What do the two disasters have in common and how are
the two disasters different? Who were the stakeholders in each incident? What
should have been done to prevent these disasters? What responsibilities do the
companies involved with each disaster have to future stakeholders? How did the
companies react to the disasters, and did they act responsibly before, during,
and after each disaster?
Topic: Advertising Dreams
Does advertising create desires that people did not
previously have before seeing what a company is offering, or does it tap into
preexisting desires? If companies build advertising upon dreams or even create
those dreams, is it unethical if it causes consumer stakeholders to pursue
those dreams to their own detriment (i.e., overspending, credit card debt,
hoarding, etc.)? Is advertising ethical as long as all of a company’s
advertising statements are true, or is there something more to determining the
ethics of advertising?
