic globalisation. Official responses to corporate scandals have included new laws and regulations, and some have argued that these scandals illustrate the need for change at an individual level, but this paper argues that the problem is manifested at a system level and that greater attention must be paid to the wider economic and social system within which individuals operate.
