McKenna Appears On “Chicago Tonight” Talking About Business Ethics

By • Aug 10th, 2012 • Category: Pure Content, Where I've Been

I appeared July 17 on Chicago Tonight, a nightly news program produced by WTTW, Channel 11, the public television station in Chicago. The show is hosted by Phil Ponce, a very interesting guy who was really good at wrangling the three cats on this panel. I was joined by John Lothian and Professor Laura Pincus-Hartman of DePaul.

  1. It seems so difficult to “get the word” out. These business crimes continue and yet there has not been an atmosphere that creates a disincentive to stop the criminal behavior. As John Lothian indicated crime pays. They are fined, yet, the fine is less than the earnings from the criminal act. Result, a net profit.
    I thought Professor Pincus-Hartman was making excuses with the comments regarding the intense pressure to perform. They do it because they must succeed. Please!! give me a break. That says that the illegal acts of these individuals is excusable because there was pressure? That pressure is will I get my extra $250K Succeed in getting a bonus, or not? Booo Professor…. Teach your students that integrity of action is the best bonus they can take home and invest in.
    Francine was great. I thought you were constrained in what you were ‘allowed’ to say. But, part of that was due to time constraints. Good segment, and good work by Mr. Ponce.

  2. Well done, Francine!!!
