This article addresses the moral questions about deception and disclosure of information in the context of business and professional ethics. It contends that there are issues that are relevant and argues for the wrongness of a wide range of deceptive business and professional practices. It also suggests that even salespeople and other business and professional people who do not have fiduciary obligations also have substantial duties to offer information and give warnings. It proposes the application of Golden Rule tests for the permissibility of actions.

Keywords: deception; disclosure of information; business ethics; professional ethics; fiduciary obligations; Golden Rule tests; permissibility of actions
