ESSAY ON: Ethics In Marketing

Number of Pages 8

This research paper: An 8 page paper. Is the phrase "ethical marketing" an oxymoron? Ethics in marketing have evolved over decades but it was not until the 1980s that an emphasis on ethics began to appear in the literature. The literature notes that from the 1940s until the 1980s, the rule of thumb in marketing was caveat emptor. It still is in many ways but there are more marketers trying to follow ethical practices in today's society. This paper provides examples of unethical practices, a brief overview of the evolution of ethics in marketing and discusses the American Marketing Association's Code of Ethics. Ethics are discussed in terms of marketing research, advertisements, pricing and availability, among other things. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
