Capitalism has been seen in an increasingly negative light recently, especially with businessmen and women being described as “greedy, malicious, harsh” etc. In the book Doing Virtuous Business, author Theodore Roosevelt Malloch presents the idea that there is an alternative to the stereotype of capitalism and the business world.
The principles that Malloch presents aren’t new, groundbreaking ideas by any means, but they are ideas that need to be kept in mind. Normally at business conferences and seminars, you don’t hear any mention of business ethics. Malloch sets out to change that, one business at a time.
Somewhat of a dry read, this book obviously isn’t for everyone. But if you’re involved in business at any level, at least browse through it and glean the principles to keep you on a virtuous path in the workplace.
