In 1726, Daniel Defoe wrote the famous politcal work The Complete English Tradesman. In it he holds British trade to a much higher standard than the rest of the world and that certain gentlemanly qualities must be exhibited in order to be successful. "Trade must not be entered into as a thing of light concern; it is called ‘business' very properly, for it is a business for life…" Adjunt associate professor John Paul Rollert joined the Belly team to discuss the ethics of business as it's been commercialized and how loyalty comes into play.
