The Everyday Ethics of Wealth

Issue #31
“The Everyday Ethics of Wealth”
December, 2002

We hear of ethical lapses at the highest levels of business and government. But what about us? This issue focuses on the everyday ethical decisions all of us face; in particular, on the ethical choices that people with wealth face by virtue of the fact that we have more choice than others. What are some of those choices? How can we make them? How do we choose when the choosing gets tough? Includes interviews with Bill Gates, Sr., Chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Dr. Rushworth Kidder, founder of the Institute for Global Ethics; Rev. Peter Gomes of Harvard University; Aaron Feuerstein, CEO of Malden Mills, and many others discussing ethical choices they have made with their money, including giving, spending, earning, investing, and passing on values to children.
