Top Risks and Ethical Decisions 2010

Workshop for Ethics in Business Lunch

Sponsored by Policy Innovations
A Publication of the Carnegie Council

This panel showcased prominent experts and their predictions about the ethical implications of global political risk for 2010. Aimed at decision makers in corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors, the panel provided a stimulating preface to the critical global political, social, and economic shifts for the year ahead. Using Eurasia Group's Top Risks as a starting point for identifying the major global challenges in 2010, the discussion examined the ethical aspects of each issue, and how best these dynamic and complex challenges can be met.
