Business and ethics in the modern world

Temptations abound

Slippery slopes all around

Hard to know sometimes what you do

Is above bar, completely ethical too

In a world where lines get increasingly blurred

New money-generating ways get unfurled

In a gig economy, there are creative ways

To sell stuff, ideas, entertainment these days

The old-fashioned ways of drawing a fixed income

By working for a company have become

Somewhat antiquated as exciting opportunities appear

The internet-fed generation is embracing this market without fear…

*

Rules in this new era at times seem fluid to me

What appears completely legitimate could be

Frowned upon by some as flirting with unethical territory

Should you disregard such doubts or should you worry?

*

My take is that one should objectively interrogate

One’s motivation behind the action they contemplate

If there’s a nagging feeling that something’s not right

It’s probably not going to be worth the fight

The best judge when rules are nebulous

Is our own inner conscience that nudges us

To choose the right path, rise above our greed

Make the best, most ethical decisions indeed
