    Welcome to English Language & Usage, Madski. Could you clarify exactly what the question is? Is the title the question? – J. Taylor Dec 4 '18 at 16:40
  • Madski, how should your terms be defined? Word for someone who makes decisions based purely on business might match what would be most efficient and where is that written? A decision made regardless of ethical consequences might be more businesslike, or more efficient or both but can you justify either? – Robbie Goodwin Dec 4 '18 at 22:26

The word pragmatic (M/W) has that meaning, although it is more often used in the sense of merely practical, rather than amoral.
