Category — Business ethics (course)
MasterResource is about energy (the master resource). But our ‘free market energy blog‘ is also about the economic system of market capitalism versus political capitalism. In fact, under the category Corporate Governance, entries can be found for
- “Bootleggers and Baptists”
- Business strategy and messaging
- Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
- Free-market capitalism/Principled Entrepreneurship™
- Political capitalism/rent-seeking
- Postmodernist philosophy
- Resource ownership
And so it was with great interest that I found out that Stephen Hicks, a Ph.D. philosopher in the Objectivist tradition, is teaching a course on business ethics to MBA students at Loyola University Chicago. Loyola’s business ethics program is considered one of the finest in the country, and, in fact, was ranked first in the country last year by BusinessWeek.
Professor Hicks is not your average philosophy professor. His thought is firmly planted in the real world, being a student of business practices, the dynamics of capitalist progress, and the dynamics of government intervention (how one regulation leads to another). Hicks is expert in both Austrian-school and public-choice economics to these ends.
