    Obstacles to ethical decision-making: mental models, Milgram and the problem of obedience.Patricia Hogue Werhane - 2013 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    In commerce, many moral failures are due to narrow mindsets that preclude taking into account the moral dimensions of a decision or action. In turn, sometimes these mindsets are caused by failing to question managerial decisions from a moral point of view, because of a perceived authority of management.
