Thinking About Business in Moral and Legal Terms

Thinking About Business in Moral and Legal Terms

Steven F. Goldstone, Chairman and CEO of RJR Nabisco (one of four biggest U.S. cigarette manufacturers), said in a magazine interview, “I have no moral view of this business. . . I viewed it as a legal business. You shouldn’t be drawing a moral judgment about a business our country says is perfectly legal and is taxed like crazy by it.” (Might need to be sourced.) Think about Goldstone’s statement in terms of moral awareness.
