  1. Toward a Model of Cross-Cultural Business Ethics: The Impact of Individualism and Collectivism on the Ethical Decision-Making Process.Bryan W. Husted & David B. Allen - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 82 (2):293-305.
    In this paper, we explore the impact of individualism and collectivism on three basic aspects of ethical decision making - the perception of moral problems, moral reasoning, and behavior. We argue that the inclusion of business practices within the moral domain by the individual depends partly upon individualism and collectivism.

Finally, we argue that the link between moral judgment and behavior (...)

  3. Corporate Social Strategy in Multinational Enterprises: Antecedents and Value Creation.Bryan W. Husted & David B. Allen - 2007 - Journal of Business Ethics 74 (4):345-361.
    In this article, we examine the relationship of the multinational firm’s market environment, stakeholders, resources, and values to the development of strategic social planning and strategic social positioning. Using a sample of multinational enterprises in Mexico, we examine the relationship of these different ways of conducting social strategy to the creation of value by the firm.

    Making, Buying, or Collaborating for Corporate Social Responsibility.Bryan W. Husted, David B. Allen & Jorge Rivera - 2005 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 16:136-141.
    The decision to internalize corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, to outsource them in the form of corporate philanthropy, or to collaborate with otherorganizations is of great significance to the ability of the firm to reap benefits from such activity. Using insights provided by the new institutional economics and the resourcebased view of the firm, this paper describes how the variables of centrality and specificity affect CSR governance choice. This framework is tested using data collected from Central America and Mexico. Support (...)
