Business Ethics

The indictments brought against Samuel D. Waksal of ImClone for insider trading and other charges raise the question of what kind of ethics are driving some of America's top executives. Host Liane Hansen talks with Joseph Badaracco, who teaches business ethics at the Harvard Business School. He discusses some of the traits found in people under stress and how he uses examples from literature of how people perform when confronted with a crisis.
