Case of Global Ethics vs. Global Economy
This is a case that will be tried in the court of Public Opinion.
Good Clothes Company, a United States corporation, buys clothing assembled by Beta, LTD., a foreign company that employs children under 12 years of age. These children work nine hour days and for low pay. Betas nation does not enforce its child labor laws limiting workdays to seven hours for children under 12. Many times the childrens income is needed by the family for basic necessities. Beta and Good Clothes are aware of this.
Human International Politics (HIP), an international political activist organization, discovered Good Clothes connection to Beta, LTD. HIP plans to reveal this information to the press and on social media. Good Clothes hears about this proposed action by HIP. Before HIP can act, Good Clothes terminates its relationship with Beta. Good Clothes then publicizes this action in its advertising. The companys sales and profits increase, apparently as a direct result.
- Has Good Clothes acted unethically in any way(s)? Explain using one of the ethical philosophies from the text and facts from the scenario.
- From an ethical perspective, is Good Clothes conduct in terminating its relationship with Beta more important than whatever its motive might be? Why or why not? ..
How to Navigate this Course Step 2 – General Information and Grading Scale
Congratulations on making it this far. Here I will be Speaking Words of Wisdom.
This Module covers general information and the grading scale. I suggest you give it a nice read over to give you an idea as to the work in the course. The due dates for everything is in the Syllabus link. The directions may also be repeated for each individual assignment and quiz.
Additionally, each student is presumed to have consistent and reliable access to a computer that will be available for emails, course announcements, quizzes, assignments and discussion board forums. Please be careful when using a phone to complete an assignment or a quiz. If a call interrupts your work, Canvas will submit it and not allow you to continue. The quiz or assignment wont be reset in this case. I strongly advise against trying to exclusively use your phone for this class.
All assignments will open in Canvas at least 6 calendar days prior to their due date. Check the syllabus for due dates. Many students miss the numerous notices in Canvas that quizzes and assignments at due at noon (12pm) and not midnight (12am).
No fancy fonts Courier or Times New Roman are perfectly fine to read and look professional. Word is acceptable. NO GOOGLE DOCS. No pages. No wordpad.
There is a tutorial in your Canvas container that shows you step by step how to submit an assignment so it can be opened and graded. If I cant open it after several tries using different programs and computers, then I will give you a -0- with a note that says I cant open this. The assignment will stay a -0-.
Spelling and grammar are a part of every grade in this class. I trust that every student has a grasp of basic English grammar concepts and spelling. Spell Check and Grammar Check are only tools and they sometimes overlook errors. There is no substitute for good proof reading or asking for help. There is a free writing lab, Net tutor in Canvas for all students. Do not plagiarize as I use Turnitin. That software tool checks for plagiarism. It has a data bank that includes prior semesters’ work. Dont use texting language on the discussion boards or assignments (examples of this includes OMG, BFF, etc.)
The Discussions section will have numerous forums opened throughout the course for student use; helping each other with assignments; asking questions of their peers; forming study groups; etc. These are monitored and participated in by the instructor(s) but are not graded. The Jury assignments are the only graded Canvas discussion forums.
THIS IS IMPORTANT. You may not reference, in any written work, any text except the required textbook and Additional Reaqdings. If another source is referenced, -0- points will be given for that reference.
Generally, late work is not accepted. If an exception is made due to a family or medical emergency, the instructor must be contacted as soon as possible. If the late work is accepted, it will generally receive an automatic 20% deduction for each 24 hours it is late.
Sometimes a student will produce an excellent analysis in a written assignment. In that case, the student will be awarded a Brownie Point for a job well done. These are randomly awarded so please dont ask for one.
Did you see that all work is due at Noon on Mondays and not Midnight? If submitted at 12:01 pm, it is late. If submitted at 12:00am Tuesday, it is late.
I do not grade on percentages as shown in Canvas. The percentage grades are built into the grading scale .
