This article highlights the importance of the concept of conflict of interest to our ethical thinking about business. It describes the progress made on settling various disputes regarding this concept and suggests that the next state in the development of our understanding of conflicts of interest should merge micro- and macrolevel studies with a middle realm. It outlines an agenda of empirical and normative questions that deserve attention in future research.
