‘‘’’ETHICS AND ACTIONEthics is about putting principles into action. Consistency between what we say we value and what our actions say we value is a matter of integrity.It is also about self-restraint: • Not doing what you have the power to do. An act isn’t proper simply becauseit is permissible or you can get away with it. • Not doing what you have the right to do. There is a big difference betweenwhat you have the right to do and what is right to do. • Not doing what you want to do. In the well-worn turn of phrase, an ethical personoften chooses to do more than the law requires and less than the law allows.From the Josephson Institute of Ethics website BESTBUYCODEOFBUSINESSETHICS|PAGE1
