Socrates Comes to Wall Street (Paperback)Thomas I. White (author)
- We can order this
A fresh approach to the assumptions that underlie business practices
Two recent events - the 2008 economic meltdown and the ongoing concentration of the nation's wealth in the hands of a very small percentage of the population - have led many people to question a number of basic assumptions about business, corporations, and the workings of contemporary free-market capitalism in a global economy. Written as a dialogue between Socrates and a hypothetical contemporary CEO, Socrates Comes to Wall Street leads students to think critically about perspectives and practices that are taken as "givens" in most American business schools and corporations. Employing this original and provocative approach, author Thomas White seeks to encourage the next generation of business leaders to be more astute about the implications of their actions, and to act more prudently and more fairly than we have seen in the recent past.

Reviews for White, Socrates Comes to Wall Street, 1e:
"I'm currently using it in three sections of my Business Ethics class and my students love it. They have been telling me they are reading ahead because they enjoy it so much! I definitely haven't heard that reaction to a text before. Great book - I'm really enjoying teaching with it." - Dr. Jessica Gosnell, St. Ambrose University
