Ethics is a code of moral principles and values which governs behavior of a person or group with respect to that which is right or wrong. There are various sources of ethical principles; historical background, religion, and national culture and so on that lead to the development of societal morality or society’s view of what is right or wrong. Further, societal morality is oftentimes reflected in norms of behavior and values that is accepted by society as what makes sense for an orderly society. ‘’’Some principles are codified into laws and regulations…’’’ These laws and the unwritten societal norms and values are what characterize the environment which within we each act or behave (Draft, 2007). (add spacing between each paragraph)
Ethics is an excellent metaphor of ‘lead by example’. Many people who become active in politics do so to make a difference in the lives of others, and usually that difference is for the benefit to others and the well-being of society as a whole. There is a sense of responsibility, commitment, obligation, pride, and “goodness”. These individuals want to lead by example and epitomize what it means to have the power of leadership and influence, and authority through decision-making, which could impact a community, organization, a metropolis, from one person to hundreds, thousands and possibly millions. That is a huge social and ethical responsibility. The old adage about to whom much is given, much is expected in return is apropos, for political leaders who have been empowered with authority and leadership. As the people (constituents) we “can” expect our leaders to be ethical politicians.
There are different kinds of leaders and one such leadership type is “charismatic”. Charismatic leaders influence followers through several means: by articulating a vision and appealing to followers’ sensibilities of wanting a better future for the organization; by presenting an organization’s vision statement to set goals and show purpose; through words and actions, leaders convey a new set of values and sets the example for followers to imitate; and lastly, leaders engage in emotion-inducing behavior and unconventional behavior to exhibit conviction about the vision; ‘’’Followers “catch” the emotions their leader is conveying’’’ (Robbins and Judge, 2009).
Where leadership is concerned, there is a dark side to charismatic leadership. This involves charismatic leaders who think they are larger than life. These individuals do not have the best interest of their organization at heart. Many of them use their power and act in a manner based on their own image and remake the organization to suit them. Their personal goals override the goals of the organization. They will engage in unethical behavior to gain financially (money/wealth), politically (organization’s climate/power) and personally (in stature/ego). Researchers and scholars have proposed a way to reduce the likelihood of such ethical problems and tried to integrate ethical and charismatic leadership by advancing the idea of socialized charismatic leadership- a leadership concept that states that leaders convey values that are other centered versus self-centered, and who role- model ethical conduct. Socialized charismatic leaders are able to bring followers’ values in line with their own (ethical) values through their words and actions (Robbins and Judge, 2009).
In consideration of a philosophical perspective to analyze the moral behavior of leadership, the application of which will be applied to ‘politics’. Arnold, Audi and Zwolinski point out that in doing an analysis- either ethical theory or applied ethics should be examined. It is hoped that use of the ethical theory will derive guidance for correct behavior confronted by politicians in particular circumstances. There is a school of thought or philosophical view- Pluralism that says there is only one value relevant to determine right or wrong actions, and that is pleasure; which also maintains that many things can be sources of pleasure, such as music, food, and any activity that derives pleasure for the individual (Arnold, Audi and Zwolinski, 2010).
In the book review, ‘the Role of Influence and Persuasion on Strategy and Tactics”, the author states, ‘’’what is important is not to master every simple strategy of influence and persuasion, but to understand such strategies exist, that they are a part of the marketing model of leadership, and that, like other aspects of human behavior, while the techniques can be practiced unethically, the leader can also use them in an ethical manner’’’ (Cohen, 2010). Influence is an important emotion when it comes to ethical judgments and can be traced back as far as Aristotle. Our feelings inform us of when things are not right and act as ethical alarms. Leaders are in a unique position to influence emotions of their followers and can do this through their communications and behaviors (Arnold, Audi and Zwolinski, 2010).
In reviewing the literary contributions to this section on executive leadership and in an effort to congeal the theories and concepts analyzed on leadership, the following are taken from Daniel Silvermintz, How Much is too Much? An Aristotelian View of Irrational Exuberance as vignettes. (Use document bullet each vignette/para space)
* Vignette 1- The problem of greed is certainly not a new one. The sixth century Athenian politician, Solon stated, “In wealth no limit is set up within man’s view; those of us who now have the largest fortune are doubling our efforts.”
* Vignette 2- Aristotle delineated a category of “natural acquisition”, by which we procure goods that are necessary for sustaining life.
* Vignette 3- According to Aristotle, ‘’’the moral and intellectual virtues were the true riches that should be pursued with the same zeal as most men pursue the money of the marketplace.’’’ (Virtue is doing the right thing at the right time.)
* Vignette 4- All men should act in the spirit of generosity to others in need but the extremely wealthy have a unique ability to serve the public good…
* Vignette 5- Aristotle held that it is easy for men to corrupt themselves through the insatiable pursuit of wealth; yet also recognized that living a life of virtue does not require great sums of money.
The scientific study of economics began with ancient Greek philosophers and one significant difference from modern day study is that ancient economic thought was treated within the context of ethical investigation (Silvermintz, 2010).

(different article) 3 Tips for Using Industry Research to Your Advantage
by Rachael Baihn, on March 11, 2019
(add small picture to side of article)
One of the many challenges of running a successful business is that markets change. It’s natural: Tastes shift, technology advances, and the consumers you target today may look and behave differently from those in the market tomorrow.
So if markets are a moving target, it is critically important for businesses to have industry research. Without the right industry data, it’s like entering a skeet-shooting tournament wearing a blindfold: You can compete, but you’re not going to win.
Here are 3 ways to use industry statistics to your advantage.
1. Track consumers’ changing needs and wants.
Nearly every business carefully catalogs and mines its own customers’ behavior, as well they should. But customer data can’t tell you everything. Supplementing customer data with industry data can lead you to new revenue, or prevent you from going astray.
Take the online travel industry, for example. It has been growing at a double-digit pace for years. So all’s well, right?
It is — if those in the trade are paying attention to the shift to mobile devices. According to the “Travel Trends Report 2019” from travel software maker Trekksoft, online travel bookings are shifting sharply to mobile devices. Consumers surveyed from around the world used cellphones and other mobile devices for 56.7 percent of online travel bookings in 2018, up from 51.5 percent in 2017.
Anyone who makes money from online travelers — from the online giants in the travel booking business to the boutique hotel — had best check their websites on a cellphone to see how easy it is to use. Industry data sources say that’s how most consumers are booking their vacations.
2. Guide the selection of new products.
Whether you are starting a business for the first time, or are considering expanding an existing business into a new line, market research data can be your best friend.
Fortunately, market research data need not be expensive. It’s available for free through government sources online. If you join an industry association, access to industry research is often included with the price of admission.
Retailers, for example, would be foolish not to peek periodically at the Census Bureau’s retail reports, which aggregate sales data on a host of industries. You can view it online or download it into a spreadsheet.
You can also use digital tools to generate your own trend data — and you don’t even have to be a nerd. Google Trends, for example, lets you quickly build your own data set centered on the key terms that your customers are typing into a browser.
You can also find market statistics on websites like MarketResearch.com or Profound.com, where research specialists are available to assist you at no extra cost to you.
3. Keep an eye on the competitive landscape.
Thinking of entering a new line of business? You’ll want to see who the competition is, and that’s where industry research can flash you a red or green light.
Landscaping industry statistics, for example, paint a picture of a highly fractured competitive landscape, with a huge number of small, but highly experienced, players. While it is a $52 billion industry in the United States, a full 72 percent of landscape contractors employ four or fewer employees. You can also expect that the average landscape contractor will have enough experience to know Bermuda from Bluegrass: 77 percent of landscaping companies have been in business at least 10 years.
These kind of statistics can also be particularly useful in industries with an international component. In its white paper, “Trade Analysis: Using Trade Data in Strategic Decision Making,” The Freedonia Group points to export data as a source of intelligence. By knowing from U.S. data that the United States exported 48 million kilograms of soybeans to Canada equivalent to $28 million, an export price of $0.60 can be inferred. For a wannabe soybean exporter, that’s handy intel.
The Freedonia researchers add a wise caveat — take care which data you rely on. Dig into the small print. You can find important information hiding amid asterisks and footnotes. The researchers may have assumptions baked into the data, or could have excluded certain classes of data, which can lead you to a different conclusion than you originally had.
So whether it’s about soybeans or Zoysia grass, dive deep into the weeds. Industry data can be dirty, but used right, it can help a business grow.

Imports and Exports: The Benefits of Utilizing Trade Data
by William Carr, on January 21, 2019
The following is an excerpt from the white paper "Trade Analysis: Using Trade Data in Strategic Decision Making" published by Freedonia Custom Research.
As international tensions and tariff activities increase, trade analysis will continue to play an important role in strategic decision making. Through analysis of trade data, you can reveal key insights about domestic and global markets to better inform your business decisions. Trade data can illustrate the mechanics of product supply chains and domestic demand for goods and services, as well as recent shifts in the movement of raw materials between nations.
In situations where estimates exist for the production of certain goods within geographic boundaries, trade analysis can help estimate the local demand for certain goods and services. This estimate for demand for a product within a country, called apparent consumption, takes into account a nation’s production as well as its imports and exports.
Apparent Consumption = Domestic Production – Exports + Imports
For example, in 2016 Canada produced an estimated 8.7 million metric tons of barley (according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization). In the same period, it exported 1.2 million metric tons of barley and imported less than 0.1 million metric tons. Therefore, apparent consumption of barley in Canada can be presumed to be approximately 7.5 million metric tons. This type of analysis is sensitive to any errors in reporting for both domestic production via government sources and the trade data. However, it can often provide a good starting point for estimating demand for a product within a specific nation.
Supply chain insights
Finished products are often the result of inputs from countries across the globe. Trade analysis can determine how raw materials and inputs flow across regions and identify the countries that supply the bulk of material for production.
For instance, trade analysis can help identify how materials are acquired and value is added by different nations. As such, there may be a correlation between the flow of raw materials into one country and the exports from that country of finished goods, or intermediate parts. Export data from different regions may further provide insight into which nations are the highest exporters of certain goods, and can inform future strategies for acquiring intermediate or raw materials.
Data sources that report exports in both value and volume terms may give some insights into general export prices from different nations. For instance, according to the US International Trade Commission (USITC), the United States exported 48 million kilograms of soybean seed to Canada in 2017, equivalent to $28 million. Per these reported metrics, a rough export price estimate for soybean seed can be inferred of slightly less than $0.60 per kilogram. Users attempting these measures should be cautioned, however, that these are only estimates of export prices for the measured HS code as a whole, and estimates will suffer from any reporting errors that occurred during the trade flow.
Trends over time
In an era of escalating trade tensions, import and export data can assist in the examination of how trade policies impact the global and regional flow of goods. New or increasing trade barriers can alter how production inputs are used across industries, and these changes can become evident upon examination of trade data sources.
For instance, changes in the production capabilities of a nation over time may be reflected in a slowing of exports from that region to the world. For many industries, key components in the production process are sourced from all over the globe, and trends in trade behavior in these nations may signal a need to re-evaluate the source of vital production inputs.
Users should keep several potential caveats in mind when interpreting or analyzing reported measures from trade databases. For instance, shipments may be tracked under one specific HS code despite actually containing several different products. This would result in an overestimate of how much trade for the good of interest actually occurred over a time period, since it would count extraneous items. This would additionally cause those extra goods to not be accounted for in other trade flows, underestimating how much was traded between nations. Several methods can potentially be used to identify discrepancies, including:
Comparing exports to known production data of a country to identify potentially overestimated flows of goods
Conducting primary research with key market participants to identify the typical share of produced goods that are traded
Using value and volume estimates to roughly estimate export price and compare against known or suspected average pricing for goods
