Assignment 1: Not All Companies Are Viewed as Equal

In the land of free trade, the public does not view all industries as
equal. Do you believe that is ethical? Do you believe that some
industries are unfairly targeted? Should it be consumers’ choice to
partake in products that are not healthy for them, or do those companies
have an ethical obligation to protect people? In this assignment, you
will choose one (1) industry to write about. Possible industries to
research could be tobacco, soda, alcohol, casinos, or candy companies,
just to name a few.

Write a one and a half to two (1½ – 2) page paper in which you:

  1. Become
    an advocate for either the consumer or the industry. Prepare an
    argument explaining the major reasons why you support either the
    consumer or the industry.
  2. Explain the role capitalism plays in corporate decision making.
  3. Discuss
    if you believe it is possible for a company to cater to both its best
    interest and that of the consumer conjointly or if one always has to
    prevail. Justify your response.
  4. Use at least two (2) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
  5. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
    1. Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
    2. Include
      a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your
      professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not
      included in the required page length.
    3. Include a reference page.
      Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is
      not included in the required page length.
