BATG as Ethical Case Study
Posted by Usha Rodrigues

Our second Business Ethics Seminar meeting focused on my favorite business read: Barbarians at the Gate, by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar. It reads like a novel, and it's the best way I've found to introduce students to deals.  This class was the first time I'd read it from an ethical perspective, and I was curious as to what I'd find.

Wow.  Captive boards. Corporate jets. Leaks to the press.  Advisors with their own agendas.  Backroom deals. LBOs: good or bad? Greed, greed, greed.

We're only halfway through the book, and we've got quite a surprise planned for the next class...
