Redet Geld, Schweigt Die Welt (When Money Talks the World Stays Silent)
“We need to learn, that in all aspects of this world, and therefore also in business, only those who know ethical values will have long lasting success.”
In this exploration of the ethics of the business world, Ulrich Wickert examines the part greed plays in persuading people to lie, betray, and dupe others, and how this might have led to the greatest financial crisis since the Second World War. With startling yet amusing examples the author explains why it is necessary and important for everyone, from the man in the street to the banking CEOs, to regain their moral values in every aspect of business, and shows how this might be achieved.
Wry, knowledgeable and full of drive Wickert describes the crisis and shows a path into the future.
“We need to revaluate our values: decency, sincerity, helpfulness and solidarity are the cornerstones of our coexistence with others.”
