Abstract

The author explored the difference of ethical issues in different forms of business. The persons in different forms of business are industrialist, contractor, retailer, dispensary owner and farmer. From each category, 15 persons were taken from Dhaka and Laxmipur district and thus a total of 75 persons formed the sample. The scale used was ‘Business Ethics Inventory’. It was developed by Venkatapathy. In this scale there were 26 factors.  Among them, 17 were positive and rests were negative. There was insignificant difference among the average ethical values of different forms of business. Some recommendations were made and some of them are proper scale should be introduced, government should be firm in terms of rules and their implications, proper facilities should be provided to upgrade the ethical issues in business, monetary cells need to be developed for constant vigilance, the philosophies of WTO should be changed specially for the LDCs, proper education should be provided for people of all ages and so forth. It is expected by all to be in better position in the society. This cannot be achieved by individual efforts rather group efforts are needed.  When people will be adequately educated then automatically they implement their consensus.
