Business-related ethical dilemma

  1. Find a business-related story from your case study log or another source (since you only have 2 stories so far)
  2. Write a business-related ethical dilemma (Example: Should the CEO of Nestle allow forced child labor at the farms where it sources its cocoa? OR Should the Nestle CEO hire a third party to monitor its supply chain to ensure that forced child labor does not occur?)
  3. Pretend that you are a utilitarian and resolve the dilemma: What are all of the categories of people affected by the short term and long term consequences of the act? How many people are in each category? On a scale of 1-10, what is the intensity and duration of their pleasure/pain/utility? Do the math to find out the net maximization of pleasure or minimization of pain.
