This paper provides an analysis of how some of the major areas addressed by philosophers throughout history are ones that can be applied to the decision-making and actions taken by executives in the finance/banking industry. Epistemiological considerations by such philosophers are also applied to working in finance.

From the Paper:

"One reason a high standards of ethics is required in finance is because those who work in the industry typically handle other people's money. Handling other people's money often breeds the temptation for unethical, immoral or even illegal behavior by those in the industry. The recent wave of unethical and illegal behavior by many individuals in the finance industry from Kenneth Lay to Bernie Madoff has encouraged many Americans and legislators to call for higher ethical standards and greater accountability among those in the industry."
