Although the question of ethics in public life has existed from the earliest times of human existence, it has achieved increased prominence because of globalization. The annual data on corruption published by Transparency International and other agencies made it available for the concerned citizens about their country’s status on the corruption index. The countries of the world, especially the developing countries, can no longer keep the lid on corruption. Although many developing countries try to ignore their status on corruption, their governments now know that they are being watched by the people of the world and may be under pressure to take action. Khan analyzes the major theories regarding ethics and investigates the current issues of privacy, organizational politics, justice, fairness, contracting, ethical climate, corruption and violence, and global ethics. The chapter also contains a statistical analysis of corruption and globalization and shows the link between the two phenomena.
