Recode Co-founder and Editor Kara Swisher recently argued in a New York Times op-ed that perhaps companies in Silicon Valley should install “chief ethics officers” to help them deal with their many current ethical quandaries and avoid future ones. I think the kind of officers Swisher imagines would be a valuable addition to corporate life, but not because I harbor any illusions about how successful they would be, but because—especially when it comes to business ethics—it is important to not let the good be the enemy of the better.
