1. One of the most discussed ideas about climate change is the free rider problem (responsibility diffusion/shirking), and that this problem is responsible for a vast amount of the environmental neglect. It is debatable whether it is the responsibility of businesses directly to manage their negative impacts (either directly or through supply chain), government to set good regulations to mitigate impacts in general, the consumer who purchases the products, or perhaps those who would benefit from the environmental improvement. Outline what you see as each group’s responsibilities towards pollution reduction, and potential problems each may face in meeting their responsibility.

2. Have you ever had to deal with organisational norms or expectations which – in your view – were lacking in ethical integrity? If so, describe the situation, and what was wrong about it. Also, be sure to reflect upon any pressures and challenges associated with loyalty, conformity, and moral courage. Regardless of how you coped with the situation at the time, explai​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​n what you now consider to be the best way in which you could have dealt with it.

3. Galbraith, in his article “the dependence effect” argues that there is something perverse about manufacturing desires rather than simply satisfying them. He specifically refers to production creating the wants that it seeks to satisfy, one persons possession becomes their neighbours wish (this idea can be traced back to Keynes and Veblen before him). Galbraith is particularly critical of advertising, which has the role (among many others) of manufacturing a desire where there was none previously. Should there be limitations on the kinds of “manufactured desires” advertisers create, and why?

4. Multinational corporations have arguably the hardest job ethically when it comes to issues of global corporate social responsibility. Should corporations simply adhere to the law governing which ever country they happen to be operating in, or do they have a larger responsibility that should be consistent and cohesive, across all their operations, regardless of the country in which those operations are condu​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​cted?
