Book Review Abstract

Daniel Markovits of Yale Law School reviews "Blind Spots: Why We Fail to Do What's Right and What to Do about It" by Max H. Bazerman and Ann E. Tenbrunsel. The EconLit Abstract of the reviewed work begins "Examines the gap between how ethical we think we are and how ethical we truly are and the ethical blind spots that perpetuate these beliefs. Discusses the gap between intended and actual ethical behavior; whether traditional approaches to ethics will save you; when we act against our own ethical values; whether we are as ethical as we think we are; when we ignore unethical behavior; placing false hope in the "ethical organization"; why we fail to fix our corrupted institutions; and narrowing the gap--interventions for improving ethical behavior. Bazerman is Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. Tenbrunsel is Rex and Alice A. Martin Professor of Business Ethics in the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. Index."
