University of the People Assignment Week 5 15MAY2018 Student X
Introduction: In my paper, I hope to address the case study known as “Even Better Than the Real Thing” with regard to the following questions: 1. Would you call honesty part of the corporate culture at Finer Bags? Yes, no, or both? Explain. 2. Corporate cultural dissonance occurs when what actually happens on the ground doesn’t jibe with the principles supposedly controlling things from above. Do you suspect that dissonance is occurring here? Why or why not? 3. This company is selling counterfeit purses, bags designed to trick people into thinking they’re real when they’re not. No one denies that. Could you use a utilitarian argument (bring the greatest good and happiness to the greatest number) to justify this corporate culture and business endeavor as ethically respectable? 4. Could you use either a basic duties argument (right and wrong is defined by preexisting principles) or Kant’s categorical imperative (to be right an act must be universalizable) to make the ethical case that this company should put itself out of business?
Body: 1.Would you call honesty part of the corporate culture at Finer Bags? Yes, no, or both? Explain.
