  • Moral Degeneration in Contemporary Zimbabwean Business Practices 2 November 2011 18:40, author(s)-editor(s) Jesuino Mondlane

    Munyaradzi Mawere’s "Moral degeneration in contemporary Zimbabwean business practices" is a rich text that grapples with one of the major challenges in contemporary Zimbabwe. While Mawere acknowledges that it is difficult to be moral when doing business in an environment that is politically volatile and economically unstable, he instists that it is possible to do so. He goes a mile further to take the first step towards moral restitution by denouncing all immoral business practices that are going on in the contemporary Zimbabwean business world. Mawere’s "Moral degeneration...", thus, is indeed a well founded book that defends the highest standards of excellence and unwavering integrity in business. In addition, the book gives the reader a high sense of satisfaction as it is based on empirical findings and inspired by a wide reading and analysis in business and ethics texts.
