In all areas of life, there are issues underlying any societal operations. In the area of finance, there are several ethical issues that govern any prudent use of resources. To Kill a Mockingbird offers a perfect example of why those who are unable to speak for their own welfare ought to be fairly dealt with. In our present world, the one who has is the one who matters. The one who has not is regarded lowly. This is not in any way different from the situation in this novel. It is very unfortunate that society does not place importance in the fact of being human. The status of an individual is assessed against their financial back up. Where does this leave the guy that has nothing? What then is the state of the poor? How are the poor looked at? What is similar between the way the racially different are considered in the novel and the way they are considered in our contemporary society? These are some of the questions that this paper is going to address. The bias in this study will be in the area of finance. It will look at some of the situations that present themselves in money matters, which can be measured against the experiences in Maycomb country of the book To Kill a Mockingbird. In other words, it will study the relationship between the novel, and the ethical issues around finance.
