    Innovative Stakeholder Relations: When “Ethics Pays” (and When it Doesn’t).Troy R. Harting, Susan S. Harmeling & S. Venkataraman - 2006 - Business Ethics Quarterly 16 (1):43-68.

We analyze real-life narratives and show how entrepreneurship and ethics emerge from our discussion as parallel streams of thought.
