Most treatments of this subject resort to case-studies in order to illustrate the application of ethical principles to business situations, but our primary emphasis will be upon classic works of imaginative literature, which convey more directly than case-studies the ethical pressures of decision-making. Readings will include work

Who's the Boss. An exploration of the ongoing tug-of-war between fairness and flexibility in the Aus
When Labor swept to power in 2007 it carried a clear mandate to bury the Howard government’s controversial Work Choices reforms. Its Fair Work legislation, which took effect in July 2009, was eagerly anticipated by those seeking a more equitable balance between employee rights and employer flexibility.

Cooperative Concurrency for a Multicore World
Multi-threaded programs are notoriously prone to unintended interference between concurrent threads. To address this problem, these lecture presenters argue that yield annotations in the source code should document all thread interference, and they present a type system for verifying the absence of undocumented interference.
