A few academic friends of mine, Chris MacDonald and Alexei Marcoux, have founded a new journal: Business Ethics Journal Review. The idea, which strikes me as a terrific one, is to facilitate a quicker and more robust critical examination of important ideas in business ethics by publishing short, peer-reviewed, open-access commentaries on articles published in business ethics journals.
BEJR went live on February 14th and has already published its first four commentaries. Readers of this blog might be especially interested in Peter Jaworski’s “Moving Beyond Market Failure: When the Failure is Government’s,” and my own “Are Usurious? Another New Argument for the Prohibition of High Interest Loans?”
