Ethics - a luxury?

Can you afford ethics in times of crisis? Despite the fact that the importance of (business) ethics is emphasized in public speeches, it is often actually perceived as a kind of luxury which is reserved for good times. Specifically in the context of business you can often hear that fierce competition, tight budgets, time pressure and more imply that there is no room for idealistic dreams.
Prof. Dr. Andreas Suchanek, holder of the Dr. Werner Jackstädt Chair of Economic and Business Ethics at Leipzig Graduate School of Management, discusses the role and function of (business) ethics. Can it offer helpful insights?
