Ethical Challenges Confronting Entrepreneurs within Contemporary Global Economy :
In Search of a New World Ethics

by John Saee
School of Business Administration
International University in Germany

ABSTRACT

There has been a sea change in the world economy with perceived far-reaching consequences on all aspects of human civilization. This dramatic transformation is largely precipitated by the phenomenon of globalization.
The transformation now taking place in the global economy is unprecedented. The increasing availability of global capital, coupled with advances in computing and communications technology, is serving to speed up the processes of globalization. Concurrently, the barriers to globalization are increasingly disappearing in most countries of the world (11). As a consequence, the word “globalization” is in daily use throughout the world: “mondialisation” in French, “globalisierung” in German, or “Quan qui hua” in China.

Identifying New Management,
Education, Leadership and Technology Paradigms for a Conflicting World

Throughout the world governments, systems are failing, breaking down. We now find ourselves with high unemployment, rising federal deficit, closed business, uninsured citizens, reduced wages, a large temporary workforce, corporate downturns, hypercompetitive environments, business closings, devastating global financial and economic crises, and natural disasters. These are just some of the factors that threaten the survival of individuals and organizations in highly volatile and complex environments. Scholars and practitioners are sought to bring forth their ideas, perspectives and/or approaches to stimulate discussion and solutions.
