Abstract

Why do you go to work each day? Is it because your job provides you the opportunity to be creative and to grow? Or is it because you would be lost to figure out what to do with yourself if you took your hand from the plow? Work used to be about surviving, but now, the struggle for existence has effectively ended. This article uses three recent books-- The Virtue of Prosperity by Dinesh D''Souza, The Elephant and the Flea by Charles Handy, and The Future of Success by Robert Reich--to examine the moral issues raised for both individuals and companies as the result of unprecedented economic success.
