  • Work-Life Expectations of Christian Millennials

    • Authors: Jenny R. Main et al.
      Abstract: As more and more Millennials reject a religious label, we are curious as to whether those who have faith are somehow different, not only in their spiritual lives but in their work lives as well. This study analyzes the supposedly declining work ethic of Millennials and aims to determine if Christian Millennials differ from their peers. We found a significant difference in the work values and work ethic scores between Christians and non-Christians. These results seem to support the idea that religion has a noticeable influence on individual work ethic.

  • Acedia and the Economy: The Proper Work of Wayfarers

    • Authors: Jim Wishloff Dr.
      Abstract: An exploration of acedia, a capital vice opposed to the theological virtue of charity, in contemporary commercial society is undertaken. Saint Thomas Aquinas’ understanding of acedia is retrieved and the cultural implications of acedia’s deep entrenchment in our lives are drawn out. Business actions brought about by acedia are assessed from an ethical perspective. The study concludes by looking at how charity ought to inform the work people are called to do.

  • Catholic Social Thought in Catholic Business Schools in the U.S. Today: A
           Survey and Conclusions

    • Authors: Andrew B. Gustafson et al.
      Abstract: When it comes to religion and business ethics, Catholic Schools have a uniquely important position in that they are institutions generally founded in support of religious values which in turn supposedly impact the content and method of teaching of business (and business ethics). Catholic business schools claim to have a distinctiveness which gives them an advantage over non-Catholic business schools (Spitzer, 2010; Lowney, 2012). It is clear that Catholic schools are better than their peers at providing business ethics education in their curriculum. But it also appears that many Catholic business schools and departments consider their business ethics education one of the most important Catholic distinctives. However, merely having a business ethics class is not enough to distinguish one from a secular business school. This paper is primarily a presentation of the findings of our research survey on Catholic Social Teaching in Catholic business schools completed in the Fall of 2014. We proposed to collect data from 50 Catholic colleges and Universities using a series of 30 questions. Our study shows that there are some distinctive programs and methods by which Catholic Business Schools are integrating faith with business, but for many of these schools, the following traits seemed to be characteristic:
      Business Ethics classes were considered to be the key location of any Catholic Social Teaching in the business school
      Many Catholic business schools assume that the Catholic identity is taught through core non-business classes.
      At most of the schools, a very small minority of faculty were considered capable of speaking about Catholic Social Thought.
      In terms of self-perception of how their institution was improving their distinctive Catholic identity, nearly 2/3 of the schools thought they were improving, and about 2/3 thought they were doing better than other Catholic Business Schools.
      Generally, uniquely Catholic mission goals for education like “Change Unity of Heart, Mind and Soul” or “Care for the individual person” scored more poorly than “Producing employable graduates” or “Cultivating innovative problem-solvers” While Catholic Business Schools do much better than their peers at requiring business ethics classes, by and large it seems that the Catholic identity of many of these business schools is in many cases maintained and promoted primarily by requiring business ethics classes.

  • The Moderating Effect of Religiosity on the Relation Between Moral
           Intensity and Moral Awareness

    • Authors: Randi L. Sims et al.
      Abstract: The study investigated the importance of religiosity in the moral decision making process. Using social cognition theory as a basis, we proposed that greater religiosity would be expected to influence the vividness, salience, and accessibility of the moral content in a situation, both from a focus on social norms, and in the sensitivity towards negative outcomes impacting others. We used a random block, mixed quasi-experimental design, with both within-subjects and between-subjects components. Moral intensity was manipulated in high and low harm conditions for four ethical scenarios presented. Completed surveys were returned by 372 adult respondents (average age = 47). Findings indicate that intrinsic religiosity moderated the relation between moral intensity and moral awareness, such that those who are more intrinsically religious were found to have higher levels of moral awareness at lower levels of moral intensity. Individuals with low reported levels of intrinsic religiosity were less likely to recognize the moral component of a low harm situation. Extrinsic religiosity was not found to be a significant moral agent characteristic when considering the relation between harm to others and moral awareness. The results of this study add to the understanding of how characteristics of the moral issue interact with characteristics of the moral agent to impact moral awareness.

  • A Postmodernist Theologian's Critique of Capitalism

    • Authors: Clive Beed et al.
      Abstract: Radically Orthodox theologians believe they are developing an operative Christian economics qualitatively different from the economics with which Christian economists are familiar. Some use postmodernist concepts, relating to desire and power. This paper evaluates a leading exponent of this thesis, Daniel Bell Jr., in his 2012 Economy of Desire, a book so far overlooked in Christian economics discussion. This paper contends that Bell does not take the case for an alternative Christian economics further than where earlier Christian economists had reached, that postmodernist concepts do not illuminate the issues, and that his critique of capitalism does not lead to clear-cut alternatives. The case here is that capitalism is in process of being reformed incrementally on the road to the alternative or divine economy — the mustard seed notion. In the last section, instances are given of how this is being achieved.

  • Privacy Ethics in Biblical Literature

    • Authors: Benjamin Glass et al.
      Abstract: This paper combines modern legal scholars' and biblical literature's treatment of a right to privacy. Beginning with a reassessment of Warren & Brandeis' "right to be let alone" as the first legal treatment of a right to privacy, the authors explore the right to privacy’s roots in ancient ethical standards. This is done via a study of privacy as it is treated in biblical literature. What emerge are two themes that are central to ethical decision-making with regard to privacy. The first is that breaches of privacy are irreversible, an idea that is informative as to why privacy is valued so highly. The second addresses the decision dilemmas that arise when privacy and its underlying values conflict with other rights and values. These dilemmas confront business executives, technology developers and engineers, government agents, press and media managers, and others who need to decide how to protect privacy in situations not yet covered by existing privacy laws. These front-line decision makers must make judgments based on pre-existing ethical precepts and traditions because often privacy laws lag behind the problems they are written to address.

  • Religious Ethics and Socially Responsible Behaviors of Small Firms in
           Nepal

    • Authors: Binod Krishna Shrestha
      Abstract: Exploration on moral or ethical managerial behavior has become imperative to generate discussion on solving social and economic problems of the society while encouraging business people to make profit from their businesses. This study explored the extent of fulfillment of responsibilities as prescribed by religious values in the consumptions, business practices and uses of wealth using Hindu’s and Buddhist's principles of business ethics by small firm owners. The research began with review of literature on Hindu (Vedic) and Buddhist principles. A survey on 300 respondents found that owners of small firms have positive attitude towards pursuing the religious principles of modest consumptions and religiously accepted business practices. However, they were found to be inclined to crave for wealth maximization especially when they grow larger through promoting materialistic values on customers. They use their wealth to nurture self and their family, but give fewer priorities in contributing to employee welfare and environment conservation. This research has managerial implications on promotion of business ethics and social responsibilities in Nepal.

  • The Intersection of Religiosity, Workplace Spirituality and Ethical
           Sensitivity in Practicing Accountants

    • Authors: Joshua Sauerwein
      Abstract: A broad range of ethical decisions cross the desk of practicing accountants everyday. Rest and Narvaez (1994) theorized that ethical sensitivity is influenced by personal factors such as religion. Using Rest’s theory, this study found that workplace spirituality was positively related to ethical sensitivity and extrinsic religiosity was negatively related to ethical sensitivity. In additional analysis significant associations were found between the meaning an accountant ascribes to their job and ethical sensitivity. Significant differences in ethical sensitivity were also observed across the accountant’s role. The results of this study provide evidence that religion and spirituality are associated with ethical sensitivity in practicing accountants. While more research needs to be conducted in this important area, these results provide evidence that the profession should work towards fostering the intuitive links between ethical decision-making and the inner life of the accountant.

  • Greenwashing in Islamic Finance? An analysis of Islamic private banks’
           non-financial reports and a proposal for an “Islamic Reporting
           Initiative” standard

    • Authors: Stefan Leins et al.
      Abstract: Since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, Islamic finance has been subject to a number of intriguing debates. While evidence suggests that Islamic private banks got through the imponderabilities of the financial crisis more easily than conventional banks, Islamic finance has been criticized by some as incapable of performing the functions of modern banking. Moreover, there has been a debate among academics as well as among practitioners whether Islamic finance indeed represents a new faith-based form of banking or whether it represents just a conventional way of banking that is based on the use of religious terminology. Against this background, we examine to what extend the disclosed information of Islamic private banks meet the constitutive criteria of the Islamic normative foundations. Based on literature of Islamic thought we derived a coding scheme with 21 items and selected a sample of 18 Islamic private banks. We analyzed the content of the selected banks’ annual reports and benchmarked the disclosure performance against Islam-based requirements. The results show that, concerning the disclosed content, few banks fully adhere to the normative standards of Islamic thought on economics as described in theoretical books on Islamic finance. Addressing this gap between theory and practice, we discuss the possibility of what we suggest to call ‘greenwashing in Islamic finance’ as an ethical challenge. Elaborating on this, we discuss the prospect of introducing more transparent disclosure standards such as an Islamic Finance Reporting Initiative inspired by the key performance indicators system of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) for non-financial reporting.

  • Religion and Fairness in the Ultimatum Game: Examining Mennonite Beliefs
           and Actions

    • Authors: Chris D. Gingrich et al.
      Abstract: This study examines religion's impact on ultimatum game outcomes by focusing on Mennonite students, faculty, and staff at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in Virginia, USA. Despite doctrinal statements emphasizing community and material concern for the poor, Mennonite offers in the game are not statistically different from other Christian groups. However, there is some indication that the mean offer in this particular sample exceeds those in existing studies. One possible reason for the higher offers could be the EMU campus ethos that emphasizes social justice issues. Also, the higher offer values suggest increased altruism if Proposers correctly foresaw that Responders would reject very few low offers.

  • Sociological, psychological and historical perspectives on the reemergence
           of religion and spirituality within organizational life.

    • Authors: Timothy G. Ewest
      Abstract: The intent of this paper is to account for the most recent philosophical shift occurring within organizational life away from the modern philosophical preference towards secularization, and the corresponding focus on technical competence, as posited by Fordism, to a philosophical shift that inculcates endemic religious and spiritual beliefs. The impetus for this change can be best understood by using psychological and sociological paradigms including groups of individuals whose collective human agentic action (humans making choices as groups and imposing those choices on the world) and social movements theory as an attestation of the unwillingness of many to lead a bi-furcated life which ignores the endemic human emotions, religious beliefs and human values. The paper resolves by providing antidotal evidence within the marketplace of[A1] employees who collectively act as agents of a social movement integrating faith and work.

  • Are Faith-based, Long-term Care Nonprofit Organizations More Effective? A
           Survey Study of Nursing Homes in Virginia

    • Authors: Bulent Ucar
      Abstract: The role of religion in effectiveness of organizations has been part of serious debates among policy makers, practitioners and scholars after President George W. Bush's creation of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives in 2001.The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether being a faith affiliated nursing home influences performance. The secondary purpose is, regardless of ownership type - religiously affiliated or secular - to investigate if more religiously involved nursing homes perform better than their less religiously involved counterparts. Performance is measured based on criterion put in place by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).The statistical analyses found no substantial differences between performance of church affiliated nursing homes and secular nursing homes as well as more religiously involved nursing homes and less religiously involved nursing homes.

  • The Influence of Religion on Socially Responsible Investing

    • Authors: Monika Czerwonka
      Abstract: Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) is an alternative way to invest one’s assets. SRI, apart from financial returns, also considers the environmental, social or ethical aspects of an investment decision. Socially responsible investors are interested not only in maximizing their financial return in the long run, but also in taking into consideration other non-financial issues, that is, so-called ESG factors (Environment, Social and Governance).Most of the existing papers on SRI focus on financial performance. There is a need for more research on the conceptual and theoretical bases of such investing; in particular, the aspirations of SRI investors or motives that lead people to be socially responsible investors.The main goal of the current study was to explore the influence of religion on attitudes towards SRI.This study will first present existing theories about attitudes towards SRI, and discuss the influence of religion on investors’ behavior. Next the objectives, methodology and the results of a study conducted among investors in Poland will be presented. The final section will provide a discussion, including research implications and conclusions.

  • The Whole Greater than the Sum of its Parts: Being Whole in the Workplace

    • Authors: Cristine Margaret Atienza et al.
      Abstract: In a world where the benefit to the common good has been overshadowed by the need to spur consumer demand to increase profitability, one begins to wonder if business has turned a blind eye and if the workforce has grown so detached that who they are at work is different from who they are outside the workplace. While there are many challenges that a worker encounters inside and outside the workplace, it is the contention of this paper that it is possible to remain integral and not to disintegrate amidst so much pressures, provided organization is there to support such integrality. Consequently, this paper provides a framework that business leaders can consider so that they support the pursuit for happiness, purposefulness, and fulfillment of every worker in their organization.

  • Common Threads among Different Forms of Charismatic Leadership

    • Authors: Ylva Sandberg et al.
      Abstract: The following paper examines the role of charismatic leadership across religious, political, and business leadership in order to come to terms with charisma, what is often described as an intangible quality. The term itself is derived from a Greek term indicating divine favor, a notion that scholars have increasingly tried to move away from, or ignore, but from a systematic analysis of ways in which charisma manifests, the authors hope to bring the subject into a more defined relief.

In the US, a majority view is that held by conservative evangelicals who are ready to maintain capitalism as it is. Conversely, a minority position is put by the Radical Orthodoxy School, more inclined to socialism. Other positions also exist, for example, that neither capitalism nor socialism is compatible with Christianity. This paper tries to pick its way through these contentions, emphasizing the arguments of contemporary Christian supporters of capitalism. It focuses on three Christian qualities the capitalist advocates stress. Capitalism and socialism are briefly defined. Ways by which reform might be undertaken inside capitalism are explored, taking the US as example. Some of the reforms proposed in this paper are sometimes labelled “socialist,” but the definitions of socialism and capitalism suggest that the reforms can be accommodated inside a transformed capitalism.

  • "The Markets Have Decided”: Markets as (Perceived) Deity and Ethical
           Implications of Delegated Responsibility

    • Authors: Peter Seele et al.
      Abstract: The term ‘the markets’ appears as if the markets were divine authorities with their own dignity that decide, sanction and threaten like a godlike power. This extends the standard-economic definition of the market as an egalitarian transaction mechanism under the circumstances of scarcity and competition. We explore and review the historical and theoretical base of this observation. We then analyze quotations on ‘the markets’ from selected media outlets during the economic crisis in 2008. We suggest that referring to “the markets” represents a rhetorically deified, metaphysical entity implying severe moral implications, as certain agents claim to act on behalf of the market, thereby delegating personal responsibility for their actions.

  • Ethical Principles of Old Testament Economics: Implications for the
           Teaching of Business Ethics

    • Authors: Sigmund Wagner-Tsukamoto
      Abstract: The paper reviews ethical principles, including certain theological principles that have been drawn from the field of economic research on the Old Testament. It critically examines the type of lessons that can be learned from adherence to such principles for the teaching of business ethics, and how such principles can subsequently inform and be incorporated into management practises.In terms of ethical assessments, on the one hand the paper connects to the Judeo-Christian tradition, and to institutional and constitutional economics on the other. The paper reviews several stories from the Old Testament and extracts ethical principles on good management practice, in particular from the stories of Joseph and Solomon. These stories appear to be especially rich in terms of ethical principles for business activity. Also, certain deficits of Old Testament based economics as compared with a contemporary economic approach to business ethics have been highlighted.

  • Morality and Religion: Complementing or Complicating Corporate Governance

    • Authors: Abdul Karim Aldohni
      Abstract: The moral ethos of any business organisation has always had an impact on the governance of its conduct. In the wake of the financial crisis, there have been increased calls for improving the moral standards of business organisations, especially in the financial sector.In academic literature, the link between morality and religion has been widely discussed. Therefore, in the context of business governance, the influence of religious values has been the subject of a considerable amount of research. Most research in this respect has primarily focused on the positive impact of religious values on governance. However, a little attention has been paid to the negative effect that the manifestation of these values has equally brought.The paper explores the relation between morality, religious values and corporate governance. Although the paper aims to provide an informed perspective on how religious values impact on corporate governance in general, it pays special attention to the negative impact that religious values have on the governance structure of Islamic financial institutions, as an example of ethically oriented organisations.

  • Using the Bible in Christian Ethics

    • Authors: Clive Beed et al.
      Abstract: Various Christian ethicists commented on a disconnection of Christian ethics from the Bible in the 1960s and 70s. Although this tendency is thought to have been remedied, this paper argues otherwise. The distance and detachment of Christian ethics from the Bible continues. The contention is demonstrated from examining Christian ethics’ books published from 2001-2011, plus two influential works from the 90s — Hays, and Peschke. Their separation from the Bible is indicated by their selective analysis of the biblical text, by their ‘plain reading’ interpretation, by their placing more weight on Christian tradition than the Bible, by not relying on the biblical text for developing ethics, and by not showing how biblical ethical guidelines relate to modern life. Exceptions to these generalizations are noted. Suggestions based on the Pontifical Biblical Commission are offered for how these limitations might be addressed.
