Marketing Ethics

Description:    Marketing Ethics addresses head-on the ethical questions, misunderstandings and challenges that
                marketing raises while defining marketing as a moral activity.

                -A substantial introduction to the ethics of marketing, exploring the integral relations of marketing
                and morality

                -Identifies and discusses a series of ethical tools and the marketing framework they constitute that
                are required for moral marketing

                -Considers broader meanings and background assumptions of marketing infrequently included in
                other marketing literature

                -Adds direction and meaning to problems in marketing ethics through reflection on concepts such
                as individual choice, freedom and responsibility, desire satisfaction, noncoercive exchanges, and
                instrumental efficiency
