Yes, I agree with this argument because all actions have externalities and the consequences may not be desirable to us. For example, if one is caught, the consequences may not be desirable including loss ofjob, and possible jail term. In all honesty, it is important to stick to the legal and ethical course of action at all times. The ethical decision making framework should be our guides whenever faced with an ethical dilemma

I partly agree with this, but I also disagree with this because in business, there is some decision that people do not make because of the known drawbacks. In as much as I agree that we should think outside the box, it is quite clear that some business ideas are bound to fail, therefore, we should analyse the situation thoroughly before making decision whether people like it or not. Thinking outside the box is a cliché because nobody seems to think outside the box nowadays, people just make decision. UN less, you are really going to think outside the box, then do it, but carefully.
