Out To Lunch: Ethics First

Grant Morris
It's New Orleans

Everybody knows right from wrong. Everybody knows numbers don't lie. Nobody wants to spend time in prison. Why, then, would a person lie about corporate profits, knowing there's a high probability they're going to get caught and end up behind bars?

Peter's guest on Out to Lunch wrote the book on business ethics, and it's not theoretical. Aaron Beam went to federal prison for his part in a multi-billion dollar fraud, and now teaches others how to make better decisions.

Peter's other guest, Dr. Barbara Fleischer, comes at business ethics from a unique perspective. Barbara is forging a link between business and spirituality.

For his part in business, Andrew Preble is locking people up, but not in prison. His new undertaking, Escape My Room, is a game that's catching New Orleans up with a sweeping international trend.

Peter Ricchiuti is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! His insight and humor have twice made him the top professor at Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business. After a successful career on Wall Street, Ricchiuti served for five years as Assistant State Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's $3 billion investment portfolio.
