Abstract Everybody has a different set of values and ethics. How do our values come about? Religion, geography, and society are just of few of the elements that shape our values and ethics. This paper discusses and takes a look at differences in ethics, how those differences came about, and what effect those differences have in business and economics. By comparing and contrasting the cultures of the United States, Russia, and North Korea, this paper provides a look at countries on the opposite ends of the spectrum, The U.S. and N. Korea, while Russia resides somewhere in the middle.

Differences Between the U.S., Russia, and N. Korea3 Introduction What do you consider ethical? What are your values? These two simple questions have an unlimited amount of answers. Why? Because depending on where you live, what your religion is, how you were raised, or any number of other factors, your set of ethics and values will be different from those of anyone else’s. While it would certainly be much easier if everyone adhered to the same set of ethics and values, unfortunately that isn’t very realistic. These differences can often lead to misunderstanding and dilemmas when conducting business in an unfamiliar area of the world. Differences In Social Culture United States The United States is a country that due to a large amount of freedom encompasses groups of people that speak many different languages, have varying levels of education, and differ widely in political and economic philosophies (Hill, 2011). This makes for a culture that allows for individualistic achievements and attitudes. Americans are encouraged to be successful and are allowed the opportunities to become just that. Russia At the heart of Russian culture is the notion that the country is greater than the individual ("Russian culture,"). Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, along with the freedoms of democracy, Russia has begun to adapt and change into a much more westernized culture that allows for individualization. It will be interesting to watch the progress of the culture in the years to come.
