holidays on which most citizens do not work as well as a business environment that looks down on working overtime as it interferes with family time. The religions of Chile also influence the values, attitudes, customs, manners and behaviors of the people which in turn affects how business is conducted in Chile. An indirect relationship between religion and the Chilean economy is through the influence of religion on Chilean politics. Valenzuela, Scully and Somma state that alignment with political parties is continuously effected by the religions of Chile (2007, p. 2). In their study they found that the religiosity index had the greatest effect on the ideological self-placement. They also noted that a father’s ideology had an effect on the religiosity index of the Chilean people (2007, p. 11-12) which can be contributed to the patriarchal family values. The political affiliation of the Chilean citizens is heavily affected by their religion, and the political parties affect the governmental policies that are passed which could affect the Chilean economy.

GLOBAL BUSINESS CULTURAL ANALYSIS: CHILE 13 American country in 2005 (Management & Excellence, 2005, p.1). Recently in Chile corporate social responsibility emerged with new initiatives that moved businesses beyond simple philanthropy pushing Chilean business ethics to be more socially responsible, especially when environmental issues must be considered. A study conducted by Beckman, Colwell, and Cunningham in 2019 showed that Corporate Social Responsibility has taken hold in Chile even though very few companies in Chile have a Corporate Social Responsibility program or manager (2019, p. 194). Their study showed that in 2005 only 40% of the five Corporate Social Responsibilities were present in Chile mainly due to a lack of focus on high ethical standards or the environment. The study also showed a steady increase in the Corporate Social Responsibility over the past 40 years (2019. 194-195). Improving the business ethics of Chile is a priority for the Chilean government. The higher the standard for business ethics the more likely other nations will want to conduct business with Chile, thus expanding its global presence in the world economy. Holley conducted a study of post-secondary students in 2012 attempting to determine the level of knowledge of Corporate Social Responsibility and other business ethics (2012, p. 177-178). The results showed that the students did not have the level or understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility that she believed they would have. Her study did show that the students were open to learning more about using sound business ethics and that they believed they would need sound business ethics to allow Chile to maintain its reputation of being ethically sound and to increase the overall economy of Chile (2012, p. 178-179).

    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.
