In Your Opinion: Corporate 'morality' is all relative

It is of late reported that CVS will stop selling all cigarette and tobacco products, estimating that as a result it will forgo $2 billion in revenue. Walmart, which refuses to sell Playboy, Penthouse and other gynecology-through-the-picture-study-method magazines, continues to sell tobacco products. 

Curious morality, or what I would call the “morality of convenience”; e.g., if it doesn’t affect the bottom line, it is moral.
