It is relatively easy being a “Monday Morning Quarterback / Ehicist” by analyzing old football games, or in this case, recet moral challenges in the marketplace. The ideal Monday Morning Ethicist not only reflects on earlier difficulties, but prepares for the upcoming workweek by asking the right questions about future ethical quandaries.

A week ahead rather than one day behind.

The Monday Morning Business Ethicist

Albert J. Chan, Ph.D. aspires to be an anticipator as well as a reactor. The Monday Morning Ethicist Blog is his startup vehicle tobecoming a premier resource for applied ethics on the web by providing academics and laypersons an accessible intersection among cinema, culture, and corporate ethics.

In 2010, Albert worked in Irvine, CA as a business systems analyst by day and as a Southern California professor  of business ethics during the evening. In 2011, he joined the philosophy faculty at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, IA as an assistant professor of applied ethics. As a teacher, scholar, and practitioner, the Monday Morning Business Ethicist seeks to break down stereotypes about the field, and help people go beyond mere compliance by reflecting deeper about the real challenges in the marketplace.

UpdatE: In the fall of 2012, Dr. Chan unfortunately suffered a hemorrhagic stroke during a business ethics lecture. In the process of breaking the lower legal classroom rule of not using mobile phones, his students valiantly obeyed the higher moral law of calling 911, thereby saving his life. After many months of inpatient therapy and outpatient services in Iowa, Albert has returned to the sunny confines of Southern California for intensive rehabilitation and restoration.  Dr. Chan will be teaching business ethics for his former University in the  fall again, albeit online; he is grateful to the good Lord, prayers/support of family and friends, plus the advances of modern technology while he remained sleeping (unconscious) which made this all possible.
