Drei FAQs zur Wirtschaftsethik in Fratelli tutti Wie wollen wir warum wirtschaften? Wer soll wo handeln? Hat Franziskus Recht?

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 49 - 59

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Pope Francis’ encyclical Fratelli tutti (2020) is also interesting from a business ethics perspective. In terms of a systematic analysis, it seems promising to distinguish three different perspectives that are well established in academic business ethics. The three perspectives can be operationalized using three corresponding questions. How do we want to do business and why? Who should act and where? Is Pope Francis right? Following these questions, the paper highlights the key aspects of Francis’ business ethics in FT and beyond and establishes some cross-references to the current, especially German-speaking discourse on business ethics.

Stakeholder Management, Cooperatives, and Selfish-Individualism

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 61 - 75

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

We analyze stakeholder management (STM) relative to cooperation and individualism within the fourth industrial revolution (FIR). STM is a recent corporate governance tool boosting cooperation and allowing representativeness of individualistic behaviors even in dialectical environments. Though forerunning it, cooperatives massively use STM now, while the FIR demands cooperation also at non-cooperative enterprises. We reach two main conclusions. Deeper orientation towards STM helps solve the shareholder management (SHM) crisis. Moreover, exemplifying the benefits of STM towards social and environmental goals, cooperatives can inspire also other companies aiming to reduce the negative externalities of SHM and profit from cooperation within the FIR.

Wie werden Ethik und ethisches unternehmerisches Handeln gegenüber den Stakeholdern kommuniziert? Eine Analyse der Geschäftsberichte der DAX30 Unternehmen

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 77 - 95

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Our content analysis of the reporting of the DAX30 companies shows that the focus is primarily on compliance, codes of conduct, company-specific sustainability, CSR and corporate citizenship programs. Ethics and sustainability departments are positioned close to the board of directors and company management, which emphasizes the strategic relevance from a company perspective. The results help to summarize and compare the communication between companies and their stakeholders in the context of ethics and to identify potential for improvement.

Digital Platforms and Competition Policy: A Business-Ethical Assessment

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 97 - 119

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The debate around ‘big tech’ and competition law and policy has gained traction over the past few years – not least because of the various ongoing antitrust investigations in China, Europe, and the U.S. This paper builds on the renewed interest in the topic and discusses the key characteristics of digital markets, the business models and strategies of major tech platforms such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google, and the corresponding antitrust issues. It does so by utilizing a distinct business ethics perspective, i.e., ordoliberalism. By doing so, the paper not only aims to enrich the current debate on big tech and antitrust; it also intends to illustrate the continuing relevance and importance of ‘German neoliberalism’ in the 21st century.
