    Ethical Behavior in Business: A Hierarchical Approach From the Talmud. [REVIEW]Hershey H. Friedman - 1985 - Journal of Business Ethics 4 (2):117 - 129.
    The Talmud, the compilation of Jewish oral law, is over 1500 years old and includes extensive discussions of business ethics. This paper presents four levels of ethical behavior in business gleaned from the words of the Talmud. At the lowest level, an individual is just barely inside the law; the highest level is the way of the pious. The author has attempted to relate the ethics in ancient business situations to business practices today.

    Tone-at-the-Top Lessons From Abrahamic Justice.Hershey Friedman & Dov Fischer - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 156 (1):209-225.
    Abraham’s “leadership by example” provides a template for business leaders to implement a tone at the top based on a balance of tzedek and mishpat. The former expresses the generosity of spirit required of leaders, while the latter expresses the sound judgement in conformity with both ethics and enacted law. We relate the two constructs to several contemporary theories of justice and jurisprudence. We also relate the development of Abrahamic Justice in the Jewish tradition from antiquity through Maimonides in the (...)

    Family Business in the #MeToo Era: Lessons from Ruth on Tone at the Top.Dov Fischer & Hershey Friedman - 2021 - Humanistic Management Journal 6 (1):37-55.
    In the biblical Book of Ruth, Boaz instructs his workers not to molest Ruth. We draw insights on the problem of workplace sexual harassment in the family-firm setting from the Book of Ruth. We then integrate these insights with several discrete findings in the literatures on workplace sexual harassment and family firms: First, family firms are relatively strong when it comes to a culture of fairness and respect. Second, family firms sometimes lack formal codes of ethics, which could hamper integrity. (...)

    Conflict of Interest and the Talmud.Joshua Fogel & Hershey H. Friedman - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 78 (1-2):237-246.
    A core value of Judaism is leading an ethical life. The Talmud, an authoritative source on Jewish law and tradition, has a number of discussions that deal with honesty in business and decision-making. One motive that can cause individuals to be unscrupulous is the presence of a conflict of interest. This paper will define, discuss, and review five Talmudic concepts relevant to conflict of interest. They are (1) Nogea B’Davar (being an interested party), (2) V’hiyitem N’keyim (behaving to ensure that (...)

    Perceived Common Myths and Unethical Practices Among Direct Marketing Professionals.Gordon Storholm & Hershey Friedman - 1989 - Journal of Business Ethics 8 (12):975 - 979.
    Two arcas of continuing interest to direct marketing professionals are the perceived myths and unethical practices in the field. Documentation of specific cases and more abstract discussion of these two points of interest frequently appear in the direct marketing literature (e.g. Gitlitz and Barton, 1983; Lewis, 1982; Pierce, 1985). Indeed, the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) has promulgated specific guidelines (DMA, 1985) for ethical business practices within the industry. Up to this point, however, there has been no attempt at a systematic (...)

    A Framework for Organizational Success.Hershey H. Friedman & Linda Weiser Friedman - 1988 - Journal of Business Ethics 7 (3):219 - 221.
    The contention of this paper is that the marketing concept is but one aspect of a philosophy of business referred to by the authors as the framework for organizational success. This framework maintains that the marketing concept must work together with good management approaches and with ethical business practices in order to satisfy the needs and wants of the various publics of the organization — customers, employees, suppliers, society — and, in the long run, ensure the satisfaction of the needs (...)

  7. Student Perceptions of the Ethics of Professors.Hershey Friedman, Joshua Fogel & Linda Friedman - 2005 - Electronic Journal of Business Ethics and Organization Studies 10 (2):10-15.
    Ethical violations are becoming common in the business world. Teaching proper ethical behavior can begin in college. In this study, we surveyed 350 students to determine what affects students’ perceptions of the ethics of professors and to determine whether or not taking a course in ethics changes this perception. The most important factor in determining whether or not a professor is ethical is “fairness in grading.” Surprisingly, there was no statistically significant difference between students who took a course in ethics (...)

    What’s So Funny About Arguing with God? A Case for Playful Argumentation From Jewish Literature.Don Waisanen, Hershey H. Friedman & Linda Weiser Friedman - 2015 - Argumentation 29 (1):57-80.
    In this paper, we show that God is portrayed in the Hebrew Bible and in the Rabbinic literature—some of the very Hebrew texts that have influenced the three major world religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—as One who can be argued with and even changes his mind. Contrary to fundamentalist positions, in the Hebrew Bible and other Jewish texts God is omniscient but enjoys good, playful argumentation, broadening the possibilities for reasoning and reasonability. Arguing with God has also had a (...)
