Simulating Ethics

from the it's-fun-to-be-bad dept

We were just talking about how companies are trying to make money offering all different kinds of “on the job” simulations from teaching to running a local government. Now, it seems, there’s even a market for letting executives practice moral behavior by simulating ethical dilemmas for them to work out. Of course, I wonder how useful this one is. I think many executives knew what they were doing was wrong, but did it anyway, because the incentives were there (and the risk of getting caught seemed very low). In a simulation about ethical dilemmas, everyone is going to know which answers they’re supposed to give.
