Financial Ethics Research & Basics
Seven Pillars Institute provides students and academics research and resources for a clear understanding of finance and ethics. We believe knowledge of finance is essential if young students are to grow up into financially responsible adults.
Education in ethics
Seven Pillars Institute’s three aspects of financial ethics
History of ethics
Examine the origins of ethics and its extensive branches in humanity’s history.
Ethical Decision Making
The religious and secular ethical traditions that are frameworks for ethical decision-making.
Identify ethical issues
We teach students to identify ethical issues that are specific to finance.
…Financial Autonomy & Responsibility
Financially educated and responsible adults are less likely to be duped by unscrupulous financial service providers. They are more likely to take care of their own financial welfare and thereby not rely on state resources.
