Editorial Reviews

`The moral architecture of global capitalism is imperfect. The strength of the volume lies in the link made between ethics and globalizing capitalism with discussion of alternative approaches for action to promote a more effective and influential ecumenical dialogue. Each of the argumentspresented in the sixteen chapters is well developed, documented, and spot-on target.'Transnational Corporations
