Thought for today.

Ethics in business.

Product honesty

If you came into my shop to buy a table lamp and asked which is the best one, and I told you the shop next door has the best lamp, then I wouldn’t be in business very long. As a businessman, I cannot afford to be ethical in business if I, and my staff, want to feed our families.

There must be another way.

The job market.

As a businessman, I can only afford to hire people in jobs that haven’t yet been mechanised. Once your job is mechanised, if I don’t get rid of you, the business next door would drive me into the ground. Then I, and all my staff, loses the ability of feeding their families.

There must be another way.
