Week 6 Economics and Ethics 11 11 unread replies. 25 25 replies. Read the articles found on the Instructor Notes page. Do you have an explicit code of ethics in your own company? What do you think about it? Is it divulged to very associate? Do they know it and respect it? Do you think that there are differences regarding Morals and ethics caused by culture? Give three examples. Have you ever been in a situation that you needed to make a decision that would sacrifice the “business at hand” for ethics? How did you handle it? Any other ideas? Remember: The maximum grade for late work is C. Your work can only be one week late, except for documented excuses. In that case, a schedule will be discussed and agreed upon between instructor and student.

B Feb 29, 2016 My company definitely has an explicit, written code of ethics. We have an online system used for certain aspects of training, and ethics is included in this. Every year we have to log in, go over the documentation, and take a series of quizzes. My company operates in a highly regulated industry, so it is extremely important to maintain high ethical standards. The process we have in place ensures every employee understands the company policies. I definitely think that culture affects moral standards. I would think that the majority of the population views stealing or killing as morally wrong. However, it is possible that within the culture or a criminal organization, these actions are morally accepted. The same could be said for marijuana. The culture of Colorado is likely changing as it is now legal there, while many outsiders view this (and all drugs) as wrong. I can't think of any instances in my job where I sacrificed the "business at hand" for ethics. However, I can think of small examples in my personal life. I have seen people drop money unknowingly multiple times, and I will always pick it up and return it to them. In the "business" of my personal life, I am sacrificing a personal gain to do the ethical thing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
