There are five basic tenets that underlie the need for a forum to discuss the application of religious ethics to the economy and the practices of businesses within the economy:

  • Capitalism is extending its reach to all corners of the globe and its scope and influence are changing the ways people conceive of their ethical responsibilities.
  • As a result of globalization, new synergies have emerged between formerly independently developing economies and markets, triggering new modes of behavior that challenge traditional notions of right and wrong.
  • New and intriguing ethical ideas and moral systems have appeared in many religious traditions that can be applied in helpful ways to business and the economy.
  • Recent developments in corporate and economic life call for new policies and ethical responses.
  • In response to said developments, novel academic and governance debates are emerging. These debates have local, regional and global dimensions and lack an appropriate forum.
