Sofia Medeiros BUS 331 Dr. Pressley 10/20/09 Please read for understanding Chapters 1 through 13 chapter summaries. Indicate to me with a simple confirmation that you did so. This assignment will count as all others toward your final grade.

The 10 amendments are explained but the attention is more direct to the freedoms that the first amendment affirms, such as freedoms of religion, speech, and others. Chapter two emphasizes the ethic directly applied on business as well as the importance of it when making business decisions. The business ethics concept of “a consensus as to what constitutes right or wrong behavior in the world of business and the application of moral principles to situations that arise in a business setting’ is clearly used for all the following chapters, once the ethic is suppose to be constantly applied in business and legal decisions.
