Show synopsis Within a professional setting such as a business or and educational institution people make decisions about what level of attention and care they give to the tasks at hand, what they produce and how they produce it (whether it is a wool coat or a research paper), and how they present their work to others. If we never had to deal with people, we would not have any reason to worry about ethics. This is a book about the relationships between functions in the textiles, apparel, and retailing complex and the people who make those functions happen. The human element is explored in terms of decisions making processes leading to outcomes that have ethical implications. Paulins and Hillery hope to empower students who will soon become professionals in this industry to make good decisions because they are informed about the industry, aware of controversial issues within the industry, in touch with their own ethical constructs and aware of potential consequences or benefits of their actions as they work through the decision-making process.
