A transitional economy provides an opportunity to examine the ethical attitudes of small businesses and family owned businesses. In this paper a survey of family businesses in Kosovo finds that family businesses do have different ethical attitudes than non-family businesses, although the differences are slight. Conflict among family members is associated with slightly improved ethical attitudes.
