ABOVE THE BOTTOM LINE focuses on the issues of the individual in the business environment, rather than focusing on large-scale, ethical decision making. Solomon's emphasis on corporate culture gives students direction in making personal decisions and relating those decisions to the personal concepts of social responsibility, employer rights, and other timely topics.
