Excerpt: Preface from The Ethical Economy

The Ethical Economy

This week our featured book is The Ethical Economy: Rebuilding Value After the Crisis, by Adam Arvidsson and Nicolai Peitersen. Today, we have an excerpt from the preface to The Ethical Economy, in which the authors discuss the central question of their book: “can the ethical turn that we are presently witnessing among corporations, consumers, investors, employees, activists, and other stakeholders – their desire to address a number of concerns beyond the profit motive – become a basis for a new “social contract” in which the interests of business and the interests of society can coincide? In other words, can there be such a thing as an ethical economy?”
