Abstract

The first two sections of this volume have treated business and professional ethics more or less independently of one another. However, for an increasing number of professionals there can be no firm line dividing the ethical problems of business and the professions, simply because more and more professionals are employed by corporations. This is obvious enough when we consider professional managers, accountants, data systems analysts, and marketing specialists. But even traditionally self-employed professionals such as engineers (the vast majority of whom now work within corporations, and many of whom move into managerial positions), lawyers, and medical professionals are increasingly in the employ of large businesses.
