ZORRO SANCHEZ, Carlos. Ethics, justice and ideology in the development. Polis [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.23, pp.247-278. ISSN 0718-6568.

We have become accustomed to consider as normal a number of situations of injustice that are sources of extreme misery and sterilization of human possibilities of vast sectors of the global population. This article tries to show that such situations do not result from the violation of fundamental ethical principles by some individuals or organizations isolated, but because of the application of the ethical criteria that prevail in today's economic and political practice. They continue in force because it suits the interests of countries and economic groups that dominate the global stage, those who exploit them ideologically in order to maintain their power, regardless of the damage they cause to the development of economically less advanced societies. The text concludes by emphasizing the need to rethink the ethical criteria used to support business decisions in the context of globalization.

Palabras clave : Ethics; justice; ideology; capitalism; development.
