Resumen: El emprendimiento se está estudiando cada vez más como un fenómeno económico fundamental y fundacional. Sin embargo, ha recibido menos atención como fenómeno ético. Gran parte de la ética empresarial contemporánea asume que sus propósitos centrales en el campo de aplicación consisten en (1) detener las prácticas depredadorasen los negocios y (2) fomentar la filantropía y la caridad por medio de las empresas. Ciertamente la depredación es inmoral y la caridad encuentra su lugar en la ética, pero ninguna de las dos cosas debe ser su primera preocupación. En cambio, la ética empresarial debería fundamentarse en los valores y las virtudes de los emprendedores, es decir, esos individuos productivos y responsables por sí mismos que crean valor e intercambian con otras personas para mutuo beneficio, ganar/ganar.

What business ethics can learn from entrepreneurship

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

apee-100x177CEE’s Stephen Hicks’s essay on “What Business Ethics Can Learn from Entrepreneurship” [pdf] was published in the Spring 2009 issue of the Journal of Private Enterprise, edited by Edward Peter Stringham.

The abstract:

“Entrepreneurship is increasingly studied as a fundamental and foundational economic phenomenon. It has, however, received less attention as an ethical phenomenon. Much contemporary business ethics assumes its core application purposes to be (1) to stop predatory business practices and (2) to encourage philanthropy and charity by business. Certainly predation is immoral and charity has a place in ethics, but neither should be the first concerns of ethics. Instead, business ethics should make fundamental the values and virtues of entrepreneurs — i.e., those self-responsible and productive individuals who create value and trade with others to win-win advantage.”
