Description

Previous studies have shown that communism follows different patterns in different countries around the world. China and Vietnam, where officials have jettisoned or abandoned many of the original basic tenets of communism, have been the world's two fastest growing economies over the past two decades. This paper focuses on the Communist Vietnam where in comparison to China, minimal research has been conducted. This paper explores how communist party values support ethical decision making. The hypotheses are presented in a propositional format as a first step in the development of a theory of the influence of communism on ethical decision making because the link between them is rarely explored. Relevant literature along with suggestions and implications for research are presented.
