Chapter 7: The ethics of the Maker Movement: the potentially good and the possibly terrible

Daryl Koehn

Subjects: business and management, business ethics and trust, business leadership

Because the Maker Movement is relatively new, it is difficult to state with any certainty what will ultimately prove to be ethically good or ethically worrisome about it. However, precisely because the movement is in its early stages, now is a good time to take stock so that those in the movement can be encouraged to become ever more mindful about the ethical issues that may arise as the Maker Movement gathers momentum.
