As we look to define best practices, merchants to partner with etc.. I thought I might look up some quotes on business and ethics.

Just some food for thought...

Sound Business Practices:

Business ethics cross many subject areas and are based on broad principles of integrity and fairness regarding issues such as accounting practices, product quality, customer satisfaction, employee wages and benefits, etc. If you could sum Principles/Ethics up in one other word it would be Integrity.

Principles of Professional Ethics

Individuals acting in a professional capacity take on an additional burden of ethical responsibility. Written codes provide rules of conduct and standards of behavior based on the principles of Professional Ethics, which include:

Impartiality; objectivity
Openness; full disclosure
Due diligence / duty of care
Fidelity to professional responsibilities
Avoiding potential or apparent conflict of interest

peacefully and consciously speaking


If you understand, things are just as they are...
if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
