Business Ethics and Social Responsibility

...This is also extended to unethical leadership which constitutes employee insolence as it has been suggested that employees emulate the behaviours of those above them based on their perception of ethics observed (Davis 2004). In addition, the company has become loyal to its family-run business style and as a result the recruitment process that exists within this company has failed them seeing as the workforce comprises of unskilled and unqualified family members who have prevailed over a more app...

Diary of Wimpy Kid Evaluative Essay

...I think this book is a good read for kids. There are character issues and sin issues that I did not like, but it is a book that kids could read and grasp the moral roots of it. I think it would be beneficial for a parent to discuss the moral failures of the main character and give insight into what they should do to handle situations with similar circumstances. With older children, this would be a great book to read as a family and have a book study that would help kids recognize their own area...

Government business relations paper

...Without government regulation of the key areas of business such as advertising and marketing, companies could take unfair advantage of consumers. The environmental pollution issues which are an ethical issue would have had no stand point if not for government regulation. Privacy would also be violated which is unfair to the consumer and also an ethical issue, which must be addressed in all forms of business. Hence, government regulation of business is needed to keep trade fair and balanced for t...

Miss Ever's Boys Film critique

...One thing that was very sad was the fact that even after discovering that penicillin could cure syphilis; the U.S. Public Health Service did not give the sick black men. This led to the death of 160 people (B. Miss Evers Boys and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, 2013). Virtue-based ethics helps us in deciding the necessary actions to take depending on the kind of person we want to be. Here, the recognition of human dignity is very important. All humans have a right which is either positive or negati...

The Importance of Philosophy

...Second, Dr. George James, from the University of North Texas, warns that philosophy is not for everyone: It’s not for persons who have no interest in asking deeper questions. At the end of a lifetime of philosophizing one great philosopher made the claim that the unexamined life is not worth living [Socrates]. Many people don’t believe that. Some people don’t even care to raise the question. Philosophy very simply is not for them. Philosophy is not for followers. If all you want is to get...

American Apparel Case Analysis

...Alternative 1 is a better path to take than alternative 2 because it really gets at the root cause of all the issues – Dov Charney. The provocative and controversial advertisements were largely inspired by the CEO himself. Simply changing the company’s advertising campaigns is good and well, but there is no guarantee that Charney will even go for that. And what’s to say he wouldn’t go back to his old ways in the future? Also, alternative 2 doesn’t fix the issue of employee complaints a...

Hammurabi’s code: was it just

...Even though Hammurabi’s intentions seem to be good by making the intention of the codes to protect the weak from the strong as well as the widows and the orphans, these laws come off a bit harshly (Doc B) .For instance, it is an exaggeration for a married lady to be caught in an affair with another man and to then be punished by being tied together and being drowned (Doc C, Law 129). With the values that the people in the 21st century have, this punishment would be perceived as immoral. Rather...

Relationship-based governance system

...3. Does a company have to act selflessly to be considered socially responsible? For example, when building a new plant, a corporation voluntarily invested in additional equipment that enabled it to reduce its pollution emissions beyond any current laws. Knowing that it would be very expensive for its competitors to do the same, the firm lobbied the government to make pollution regulations more restrictive on the entire industry. Is this company socially responsible? Were its managers acting ethi...

Culture and Moral Values: Are they changing?

...This basically means that our ability to strengthen our way of living through technology should have no effect on changing the way our values and culture progress to with everyday life. We should not take every thing that has been blessed upon us for granted. When will we ever go back to the old way of life and try to counteract it with today’s Technology? Think about how wonderful a world we would have if everyone worked to the maximum potential. If we really tried as hard as our ancestors di...

"I’m Still Here" by Veronica Ross

...All the children came and said the same thing, “that Jacob Garson was a hero, a man brave enough to stand up for his freedom. And that they were behind him” (Ross 201). However, not all people supported him. They were others who thought he was being selfish and tried to threaten him. “We’ll burn your house down, you fool” (Ross 199). “Your land could be enjoyed by all, you selfish son of a bitch” (Ross 202). Nevertheless, those people did not make a successful interference toward ...

Matthew’s Sermon on the Mount

...According to J.F Keenan, the real question of ethics is not ‘What should I do?’ but ‘Who am I?’ ‘Who ought I to become?’ and ‘How am I to get there?’ Aristotle advocates that one reveals their true nature when one acts in spontaneous situations, in the unplanned and ordinary life. The sermon appears to support this; Jesus presented his teachings by giving examples of ordinary people acting morally in everyday circumstances. In practicing the seven cardinal virtues (temperance, fo...

The Scarlet Letter as a Story of Crime and Punishment

...Dimmesdale's conscience allows him no rest; it is rather a source of his constant trouble. He can't sleep soundly; he can't sit or study peacefully in his room; he burns midnight oil over writing sermons; he keeps fasts and vigils; he scourges himself when he is all alone. But all these dont afford him real peace. He surrenders to a second 'fall' when he accepts Hester's proposition of flight. But all the same, he keeps awake throughout the night in writing the Election sermon to delivered on th...

...As they have done for 70 years, they set their sights on the future, anticipating market needs and demands so they can steer their company toward long-term success. Integrity: Operating in an ethical way is the foundation of their business. Everything they do is guided by a moral compass that ensures fairness, respect for all stakeholders and complete transparency. Co-prosperity: A business cannot be successful unless it creates prosperity and opportunity for others. Samsung is dedicated to bein...

Louis Pojman Short Summary

...He states a variety of general ethical principles (ten, specifically, which may have a connection to the Ten Commandments or may just be a coincidence) that seem to be necessary to rid suffering, resolve conflict, and promote human flourishing. While reading Pojman’s statements on ethical relativism I asked myself where do we draw the line on deciding what is right and wrong. As a Christian it was difficult to read that some people believe in relativism and think that whatever they personally ...

John Stuart Mill’s Viewpoint on Interrogation and Torture

...Also one person could propose something would would maximize self-interest that conflict with means supported by another. Thus, self interest causes them to compromise with another to avoid interference; the means advised may accidently correspond with those by utilitarianism but the fundamental ethical imperative would not be utilitarian. Utilitarianism itself is somewhat a paradox when it comes to actual real life use but sounds wonderful in theory if the world was really black and what / end ...

Honesty and Justice in the Criminal Justice System

...I believe that every case is different and we cannot assure that honesty is maintained and still do justice. For example, every police officer is different and you have those that lie to help catch criminals and those bad cops that lie and use their authority in a negative manner. There will be police officers who go undercover and sell drugs to catch big time drug dealers, and therefore this type of lying is positive because it is for the good of our streets. It is best to be in the situation u...

Unprofessional Conduct

...How many consenting adults engage in behavior that may not besuitable for their certain profession? Many professionals go out for drinks; some may even get intoxicated in the privacy of their own homes or in the privacy of a friend’s home. There are also many consenting adults, that aren’t married, that engage in sexual activity. Because people engage in these type of activities in the privacy of your own home or a friends home does not justify the boards of your profession to revoke your li...

Ethical Issues in Social Research

...Social researchers have an obligation to protect their subjects, therefore they have to ask the subjects very personal questions about their behavior, income or anything else that may personal agony or harm to the subject. It is because of this that all participants must be informed of the risks involved in participating in research projects. Social researchers should also be careful when writing books or articles about their studies because the subjects often read the books or articles and if t...

Most Dangerous Game with the Lottery

...Connell shows at first how Rainsford is indifferent to the game that he hunts merely for pride. Jackson likewise shows the nonchalantness of Mrs. Hutchinson to the lottery and it’s repercussions at the beginning of the ceremony. Only with the introduction of dire circumstances to both characters do they begin to examine what at one time they would have considered one of their core beliefs. Both authors then confirm that the evil nature of man is more natural of a path to take than a moral one....

The Strengths and Weaknesses of Virtue Ethics

...Virtue theory offers a great deal to moral psychology. We can learn moral principles from it. Virtue ethics is less a normative theory of what we should to do than a descriptive account of the limits and capabilities of human beings. If humans are creatures that tend toward habituation, then moral educators would do well to heed this fact in developing a moral curriculum. Then it also raises questions about whether calling virtue theory "ethics" is even appropriate. Since virtue theories fail t...

Sagging Pants Essay

...They already get harassed for minor things, sagging their pants would just make the situation even worse. These kids should be taught to do the right thing, if they ever plan on going far in life. Children learn from their mistakes, but if their unaware of these mistakes, there’s no way then can correct themselves. All in all, these young men need to learn the inappropriate ways of dressing is just flat out wrong. I agree with District 215 and their new rule of banning sagging, many people mig...

Managing for Organizational Integrity

...A commitment to ethics management within a firm can reduce internal criminal misconduct and also provide a company with an added boost of public confidence and reliability. Moving away from lawyers making ethics decisions to having them assist in the formation of ethics consistent with legal practice is a superior solution because it changes the scope of the business decision process. By concentrating on ethics instead of legality makes the decision-making process fuzzier and more cumbersome sin...

Good Will Hunting Identity Essay

...Overall, Will did undergo the four identity statuses and experience the crises that James Marcia and Erik Erikson proposed in their theories of self-discovery. Will’s relationship with Skylar particularly proves that Will underwent the four identity statuses of moratorium, foreclosure, diffusion, and achievement because of his refusal to get emotionally attached to her at first, and then by the conclusion of the movie, ready to commit his life to her. Also, through the guidance of Sean Will ov...

Business Ethics Reflection

...If I was a company and was faced with the same dilemma today, I would have arrived at the same solution. Personally, in this situation, it would be better to amend a policy by finding suitable solutions, than it would be to stand firm. The company did the right thing by finding and purchasing acceptable beard nets rather than fight a lengthy battle in the judicial system and the court of public opinion. Therefore, I would have done the same thing today. If I was the gentleman in this situation, ...

Ethics in Public Relations

...One thing that truly stood out to me was the mention of the VNR’s, or the Video News Releases, which are video segments made to look like a news report aimed to inform an audience, however it is created by a public relations firm, advertising agency, marketing firm, corporation, or government agency. The issue with the ethics behind the VNR’s is the issue of deception to the audience or using these segments as a propaganda technique. VNR’s are a vital part for news delivery, however when ...

Ethics Paper

...Ethics and social responsibility come hand in hand when dealing with the world of business. When developing a strategic plan a company needs to ensure these areas are addressed and balanced when considering the needs and agendas of its stakeholders. This can as simple as keeping stakeholders informed that it is essential to act ethically for the long term health of the company. Enron is a prime example of the hardships a company as well as its employees and stakeholders can face when a company p...

Unethical Behavior

...Putting compliances and code of ethics would drastically reduce the number of unethical situations. In conclusion, unethical situations can destroy an organizations culture. Employees should recognize the importance of not acting unethical. Senior leaders should incorporate ethical guidelines and ensure that everyone is in compliance. Having a code of ethics and following them will enable the organizations success. Ethical behavior is making good decisions based on those codes of ethics. This is...

"Bonum Ex" Principle

...In its more general signification communism refers to any social system in which all property, or at least all productive property, is owned by the group, or community, instead of by individuals. Thus understood it comprises communistic anarchism, socialism, and communism in the strict sense. The complete equality sought by communism is a well-meant but mistaken interpretation of the great moral truths, that, as persons and in the sight of God, all human beings are equal; and that all have esse...

"The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas

...As we can see, Monte Cristo took his revenge in a way that didn't involve any act that was illegal. I think that revenge is morally justified in this particular story, because he did suffer a great deal, and there was a very good reason for his revenge. In every day life taking revenge is somewhat childish, but not taking it is surrendering. In my opinion revenge should be taken, and a person should be punished for a bad thing he did. The power of revenge is found in everyone of us, but we all h...

Divine Command Theory

...Clearly, the Divine Command Theory is a very sensitive subject to discuss. Despite the strength of each argument, there is no real proof on either side of the argument than can without a doubt prove that what God commands is right because he commands is or that God commands that which is right because it is right. Both can be considered valid arguments of the amount of control God has over the moral standards of the universe, but it is much easier to attempt to disprove something that has no con...

"Killings" by Andre Dubus's

...The other Fowler children are left to believe that their brother's murderer has escaped trial and disappeared. Mrs. Fowler acknowledges this in the story when she says, "We can't tell the other kids. It'll hurt them, thinking he got away. But we mustn't" (Dubus 96). This is yet another consequence of these murders. Frank Fowler and Richard Strout are dead, Matt Fowler will most likely feel forever isolated, and the lives of Ruth and the Fowler children have been deeply affected by these crimes....

Mortal Law Verses Divine Law

...Everyone can identify with Antigone's attitude because all people have their own set of "higher laws" or moral values. These values have changed over time. Different people from different times and different cultures are obviously going to have varying views. In the days when everyone had the same value system because they were all the same religion, these values were reflected in the laws. As people progressed, they separated into different religions and beliefs so the laws changed with them, b...

Family values

...America is a blessed, great and most powerful nation of noble people with highest moral standard because of their firm belief in strong traditional family values. If it falls which may likely happen like the other great empires in the history, it will be because of the decay of the family values. It is time we realize the value of a family unit and be there to support our children, teach them the family values and set an exemplary role model. The future of these great nation lies in the hands o...

The Film Wall Street Ethics Paper

...In summary, watching the film "Wall Street" from an ethical perspective is quite a bit different than watching it for entertainment. It made me think a little about how I do business on a daily basis. I have always felt that nothing should prevent a person from maintaining high ethical standards and social responsibility, even in the quest for high performance and quality. I can only hope that ethical standards and social responsibilities have guided me and will continue to guide me throughout ...

Religion in Modern Society

...With all of the trouble in our world today, its disconcerting to know that religion is a contributing factor. Even more so after we have been told of the attributed attainment, and the possibility of its bliss and sanctuary within our miniscule existence. All of our misguidings, misdirections and misinterpretations are being unraveled, and worsening throughout the course of time. This, and the subjective persuasion and manipulation we bestow upon ourselves will convey our impending death and des...

Use and misuse of animals

...In the end, one can observe that the enormous increase in the number of humans has led to a new moral status, a moral status created by humans themselves. Both the authors have this new moral status in their minds when they talk about this topic. They both value human life, and probably animal life too but they like many others they prefer to honor humans first, and then animals. The only hope is the further advancement of science and the moral obligation of mankind to prevent animal misuse. It'...
