But, because of its particularity, its subjectivity, and its instability, both Griffiths and I would aver it is too insecure a foundation on which to build RGC; though, as I have already acknowledged, a ‘when in Rome’ type cultural relativism may be appropriate at the lower end of the moral pyramid. The second source is adherence to global ethic based upon a universal consensus on ‘particular human values, criteria and basic attitudes’ (Küng 1998). This ethic is particularly associated with the German theologian, Professor Hans Küng (although other analysts such as Amitai Etzioni, George Soros, and Francis Fukuyama come near to endorsing it) and is described by him in Chapter 6 of this volume.

Robert Putnam (1995), Amitai Etzioni (1996, 1998), and Francis Fukuyama (2000) are just three of several observers who have catalogued the growing social dysfunction and rise of moral relativism of Western societies between 1960 and the early 1990s—they believe this may have been reversed in the mid to late 1990s17—in terms of the depletion of the relational and ethical assets of each of the institutions of capitalism. This, it is worth noting, has occurred just at the time when such assets are becoming a more critical component of RGC.

An Overview 25 This surely is an area where the combination of the virtues of moral suasion and emotional intelligence needs to be fostered. In short, I believe, that if RGC is to be upgraded and sustained, the scope and intent of universally accepted moral standards—as they appertain to economic transactions—will have to be both widened and reconfigured; and that a high priority needs to be placed on promoting these standards. At the same time, I also foresee a continuing trend towards the strengthening of local customs and traditions, and the moral values which undergird these (Thomas Friedman has called the balancing of these two forces the ‘glocalization’ of culture (Friedman 1999)).
