Assignment 1: Not All Companies Are Viewed As Equal

MUST BE ORIGINAL

 

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? In this assignment, you  will choose one (1) industry to write about. Possible  industries to research could be tobacco, soda, alcohol, casinos, or  candy companies, just to name a few.

Write a one and a half to two (1½ – 2) page paper in which you:

  1. Become an advocate for either the consumer or the industry. Prepare  an argument explaining the major reasons why you support either the  consumer or the industry.
  2. Explain the role capitalism plays in corporate decision making.
  3. Discuss if you believe it is possible for a company to cater to both  its best interest and that of the consumer conjointly or if one always  has to prevail. Justify your response.
  4. Use at least two (2) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
  5. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
    1. Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
    2. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your  name, your professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover  page is not included in the required page length.
    3. Include a reference page. Citations and references must follow APA  format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.
