The book begins by covering business ethics basics, highlighting how ethics are good for business. Ruddell then analyses the Scriptural teaching about business ethics as a model for how faith can (and indeed must) integrate with business ethics and then contrasts with other, secular, views of business ethics.
He continues by reviewing steps for solving ethical problems in business and how to set up and carry out an effective ethics program inside the business and how companies can extend those ethics to those around them through effective social outreach programs, and to the environment by being good stewards of our resources.
Much of what we know about corporate finance and mathematical finance derives from a narrow subset of firms: publicly traded corporations. The value functional approach can be readily applied to both large firms and companies that do not issue publicly traded stocks and bonds, cannot borrow without constraints, and often rely upon entrepreneurs to both finance and manage their operations. With historical side notes from an international set of sources and real-world exemplars that run throughout the text, this book is a future-facing resource for scholars in economics and finance, as well as the academically minded valuation practitioner.
Money Matters isn't just for those in need of financial Rx. It's an ideal resource for anyone desiring to align finances with Biblical principles.
