Proposition: Since ethical stewardship creates model values and behavior worthy of emulation, improves trusted relationships with stakeholders, and supports long-term interest over short-term interest, then installing ethical values in government will give a good reputation to the country and increase direct investment opportunities. Unethical leaders, on the other hand, create a work environment that breeds distrust, uncertainty, dishonesty, greed and low employee morale.
