BUSINESS ETHIC PAPER

Not All Companies Are Viewed as Equal

Overview

In the land of free trade, the public does not view all industries as equal. Do you believe that is ethical? Do you believe that some industries are unfairly targeted? Should it be consumers’ choice to partake in products that are not healthy for them, or do those companies have an ethical obligation to protect people?

Instructions
