JCCC The Business Ethics Discussions


week 5 
US companies regularly move their operations to other impoverished areas/countries where they can get cheap labor (people who will work for practically nothing to make products). Let’s focus specifically on the people who live in those impoverished areas and the good for them when a US company shows up. Isn’t a little money earned working for a US company better than no money whatsoever?

week 6
If you decided to take a stand and boycott any product that is sold in the US that was manufactured through so-called sweatshops (a factory or workshop where manual workers are employed at very low wages for long hours and under poor conditions), what would you have to give up?

week 7 
A pregnant woman has just taken a job and is with the employer for about 2 months.  She starts to interview for a new, better “Dream Job,” which is looking like they will hire her.  Answer these 3 questions:
(1) Should she be interviewing for a new, better job in the first place so early on?
(2) Does her decision to interview with the Dream Job place, right now, pass Hooker’s generalization test?
(3) Should she tell the new Dream Job place up front that she’s pregnant?  She’s wondering if, once they find out a few weeks after she takes the job that she’s pregnant (she’ll have to tell them at some point, obviously), they’ll think she’s a liar or untrustworthy (starting off on the wrong foot, so to speak, with a “bad” reputation).
week 8
Think back to the first material you read in the book about Jennifer’s choice to break her agreement. Hooker thinks that her choice PASSES the utilitarian test. Do you agree with Hooker that Jennifer’s choice to break her agreement passes the utilitarian test?

week 9 
If a charity sends me free address labels and I don’t make a contribution, is it OK to use them?

week 10
Is it considered stealing to take pens from a bank? What about extra napkins from a fast-food restaurant?
week 11
Explain why a bank lending money to someone they know is not going to be able to pay back does not pass the utilitarian test.?
week 12
According to utilitarianism, the end of bringing about the most pleasure/benefit/good for the majority can justify means to that end which may include lying, stealing, or even killing someone in the process.  Let’s say a company came forward and said they would give the world a cure for all cancers (and we believed them, because they showed us a few examples of legitimate curing of cancer) provided we gave them 100 healthy human specimens for their own experimentation.  (Forget about the legality, let’s say we made it legal.)  How would the utilitarian have to respond?
week 13 
I can’t do this for every action, but for a lot of them I stop and think, “Would I want my mom to see what I’m doing right now?” This usually stops me and causes me to ponder: Am I being a person of integrity? Am I being truthful here? And other kinds of virtuous questions arise. It’s a good virtue ethics-type of thought experiment, I believe. What do you think? Is it a good thought experiment for business decisions?
week 14 
How aggressively should corporations seek to avoid taxes? Is it morally acceptable to set up legal and financial structures for the sole purpose of avoiding taxes? How can we distinguish between tax avoidance and tax evasion?
week 15 
Do state-run lotteries pass Hooker’s utilitarian test? As always, defend your views with reasons and evidence?

week 16 
I have 2 girls adopted from China, and before we went to pick them up the adoption agency said that we had to purchase around 10 gifts to give to officials in China, which we were happy to do (since we wanted our girls). However, what if my wife and I decided not to give the gifts? It felt kind of bribe-ish. What do you think?
