Spiritual values have influenced the business ethics of many renowned entrepreneurs. Some of them include John Willard Marriott (Marriott Hotels), John Tyson (Tyson Foods), Truett Cathy (Chick-fil-A), and Sam Walton (Walmart). In 1905, German sociologist Max Weber published a seminal book in which he argued that the Protestant work ethic facilitated the rise of modern capitalism in Northern Europe as it prompted many people to pursue success and prosperity in the secular world. Over the following decades, scholars began examining more actively the relation between religion and business ethics, most of them concluding that the values and principles underlying the major global religions can be integrated into business practices with highly positive outcomes. Despite their differences, these belief systems invariably promote hard work, integrity, compassion, and social responsibility, all of which are values that have grown tremendously in importance over the last 20 years. Financial expert and published author whose book, Faithful with Much: Breaking Down the Barriers to Generous Giving, is now available on Amazon in Kindle, Hardcover, and Paperback formats, Tony Amaradio is convinced that religion can be a force for good in the business sphere, as demonstrated by his own professional success and personal achievements.
