What does it mean to have a philosophic view of business? Describe what you have learned about the elements involved in addressing ethical dilemmas in business. Define the concept of ‘social responsibility’ of businesses in general and cite some specific examples either from the assigned materials or others that you are personally aware of. Some argue that many businesses ‘cannot afford to be ethical’ — that is, doing anything beyond what is required by law and by their presumptive goal of providing goods and services in order to make a profit. Others argue that businesses cannot afford NOT to take into account considerations ‘beyond the bottom line’. What do you think, and Why?
