The #1 text on the market, BUSINESS ETHICS: CASE STUDIES AND SELECTED READINGS, 6th Edition adeptly approaches the difficult subject of ethics by getting behind the decision-making process of business leaders today -- from the most prominent players to everyday professionals. Professor Jennings demonstrates that business leaders often express an internal struggle about questionable decisions and behavior, but then sometimes choose the path that proves most costly for them and their companies. In this decision-making process, Jennings reveals what may have gotten in the way of what -- in hindsight -- would seem like a clear choice: Sometimes business leaders are exploring pure personal gumption; sometimes they ignore or miss the analysis of the long-term effects of their decisions; and sometimes they are giving in to pressures such as compensation, a tough boss, or a culture that does not support dissent. Through real-world examples, Jennings helps students dissect what makes people cross lines they would not ordinarily cross. A combination of short and long cases, readings, hypothetical situations, and current ethical dilemmas, BUSINESS ETHICS provides a thorough training and thought-provoking experience on business ethics. Applying theory to real-world practice, it reinforces a vital sense of values in future business leaders.

Futuro imperfecto describe y discute una variedad de revoluciones tecnológicas que podrían suceder durante las próximas décadas, sus implicaciones y cómo encararlas. Los temas van desde la encriptación y vigilancia hasta el alargamiento de la vida, las drogas mentales, realidad virtual e inteligencia artificial, pasando por la biotecnología y la nanotecnología. Una temática del libro es que el futuro es radicalmente incierto. Los cambios tecnológicos ya empezados podrían llevar a más o menos privacidad de la que jamás hemos conocido; libertad o esclavitud; inmortalidad real o la eliminación de nuestra especie; cambios radicales en la vida, matrimonio, ley, medicina, trabajo y juego. No sabemos qué futuro será el que llegue, pero es improbable que se parezca mucho al pasado. Merece la pena comenzar a pensar en ello ahora.
