From the Paper:"The issue of ethics has become one of the most controversial topics in the public sphere in the past several years. Waves of corporate scandals in the earlier part of this decade, the subprime crisis, and money-losing banks spending bailout funds on bonuses are among the most prominent debates surrounding ethics. Yet, ethics impact all aspects of our lives. Ethics represent the moral codes by which a society governs itself. Ethics are specifically applied to interactions with others. From each action we take flows a reaction. The topic of ethics reflects society's concern with how the actions of one actor affect other actors in our society."
