Utilitarian Approach as the Ethical Standard.

Q20. Explain the Utilitarian Approach as the ethical standard?
Ans. It ethicists emphasize that the ethical action is the one that provides the most good or does the least harm, or, to put it another way, produces the greatest balance of good over harm. The ethical co-operate action, then, is the one that producers the greatest good and does the least harm for all who are affected- consumers, employees, shareholders, the community and the environment. The utilitarian approach deals with consequences, it tries both to increase the good done and to reduce the harm done.
