    For many years, private companies have been intuitively understood as part of the economy in the same way that political parties are considered a part of politics and museums are considered a part of art. Today, concepts are linked together in ways that create immediate wonder. We have coupled concepts such as “the political organisation”, “the learning organisation”, “the expressive organisation”, “the market-oriented political party“, “investment in ethics”, etc. These concepts seduce us and produce new horizons for the workings of business but they also engender scepticism. Is an investment in ethics really ethical? Is a political organisation really social-minded?
