http://media.blubrry.com/whatwillmatter/whatwillmatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/CC-020212_NoSuchThingAsBizEthics.mp3

Some years ago, a senior executive at a Fortune 100 company objected when I asserted that corporations have an ethical, as well as a legal obligation to keep promises and honor their contracts.
