It was basically considered bad form, and it was against the rules in many American workplaces. Today, that's often <em>not</em> the case. When did this change occur? And why? Our guest is Dr. David Miller, who serves as Director of the Princeton University Faith and Work Initiative. As such, he both researches and lectures on business ethics as well as the intersection of faith and work (in the US and around the globe).
