BUSINESS ETHICS AND GCE 2
Business Ethics and GCE
It's no secret how much the challenges in the environment are extremely complex. It's
more surprising, however, how much the public is frequently faced with information about how
much the environment stands at a crisis. A common response to this assertion is burying our
heads in the sand and hoping for a better future, or as Annie would have it, buries ourselves into
material goods. A system thinker like Annie Leonard looks to debunk the growing notion of
"growth at any cost" design. She discusses this concept by discussing the economic materials and
their underlying shift in the growth of the economy but looks at the end not to put blame on
anyone or instill any guilt in the process. Instead, Leonard presents many references to how the
system is technically broken. With examples from the pernicious watch-work-spend treadmill,
she argues that re-refinement of the entire process, putting time over stuff, and eliminating war
allows the creation of a happier and more equitable life that is compatible ecologically with the
earth. The story of stuff is very honest, optimistic, and spiteful and it gives the reader an
understanding of the interconnected nature of the global system and presenting an innovative and
realistic proposal for a new vision of the world.
Question. 1
The three elements portrayed in the image include;
a) The people this relates to their life in the entire system, and the effect it has on
interacting with others.
b) The government this relates to the government mandate of taking care of people in the
countries, their jobs, and well-being, but the government instead of doing this get
concerned about the larger corporations.
c) Corporation the corporation in this case are always bigger compared to the
government and ever looking to increase their earnings.
As presented in the documentary, story of stuff, the system as presented above have drastically
changed and the new structures that present an ethical dilemma in the exploitation of the
environment include the following;
Extraction extraction relates to the exploitation of natural resources and also trashing the
entire planet. The planet is seemingly depleting its natural resources since they are being used up
by people too much (Beltrán, et al. 2016). The dilemma here is that most of the first world
countries consume more resources thus producing even more waste than what can be afforded,
so therefore they exploit the developing third world countries, and government people, those
who live in these countries never own their resources and therefore the big nations use them and
end up destroying natural resources of these small countries. In such a system, when people
don’t have a lot of stuff, they don’t have similar values as those with more power of purchase.
Production The other system is a production where a mix of natural gases and toxic chemicals
in making contaminated products, which are brought by people to their houses, apply them in
their common lives and thereby the body absorbs every toxic in the substance. The ethical
dilemma, in this case, is that the government is mandated to address its people’s health, but they
end up supporting the giant corporations in adding even more toxic components for their
products, leading to health issues, even breastfeeding babies who have been exposed to the
