Business Ethics is Derailed by rationalisations. Rationalizations are common excuses we hear in so many words:

  1. “Everyone is doing it.”
  2. “It’s just this once.”
  3. “No one will notice.”
  4. “I won’t get caught.”
  5. “Business is business.”
  6. “It’s just a small amount.”
  7. “I deserve this.” etc. etc.

Our ability to rationalize our behaviour is astonishing and quite dangerous.
