Teaching Corporate Ethics

Kara Swisher, writing in the NYT, ponders whether ethics officers for tech companies could make them better citizens.

Swisher ponders all the Saudi and Chinese money propping up tech stocks, but I have what I call a market based theory.

I say send a CEO or three to the slammer. The others are mostly pretty bright - I bet they will get the hint. I'll guess three to six months would serve to clarify many a mind.

After Britain suffered a major defeat in one of its wars, it hanged an admiral. I believe it was Pepys who noted that it did serve to get the attention of the other admirals.
