Let's Make 2017 The Year Of Ethics And Morality; Forbes, 12/28/16

Deepali Srivastava, Forbes; Let's Make 2017 The Year Of Ethics And Morality:

"The chronic decline of our political structures and civil society institutions became painfully obvious this year. The election of Donald Trump in the United States and the rise of the far right in Europe are inspiring much soul searching in the West. The problem is just as acute in Asia where the middle class’ growing prosperity is deeply intertwined with worsening inequality, environmental degradation and social unrest.
Yet, I detected another trend in 2016 that fills me with hope for the New Year: the very public embrace by eminent scientists, economists, novelists and even some businesspeople of the role of ethics in society.
Influential people have started espousing the moral philosophy of doing the right thing and are building bridges between spirituality and rationality."
