What Is Ethics?
What is Ethics? A boy came home from school one afternoon and announced that his teacher wanted everyone in the class to write an essay on ethics. "What is 'ethics', dad?" he asked. The father thought for a moment, then replied, "You know that your Uncle Murray and I own a clothing store, right?" The son nodded, and the father continued. "Well, suppose Uncle Murray goes out for lunch and, while he is out, a man comes into the store and buys a sports jacket for fifty dollars. After the man leaves, I realize that there are actually two fifty-dollar bills stuck together. Ethics would be, should I split the extra fifty with your Uncle Murray?" It's a funny story, but for today's municipal leaders, ethics is no laughing matter. Whether politicians or employees, they are all held personally accountable for what they do and the things they say about their organizations. Today, as never before, we can all expect to be held to a higher standard of professional ethics. What ethical principles guide you?
