9780141042428: Good Value: Choosing a Better Life in Business

Stephen Green - current Chairman of HSBC and ordained priest - believes above all that our lives should be lived with integrity. And more than that: these beliefs should not be left at the boardroom door.

In Good Value, he argues that our businesses have a duty to society and explores how those of us who work in a profit-making workplace can combine our spiritual and ethical selves with our everyday work.

Examining money markets across the globe and through the ages in a fascinating study of history, politics, religion and economics, Stephen Green shows how financial progress shouldn't mean an end to ethics at work.
