Ethics slobs

The various investigations into President Trump and members of his administration and others has focused attention on an  age-old debate: whether careless wrongdoing is as reprehensible as is  the intentional sort.

The answer is Yes.

I  do not have data on this.  But I do have  the wise observation of   Samuel Johnson who once said:It is more from carelessness about truth than from intentionally lying that there is so much falsehood in the world.”

And as the economy becomes more complex  the need to fully  address negligence will in all likelihood become even greater.

Some companies do a good job in educating managers on the need for carefulness on C&E matters, but many others could  and should do more.. The same is true of governmental bodies.

Lots of low hanging fruit for use by C&E professionals.
