Welcome back, everybody.
00:02
Yeah, We're gonna go through ethics to find. What does ethics mean to you
00:07
here? Five definitions.
00:09
We're really gonna focus in the bottom two year. The principles of conduct governing an individual or group. And the obedience, the unenforceable.
00:17
So you saw that case when when I was a capital one when I was doing internal fraud? That was obedience to be unenforceable, right? I made that decision based on my own moral rectitude to make that call. I don't think anyone would have known that I knew that information. Otherwise,
00:34
the reason that we're gonna focus on those bottom two is because ethics is largely those right versus right decisions
00:40
you need to make. Sometimes I'm back on behalf of others
00:45
to their three ways to be wrong.
00:47
Violation of law.
00:50
Departure from truth. This one's pretty obvious. Like lying in those kinds of things.
00:55
Um, And then moral rectitude right on. This is about your moral compass. Hey, if it end up on the front page of the paper, would I be okay with this
01:06
if my mom saw it, But I'd be okay with this. My grandmother sought those kinds of things by doing the right thing.
01:12
So departure from truth on DDE
01:17
Well, we'll go into, uh, laws. Well, in this, huh? So, Bill Clinton,
01:26
Every time I see this picture, I just think of my grandmother.
01:30
So my grandmother was
01:34
old Southern lady, right? She was from Louisiana, and she was there during the days of Huey Long was one of the main governors there on Dhue. It was like a notorious philanderer, constantly lying, right. And
01:49
she grew up during that period, and she didn't really hate anybody. Like she always was like, Oh, I love this person and was always trying to find the good in people. She had six kids. I got her college diploma when she was much older. Just amazing story.
02:06
And she didn't hit anybody until Bill Clinton.
02:10
She hated this guy
02:12
The moment that she saw on the TV. A Z young kid. I just didn't really understand. I mean, everyone seemed to love him. Why'd she hate him? And she just said,
02:23
I know it is time.
02:24
I know his type. He looks like he we long to name. That's all I think about when I see him.
02:30
So the slick southern gentleman according to her, and
02:35
turns out sometimes your grandmother's right,
02:38
right? So all the great things that Bill did across for diplomacy, our economy, you name it right,
02:46
healthcare.
02:49
This is what he's most remembered for
02:53
lying to the American public
02:55
about an affair that he had.
02:59
And it wasn't so much the affair. That was the problem.
03:01
It was the line
03:04
because it made you question what else he lied about.
03:08
And so therefore,
03:12
that is what ethics is all about, right when you do that lying,
03:17
then it questions everything that you've done in your entire life.
03:23
And it's not just in the case of personal
03:25
look at Iran, right
03:28
is also a violation of law.
03:30
But they had an accounting scandal that was so massive in such a such a ridiculous scheme across the entire company
03:38
that that it caused
03:40
a massive drop and especially in 1 4002 along with, you know, obviously 9 11 in the stock market.
03:51
That means that your tensions
03:53
and your mortgage were affected by the actions of this company. Had this massive accounting fraud,
04:00
people are out of jobs on the whole industry was destroyed
04:08
just horrible right. And so often what happens in these cases? There are no winners,
04:14
right? So there are situations like this
04:16
and just nobody wins his negative outcomes for everybody.
04:23
You're gonna go on a moral rectitude where we actually go through a case.
04:27
Um, so
04:29
in the in the next video, we're gonna actually walk through that case, and I want you to pull that up in your resource tap.
04:36
Thank you.
