and Family Business Success Factors
-- Colin Coulson-Thomas
Entrepreneurship is one of a number of factors that could account for the success of a family business. There are critical success factors that are important for the success of most businesses regardless of their size and ownership. Understanding the nature of both entrepreneurship and business success factors can help one to assess the extent to which family businesses might be able to make a distinct contribution that larger and/or listed companies would find more difficult, and whether, if governance issues are addressed, entrepreneurship could lead to reinvention, give family companies a new purpose and create additional opportunities for family members.

Entrepreneurship in Emerging
and Developing Markets:
The Case of Vietnam
-- Stephanie Jones and Rafael Masters
Vietnam has seen continuous economic growth, averaging 6.15% per year since the year 2000, partly encouraged by the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Seventy percent of the population is under 30, and are ambitious and internationally-minded, taking ideas from anywhere and implementing them in a way suited to the Vietnamese market. The strong software industry is becoming the Silicon Valley of Asia. Vietnamese students have been scoring highly in internationally-ranked tests in recent years, offering a pool of skilled labor for prospective entrepreneurs. When taken together, these factors make Vietnam a very attractive proposition for outside investors and local entrepreneurs alike.

Ethical Ideology: A Review of Literature
-- Sunayna and Manjit Kour
The behavioral sciences present a number of theoretical models that explain the process of moral judgment and a number of personal moral philosophies. One of the popular and much-researched ethical ideology concepts was given by Donelson Forsyth. According to Forsyth (1992), individuals’ moral beliefs, attitudes, and values comprise an integrated conceptual system known as personal moral philosophy. The present paper is an attempt to review literature on ethical ideology with focus on Forsyth’s Ethical Ideology Taxonomy and Ethics Position Questionnaire (instrument to measure ethical ideology developed by Forsyth). This will lead to an understanding of the ethical ideology of different people and how it is related to different personal factors. Understanding ethical ideologies will help in understanding customers, managers and employees in a better way. It has been found by different researchers how people differ in their ethical ideologies and how it affects their decision-making process. It is also observed in many cases that ethical ideology differs with different personal factors like age, gender, education, experience, etc. This gives us insight into why people react differently in different situations and what to expect of them in different scenarios.
