Luis Figueroa has a conversation with Stephen Hicks about the role of business ethics in all kinds of corporations, big and small. They discuss how productive institutions have been, in some way, forced to give more to society than what they already do, without receiving anything in return. Hicks explains the outcome of these practices and centers on the impact they have in businesses, regarding their productive and value creation process. Finally, he recommends literature resources to students who wish to learn about the ideas of business ethics.
