Large Tomes and Large Introductions

Standard

The main textbook for my Communication Ethics class is a 400+-page book with small print titled “Organizational Ethics: A Practical Approach” by Craig E. Johnson. And those 400 pages doesn’t include the 30+ pages of brief contents, contents, and introduction.

In the introduction I ran across this choice sentence:  “We all pay a high price for unethical organizational behavior: … increased regulation” This is something I know well. Working in the banking industry, while my institution was not involved in any of the scandals of the 2008 meltdown, or any of the bonus or other scandals before and after, because of other banks’ actions, we are required to spend countless hours doing paperwork to meet new regulations, hours that prevent us from actually doing the business of servicing our clients.
