Ethics and corporations: an introductory comment This introductory work aims to give a concise outline of the worrying consequences of some corporations’ activities in the capitalistic world economy of today. We’ll start sketching the different shapes of capitalism and the corporations’ role, as well as we’ll briefly mention the scandals and the deep crisis that have recently marked them. Afterwards, we’ll debate the most relevant changes occurred in management in the light of the growing demand of ethic responsibility by the world public opinion, also showing the harmful effects of the wide de-localizing politics both on a social and environmental level. Finally, we’ll consider the corporations development in front of consumer citizens’ demand along with the hard changes the tycoons of modern economy have to carry out in order to deal with global competition and social responsibility as well.
