He says that business scandals involving various companies have increased one's awareness of the importance of ethics in business and the harm that can occur when executives fail to take ethics seriously. He says that the Internet has created an opportunity for new kinds of unethical behavior, from downloading copyrighted music to greatly misrepresenting oneself in personal ads. He adds that he doesn't believe that society is more corrupt today.
