Project #64473 - Business/Economics/Ethics

Discourse Final Assignment, Cycle 2

As corporations produce the goods and services society needs, in the process they may consume, degrade, or contaminate public and common goods. Limited resources such as clean water, fisheries, and forests are polluted or depleted; air quality and public infrastructures are impaired or damaged. Harm to public goods from the side effects and byproducts of corporate activity also impose costs on society at large. If a corporation doesn’t internalize the social costs of its negative externalities, the burden falls on society.

 

In this paper you will research a public good or common resource that is threatened by corporate operations and/or their negative externalities.  Whether you choose to look at environmental damage, depletion of public resources, degradation of public infrastructure, or negative impacts on social structures, workers and communities, you will analyze the contributing factors and consider how to address the costs imposed on society.

 

Final Assignment:

Write a paper that analyzes the problem.

• What are the main options for protecting the public or common good?

• What roles should other societal institutions take?

• Discuss any ethical issues that are raised.

• Identify the best strategies, and discuss the risks and benefits from multiple perspectives.

• Consider whether the public costs can be balanced against public benefits or positive externalities.

• What do the various responses and strategies imply about the obligations of corporations to stakeholders and societal institutions?
