Business Ethics in Hong Kong: A Confucian Perspective and the Long-term Trend

Posted on:

The presentation comprises of three studies relating to the current state and the future of business ethics in Hong Kong. The first study discusses the conceptualization and operationalization of virtue business ethics from a Confucian perspective. A three-factor model of Confucian business ethics is proposed and validated with structural equation modeling. The second study describes the business ethics performance of seven industries in Hong Kong from both cross-sectional and longitudinal perspectives. The property industry consistently is seen as relatively less ethical, while the retail industry usually outperforms others. The third study predicts the long-term state of business ethics development in Hong Kong using dynamic distribution analysis. The future long run steady state distribution indicates an encouraging finding that business in Hong Kong will converge to a slightly positive, long-term steady state.
