  1. អេ ! ចុះអាទីបីម៉េចទៅបាបកើត ចឹងអ្នកត្រូវឆ្នោតមិនបាបស្លាប់ហើយទេ😀
    និយាយអីចឹងសូមដាក់លីងមួយហើយ អូខេ?

    អ្នកត្រូវឆ្នោតមិនមែនថាមិនធ្វើការឯណា។ ខ្ញុំគិតថាគេត្រូវធ្វើការដើម្បីមាន​លុយ​ទិញឆ្នោត។​

  5. @Hi Dina!
    In this context, character refers to moral conduct.

  6. Commerce these days would go broke if morality [in the context of affordabe and cheaper prices are concerned] is applied because competition and competiveness is already driving each business to the edge and struggle to survive.

    Scientist and humanity shall be hand in hand for the better of scientific achievements not just for the scientist community but the entire population of the world [shall not be 1st, 2nd or 3rd class medicine because of different geographic boundary].

  7. @BCTor, I disagree with your first comment on commerce and morality. The following is the argument from the wisegeek (http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-business-ethics.htm)

    Business ethics is the behavior that a business adheres to in its daily dealings with the world. The ethics of a particular business can be diverse. They apply not only to how the business interacts with the world at large, but also to their one-on-one dealings with a single customer.

    Many businesses have gained a bad reputation just by being in business. To some people, businesses are interested in making money, and that is the bottom line. It could be called capitalism in its purest form. Making money is not wrong in itself. It is the manner in which some businesses conduct themselves that brings up the question of ethical behavior.

    Good business ethics should be a part of every business. There are many factors to consider. When a company does business with another that is considered unethical, does this make the first company unethical by association? Some people would say yes, the first business has a responsibility and it is now a link in the chain of unethical businesses.

    Many global businesses, including most of the major brands that the public use, can be seen not to think too highly of good business ethics. Many major brands have been fined millions for breaking ethical business laws. Money is the major deciding factor.

    If a company does not adhere to business ethics and breaks the laws, they usually end up being fined. Many companies have broken anti-trust, ethical and environmental laws and received fines worth millions. The problem is that the amount of money these companies are making outweighs the fines applied. Billion dollar profits blind the companies to their lack of business ethics, and the dollar sign wins.

    A business may be a multi-million seller, but does it use good business ethics and do people care? There are popular soft drinks and fast food restaurants that have been fined time and time again for unethical behavior. Business ethics should eliminate exploitation, from the sweat shop children who are making sneakers to the coffee serving staff who are being ripped off in wages. Business ethics can be applied to everything from the trees cut down to make the paper that a business sells to the ramifications of importing coffee from certain countries.

    In the end, it may be up to the public to make sure that a company adheres to correct business ethics. If the company is making large amounts of money, they may not wish to pay too close attention to their ethical behavior. There are many companies that pride themselves in their correct business ethics, but in this competitive world, they are becoming very few and far between.

  8. I have not finished the book “Globalization and good intention fail the poor” which is stress on globalization and how the west do to help the poors but simply failed – it is not much about charity, technical aid Etc.. but a lots how the government of each and individual country imposes tarrif and tax on importation from those countries they assisted.

    This golden saying is from Ghandi era [5 – 6 decades ago?] when he struggled for independent from UK and how he saw the world doing bussiness at the time where rich countries did not give a damn care about poor countries, trade barriers between the west and rest of the world Etc.. however today trade is less of barrier and open for fierce competition
