It is valuable reading for anyone interested narrowly in business ethics, but also more broadly in political philosophy or the intersection of politics, philosophy, and economics. There is also an outstanding bibliography Highly recommended.

Vaak samen gekocht. In a sharp break with traditional approaches to business ethics, Heath argues that the basic principles of corporate social responsibility are already implicit in the institutional norms that structure both marketplace competition and the modern business corporation. In four new and nine previously published essays, Heath articulates the foundations of a "market failures" approach to business ethics.
Rather than bringing moral concerns to bear upon economic activity as a set of foreign or externally imposed constraints, this approach seeks to articulate a robust conception of business ethics derived solely from the basic normative justification for capitalism. The result is a unified theory of business ethics, corporate law, economic regulation, and the welfare state, which offers a reconstruction of the central normative preoccupations in each area that is consistent across all four domains.
This is the visible fist of government. But market and government regulation are not enough to make the system work well; we need morality as well. For Heath, competing market agents are not themselves supposed to aim for Pareto-optimal results. In the same way, the point of staging a baseball competition is to have fun, but players on the field are not bound by a rule of trying to maximize the fun.
Instead, fun results from the players following properly designed rules Rawls Could not agree more.
It was only after I discovered the Heath program that I became comfortable teaching the subject. The best game in town by a wide, wide margin. We are all even the poorest of us vastly better off with markets than without them, but for markets to make us much better off, we cannot require competing businesses to treat each other the way we expect family members to treat each other. Is that reasonable or even true?
