Philosophical Approaches to Ethics
The Friedman Doctrine:
Company¶s only responsibility is to increase its profits. Friedman argued that a company should
have no ³social responsibility´ to the public or society because its only concern is to increase
profits for itself and for its shareholders.
Cultural relativism is the principle that an individual human¶s beliefs and activities should be
understood in terms of his or her own culture.
A righteous moralist claims that a multinational¶s home-country standards of ethics are the
appropriate ones for companies to follow in foreign countries.
A naive immoralist asserts that if a manager of a multinational sees that firms from other
nations are not following ethical norms in a host nation, that manager should not either.
