Question 1 1. The statements, “Man is the measure of

Resolved Question:

Question 1 1. The statements, “Man is the measure of all things” and “Justice is the will of the stronger,” can best be attributed to: XXXXX XXXXX The Sophists Aristotle The Natural Rights theorists. 0.5 points Question 2 1. Which ethical theory would be described as the most “democratic” one? Answer Locke’s Natural Rights theory Rousseau’s Social Contract theory Kant’s Categorical Imperative Machiavelli’s The Prince 0.5 points Question 3 1. Which of the following is not accurate? Answer One benefit to being a sincere ethical emotist is that one is morally infallible. One convenience to being an ethical emotist is that one can change one’s mind about a moral issue simply by expressing a different feeling about an action. Morality is a societal-based phenomena according to the doctrine of ethical relativism. Cultural relativism is a prescriptive ethical theory that sets forth moral norms. 0.5 points Question 4 1. Fran believes all people in a society have an implicit agreement with one another to obey moral rules. Which of the following ethical theories most accurately describes Fran’s beliefs? Answer Utilitarianism Machiavellian ethics Rousseau’s ethics Ethical Relativism 0.5 points Question 5 1. Which of the following is not an accurate statement? Answer According to the Sophists, moral terms such as “justice” had no basis or truth in any objective, fixed reality and thus were merely relative terms, relative to the person using them. The highest stage of moral development according to Lawrence Kohlberg is to obey the law and to uphold the current ruling legal order. For Plato, the Form of the Good is the final expression and absolute source of morality and goodness. Plato’s theory of Organizational Ethics including his conception of the Just State is a very elitist notion that reflects distrust for the masses and democracy. 0.5 points Question 6 1. Someone who believes that moral decisions should be made such that the greatest number of people receive the greatest amount of good out of the actions, believes in which moral theory? Answer Ethical relativism. Utilitarianism. Ethical fundamentalism. Kantian ethics. 0.5 points Question 7 1. At the highest stage of Kohlberg’s moral development is the person who: Answer Makes moral determinations based on the law. Makes moral determinations based on what society believes is right. Makes moral determinations based on reasoning from universal objective ethical principles. Makes moral determinations to please other people, especially “authority figures” like parents or bosses. 0.5 points Question 8 1. In business negotiations, Carol, the chief executive officer of Design Associates, Inc., follows Kant’s Categorical Imperative, which Answer Encourages the accumulation of as much personal wealth as possible Mandates respectful treatment of others in all situations Permits taking advantage of others in financial terms but only in business dealings Requires an increase in business profits over a certain period since profits are essential to survival. 0.5 points Question 9 1. One criticism of ethical relativism is that: Answer It requires people to be culturally competent. Some persons would take actions that they believe to be moral, but which most people in society might believe to be immoral. Decisions require the measurement of quantities and qualities that are not subject to precise measurements. It really requires one to take several courses in philosophy and ethics to figure out what is moral based on this ethical doctrine. 0.5 points Question 10 1. One major criticism of ethical relativism is that: Answer Moral and ethical rules are too rigid and fixed over time. Some persons would take actions which they believe to be moral, but which most persons in a society believe to be immoral. Decisions require the measurement of qualities which are not subject to precise measurements. Decisions are not allowed to take into account the mores or customs in a society. 0.5 points Question 1 1. The local government in conjunction with Big Construction Corporation has proposed demolishing 800 of 2000 units in a low-income housing project that has become crime-ridden and in poor repair. The 800 units will be replaced with 300 units, half of which will be for low-income families, and half of which will be for moderate-income families. Some persons object to the plan because there will be fewer low-income housing units after these changes are completed. This proposal Answer Could be deemed moral under Utilitarianism since a greater good for the community and the majority of the residents would be achieved Could be deemed immoral under Kantian ethics if no suitable housing arrangements are made for the lower-income residents who are displaced by the project Could be deemed a socially responsible action if Big Construction Company donates substantial equipment, personnel, and material to the project as well as to Habitat for Humanity All of the above. 0.5 points Question 2 1. Pursuant to the Friedman, organizational, or traditional view of the corporation, the corporation is obligated to: XXXXX XXXXX Kant's Categorical Imperative since it is a high moral standard Be socially responsible in the communities where it does business Make profits legally Come to the rescue of poor neighborhoods around its facilities when local government is financially constrained and the company is doing well. 0.5 points Question 3 1. Which of the following corporate governance reform strategies, if adopted, would be LEAST LIKELY to decrease the amount of immoral and "irresponsible" corporate behavior? Answer Requiring the study of business ethics and applied business ethics in business schools and corporate training Increasing the amount of legal regulation of business and imposing stronger penalties for violations Increasing shareholder power to approve executives' compensation packages Reducing the amount of government regulation of business since market forces invariably will operate to deter corporate misconduct. 0.5 points Question 4 1. Which of the following cause problems in determining whether an action is legal? Answer A large number of ethical theories Too general definitions of "corporate social responsibility" A lack of lawyers None of the above 0.5 points Question 5 1. Which of the following is NOT a correct statement? Answer A company's code of ethics must demand altruistic behavior from the firm's employees. All members of a profession are professionals but not all professionals are members of a profession. Business management cannot yet be regarded as a profession because business management lacks a general code of ethics for managers as well as the typical autonomy of the traditional professions. In recent years, businesses have taken a more active role in dealing with social problems. 0.5 points Question 6 1. Stephanie is a successful entrepreneur but her company is not involved in any civic affairs or charitable activities in the local community. XXXXX XXXXXkely is: Answer Liable to be sued civilly based on the principle of Legal Nonfeasance. Immoral pursuant to the Last Resort principle for not "helping out" in the community. Immoral pursuant to Legal Positivism. Socially irresponsible. 0.5 points Question 7 1. CEO Alfredo is a devout believer in freedom of contract and the free use of one's private property. Considering these facts, which of the following may best be classified as an accurate statement about Alfredo? Answer He will always follow the Utilitarian approach to the resolution of moral issues in business. He is a socially responsible "satisfier" rather than a profit-maximizer. He is not a Natural Rights believer. He is not disqualified from being an ethical thinker and actor concerning business-related moral issues. 0.5 points Question 8 1. A spray paint company discovers that its products are being misused by children and young people, who get "high" sniffing the fumes. There are no warning labels on the spray paint cans. The company would be best deemed to have what type(s) of obligation and duty to take steps to protect children and young people? Answer An ethical obligation but not a legal duty A legal obligation but not an ethical obligation Both an ethical obligation and a legal duty Neither an ethical obligation nor a legal duty. 0.5 points Question 9 1. The following statements pertain to the use of the law as a device to control corporate misbehavior. Which statement is most accurate? Answer A factor operating as a limit on the law's effectiveness is that rational corporate actors may at times consciously decide it makes more sense to violate a legal rule to advance their self-interest if they think they can "get away with it." Because business entities seldom have a significant voice in determining the law's content, the law has generally proved to be an ineffective control device. A basic assumption underlying the use of the law as a control device is that corporations frequently behave irrationally. The law as a control device is irrelevant since market forces eventually will curb all illegal and immoral conduct. 0.5 points Question 10 1. Which of the following is a correct statement? Answer The legal law ultimately rests on coercion and force, whereas ethics relies on persuasion and social sanctions to enforce moral rules. Inductive reasoning involves reasoning from general principles or definitions. Socrates thought that obtaining knowledge was impossible and thus the search for knowledge was a waste of time and effort. An ethics based on one's conscience or religion is a very scientific form of ethics since appeals to one's conscience or intuition as a moral guide are objective and impersonal and not subject to rationalization. 0.5 points Save and Submit
