CITE Business Ethics Holley Endorses & the Mutual Benefit Rule Discussion

Center for Innovative Training and Education

Question Description

I’m studying for my Business class and need an explanation.

The discussion paper must be at least three pages in length (double-spaced, 12-inch Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins). I expect the paper to be at least that length. Do NOT write less than this or use bigger margins or fonts.

I also want to emphasize this is NOT a research paper. You should not use any outside resources or attempt to do research to write this paper. Simply read the assigned readings, reflect on the questions below, and write a paper that responds to those questions.

For this assignment, please read the two files I uploaded.

The discussion paper should respond to each of the issues/questions below:
We have recently considered the question of whether it is ethically permissible to be deceptive in business, or whether there is an ethical obligation to be honest/truthful. Holley discusses the ethical issue of deception and truthfulness in a particular area of business: Sales. He argues that a seller has some degree of obligation to disclose information and tell the truth to a buyer. However, the question is what degree of information disclosure/honesty is required? Holley presents five different degrees or levels of requirement, ranging from a low/undemanding requirement, all the way up to high/very demanding requirement.
1) Briefly explain which level of requirement Holley endorses.
2) Do you agree or disagree with Holley? Why or why not?
3) If you do not agree with Holley, which alternative level of requirement would you endorse and why?
4) What would the requirement that Holley endorses say about the World Camera case? Did the sales person do anything ethically wrong? Why or why not?
5) If you endorsed a different level of requirement than Holley, what would the requirement that you endorse say about the World Camera case? Did the sales person do anything ethically wrong? Why or why not?

1. Briefly explain which level of requirement Holley endorses
After considering different arguments about the five levels
of disclosure by a salesperson to a potential customer, the level of
requirement endorsed by David Holley is the Mutual Benefit Rule.
In this position, Holley claims that a salesperson should provide
any relevant information to the buyer that influences the decision
of the customer to buy the product or not (Holley, 1998). In that
regard, Holley recommends the salesperson to provide the buyer
with any information required to make a reasonable and viable
decision about the product, which the customer is not aware before
making the judgment. In this level, Holley claims that the
responsibility of the seller to disclose all the necessary information
to the customer should be provided in addition to safety
information about the product.
2. Do you agree or disagree with Holley? Why or why not?
I totally disagree with Holley that the Mutual Benefit Rule
is the best level of disclosure that the se...
