A purpose of this most recent discussion is to illustrate the degree to which the problem of virtue, extending well beyond the confines of the corporate structure, has infected society at large. This fails to imply that a (regulatory) focus on the corporation is entirely unwarranted. For instance, a logically conceivable argument may be that—due to the unique attributes of the corporation in terms of size, resources, and so forth—an equivalent (moral) deficit, when present within the corporation, can be expected to exert a more onerous influence upon society.

Enslaving another human being is such a drastic measure, that inducing the desired stimulus–response relationship may prove impossible in certain target markets. However, it is probable that the firm still achieved a pronounced attitudinal effect within the target market, as exhibited by a general loss of respect, if not crass insensitivity, towards woman and children. The latter effect, while difficult to measure, would still result in the imposition of long-term, negative costs for society—for instance, it might decrease important quality of life measures such as marriage rates, racial harmony, and/or the success of child-rearing efforts.

Thus the virtuous executive—who over time and through the ‘‘experience of the actions in life’’139 develops ‘‘fine habits’’140 —eschews malfeasant behaviors, irrespective of their potential to provide short-term personal gain—for example, wealth and recognition. The net effect is to mitigate, rather than exacerbate, potential problems related to agency.
