God-Washing Davos « The Business Ethics Blog
Asking religious leaders to help on business ethics? That's scary. Would you ask the Catholic church to consult on child day care? American Evangelicals to help teach your kids science? Israeli Jews about fair treatment of minorities? Consult with Muslim Fundamentalists about the treatment of women? Generally, religion and ethics mix like oil and water.
It sounds like a dog and pony show for the world's masses, an attempt to show that their leaders really care about ethical behavior.
