ABSTRACT
The article examines the role of business and its place in society. According to the author, the current crisis of confidence in the business world demonstrates not only a problem with the financial underpinning of economies but also the limitations of ideas about how business should be managed. Business activity in Great Britain is by nature contract-based, but in the Middle East and parts of Asia it is more common to have commercial relationships based on trust.
