The thesis that commerce supports world peace was widely held in Kant’s time. Exponents of the thesis included Adam Smith, David Hume, and John Stuart Mill. Kant (1963, p. 23) had this to say: In the end, war itself will be seen as not only so artificial, in outcome so uncertain for both sides, in after effects so painful in the form of an ever-growing war debt (a new invention) that cannot be met, that it will be regarded as a most dubious undertaking. The impact of any revolution on all states on our continent, so clearly knit together through commerce will be so obvious that other states, driven by their own danger, but without any legal basis, will offer themselves as arbiters, and thus will prepare the way for a distant international government for which there is not precedent in world history.

But Kant’s moral philosophy is more than a series of negative constraints. If business is to be faithful to the second and third formulations of the categorical imperative, business managers should manage so as to provide meaningful work for employees, and business firms should be organized more democratically. Finally, firms engaged in international business can contribute to the goal of world peace. Kant’s moral philosophy has rich implications for business ethics. References Bowie, N. E. 1999: Business Ethics: A Kantian Perspective.
