Going Beneath the Surface of Today's Corporate Scandals

By Robert Rabinowitz

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 27, 2002

The author draws connections between Bernard Lieter's "The Future of Money," and Marjorie Kelly's "The Divine Right of Capital," to analyze the norms of Jewish business ethics. He places an emphasis on Lieter's assertion that there is a dangerous reliance on currency, and that individuals should come up with their own alternative currency. Futhermore, the author sheds light on Kelly's analogy that employees in the corporate world today are the peasants to the shareholders (the aristocrats). The author then analyzes how the ethical issues posed by Lieter's and Kelly's books work in conjunction with Jewish business ethics.
