Balancing the Bottom Line and Ethics

Balancing the Bottom Line and Ethics

Seth Goldman, the founder of Honest Tea, and Anand Anandalingam, the dean of the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business, talk with Kojo about squaring ethical strategies with successful business models in the modern economy.

In the wake of last year's economic collapse, many people questioned whether America's capitalist system was morally bankrupt. But the recession has also given rise to a wave of entrepreneurs dedicated to changing the underlying values of America's business culture. We hear from one local business owner leading the charge and an academic encouraging business students to pursue projects with social value.
