Ethics Crisis Blog is Surprisingly Bland

Ethics Crisis is a blog that focuses on global business ethics and allows visitors to anonymously confess the most unethical things they have ever done in business. readers rate the confessions on a scale of one to ten (from always acceptable to never acceptable).

You would think that there would be terrible things being confessed, but most confessions are about stealing ideas, padding expense accounts, and hiring the competition or a friend. The worst was stealing from the YMCA. Seems a little tame compared to other ethics violations in the news. Or the actions of our elected officials, governmental entities and oil companies.

The confessions seem to be things that a lot of people have done. How else to explain that you'd have to be a mass murderer before the consensus was that you were acting unethically.

We're not looking for crimes. We're looking for things that a lot of people can relate to and that will, long term, show some type of pattern about what is and is not considered acceptable in business.

I'm with you. When CPA firms are using dual bookkeeping and honest Americans are cheated out of their pensions, I would think ethics have basically gone out the window with everything else.

Thanks for the comment and good luck with your blog.
