Stopping Big Business and Politics from Bleeding America: An Agenda for the New Generation
A Virginia business professor says that the Wall Street protests are a symbol of a new agenda for an ethics-focused generation.
"Today's college students are aware that they will soon be the managers of both our corporations and our politics, and they are worried about what part ethics will play," says Fernando Pargas, a management professor at James Madison University.
Pargas declares that educators must stop pretending that there isn't a corrupt alliance of business and politics. "We must teach our students how to run organizations that are free at last from the stench of deceit and greed," he says.
The money of the one and the power of the other make for an unstoppable force, he argues. Supporting that force, maintains Pargas, is their propaganda machine which forces an uninformed and malleable public to follow them in what he calls "hypnotic obedience."
