1. Export capital for production abroad: According to Shaw and Barry, deciding what sort of economic arrangements would best promote human happiness requires the utilitarian to consider many things. It is unethical to export capital for production abroad because this capital can be used for production facilities domestically and by exporting this capital, the opportunity is available for local and domestic use is restricted.
Each person is to have an equal right to the most extensive total system of equal basic liberties compatible with similar system of liberty for all. I believe the principle is saying that we should be free as possible to set the course of our own lives. Social and economic inequalities are to satisfy two conditions. First, they are to be attached to positions and offices to open to all under conditions of fair equality of opportunity; and second, they are to be to the greatest expected benefit of the least advantaged members of society. I believe the idea is that social and economic inequalities are not wrong, or bad, in themselves. They only become indefensible when they don't operate to improve the position of the worst off. The capital should be used for purposes, which benefit the domestic market and does not in any way hamper the domestic necessity. Once capital is exported then the entire purpose of being available domestically is lost.
Rawls theory states that what causes the least harm to the greatest population and the least harm to the least population should be implemented. This Theory states that exporting the goods abroad is gonna harm a great number and should not be implemented. The least harm is caused when capital goods for production is used domestically. This theory is also called the theory of justice where Rawls attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice by utilizing a variant of the familiar device of the…...

James Hardie

...1. Who are the stakeholders in the James Hardie asbestos case? Hoffman, Frederick & Schwartz (2001, p163) stated that corporations have stakeholders, that is, groups and individuals who benefit from or are harmed by, and whose rights are violated or respected by, corporate actions. Based on the James Hardie asbestos case, the stakeholders included customers who used the product, employees and families of employees, local community, suppliers, demolition contractors, the neighbours of mines and manufacturing plants and the Government of Australia (Shaw, Barry & Sansbury 2009, pp 262-263). (54 words) 2. What do you think of the way in which the boards of James Hardie have managed the asbestos compensation issue? The board of James Hardie Industries has managed the asbestos compensation issue with principles of egoist. Egoism defined as an act is morally right if and only if it best promotes a person’s long term interest (Shaw, Barry & Sansbury 2009, pp59-60). Based on the case, the action of James Hardie has used the restructuring to limit its liability and the concept of Separate Legal Entity to protect him in 2001 to avoid the compensation issue (Shaw, Barry & Sansbury 2009, p 263). However, on Thursday 15 February 2007, the long-term interest has no longer promoted to the company due to the Australia Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) commenced civil penalty towards on the company.

How Does Shaw Present the Relationship Between Eliza and Higgins and to What Extent Does the Audience Find It Funny.

...The myth of Pygmalion comes from the mythical Greek sculptor Pygmalion who sculpted a piece of ungraceful ivory to a stunning female statue. Shaw emphasises, social class and manners through the play of his version of Pygmalion . I will be analysing these affects and how they are comedic to the audience. At the heart of these aspects are Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle, a relationship that Shaw depicts as a romance. Shaws clever use of phonetics ephasises the broad cockney accent which suggests that Eliza is lower class. The audience give her their sympathies specifically because of her misfortunes, begging people to buy flowers off her in the rain. But we find her comic all the same. There are traits of comedy of manners and satire in the way Shaw presents Eliza which we as the audience recognise and appreciate as Pygmalion is mainly about manners and class. Shaw describes Eliza as “ Not at all a romantic figure, her hair needs washing rather badly”. He chooses to portray his idea and opinions of lower class through this raw character emphasising Elizas vulgarity and appearance in addition to the fact that she sells flowers for a living. Eliza has a poor crass cockney accent “ Theres mennars for yah… Baw yah a flahrz of a pore gel”. Through language Shaw develops the humorous relationship between Eliza and Higgins. When we are first introduced to Henry Higgins as the notetaker. The audience have no notion that Shaw has chosen this character to be...

Dave Barry Author Analysis

...Cortney Bramlette AP Language Mrs. Richards 3-21-14 Author Essay #9 The general argument made by Dave Barry in Turkeys in the Kitchen is the men are raised one way, and women are raised another. That does not mean that they are incapable of doing each others stereotyped jobs, it just means that women are born better at cooking and cleaning while men are born better at fixing cars and eating the food women cook. (Okay that might be a little sexist, but slightly true.) Dave believes that men not knowing how to do anything right in a kitchen and women knowing the in’s and out’s of every kitchen utensil dates back to the pre-feminism era and the sexism of it. When asked to cut up a turnip, this is what goes through Dave’s head. “Now to the woman, who had all the sexist Home Economics training back in the pre-feminism era, this is a very simple instruction. It is the absolute simplest thing she can think of. But to the man, who got his training in Shop Class, learning things he would never ever need to know for the rest of his life, such as how to make “dado” joints, this instruction raises many troubling questions.” It seems as though Dave almost finds it unfair that he was never taught the correct way to cut up a turnip. He goes on to say that even once he picked up a zucchini (hoping it would be the turnip he was supposed to be cutting up) his wife “much too patiently” took it from his hands and replied with “That’s all right. I’ll do it.” If he only would be...

...While there are so many controversial pieces of art, today, I am asked to compare only 2. I will be comparing these pieces of art in the context of time, the impact of the art, the artist’s legacies, and the art itself. Both pieces of art I will be comparing have had significant controversy and this controversy paved the way to infamy for both artists. I believe comparing these pieces of art will create a greater sense of what makes art appealing and why some art may make more of an impact on society than other pieces. The first piece of art I will be analyzing is Nude Descending a Staircase by Marcel Duchamp. Many people recognize Marcel duchamp as one of the greatest influences in 20th century art history. From Great Modern masters Jose Maria Faerna says, “Duchamp is one of those rare personalities whose influence directly altered the course of history, in this case art history, dividing it into a before and after.” Many people think that realms of art we utilize today would have simply been impassable without Marcel Duchamp. By 1912 Duchamp had mastered the art of using paint as a medium and realized that he would spend the next portion of his life pushing the limits of paint as an art form. The piece I will be analyzing is a piece presented in the Lexington Avenue Armory in 1912. This famous exhibit displayed more than 1,000 pieces of art by many different credible and revolutionary artists. Some artists that were featured in this exhibit were Picasso, Matisse...

Nancy Barry / Authentic Leadership

...Nancy Barry Case Analysis Jason Mandel Ramapo College of New Jersey 21st Century Leadership October 15, 2015 Briefly introduce the case (discuss Barry’s important life decision) The Nancy Barry chapter in “The Leadership Moment” is the story of a Harvard-educated woman who quickly gained success as a high-powered lending executive at the World Bank, and then went on to transform the business world as President of Women’s World Banking (WWB) (Useem, 1998). As readers, we are exposed to Nancy’s important life decision early on in the chapter when the WWB approaches her to lead their organization (Useem, 1998). At that time, Nancy was a highly compensated executive as Chief of the World Bank’s Industrial Development Division, with a large administrative support staff, and had been working there from 1975-1990. Clearly, giving up a powerful position with the globe’s most prominent bank after 15 years of service could not have been an easy decision. However, Nancy fully supported the WWB and the Grameen Bank of Bangeldesh for quite some time, so even with her contemporaries calling her “crazy” for leaving the World Bank, Nancy proved she was authentic by taking the position as President of WWB and following her heart instead of her wallet. Discuss Nancy Barry’s leadership style using LMX theory The LMX theory, or leader-member exchange theory, spotlights positive, dyadic relationships between supervisors and subordinates, often producing an increase in organizational...

...Business Ethics Written Assignment for Module 2 1. Shaw and Barry distinguish two different forms of utilitarianism. What are these two forms. Briefly describe each and use examples. Act Utilitarianism and Rule Utilitarianism are the two different forms of utilitarianism that Shaw and Barry distinguish. Utilitarianism refers to the greatest happiness principle for the most amounts of people. Act utilitarianism “states that we must ask ourselves what the consequences of a particular act in a particular situation will be for all those affected. If its consequences bring more net good than those of any alternative course of action, then this action is the right one and the one we should perform” (Shaw and Barry, pg.60). I look at this as to mean when choosing between two alternative acts in a situation then the right act is the one that brings the best result or the most happiness, basically the consequences of a single act. Rule utilitarianism “maintains that the utilitarian standard should be applied not to individual actions but to moral codes as a whole. The principles that make up that code would then be the basis for distinguishing right actions from wrong actions” (Shaw and Barry, pg.77). I look at this to me at measuring the consequences of the act repeated over and over again as if it was a rule whenever there are similar situations. 2. What do economists mean by the "declining marginal utility of money"? Declining marginal utility of money stated by Shaw and Barry as......

Organizational Behavior

...Business Ethics M2 Written Assignment 1. Shaw and Barry distinguish two different forms of utilitarianism. What are these two forms? Briefly describe each and use examples. Shaw and Barry distinguished two different forms of utilitarianism, Act Utilitarianism and Rule Utilitarianism. To understand Utilitarianism in depth we must understand what Utilitarianism means first. “Utilitarianism is the moral doctrine that we should always act to produce the greatest possible good over bad for everyone affected by our actions.” (Shaw and Barry, pg.59). In other words, a human being tends to search for pleasure and avoid pain or suffer. Now while the Act Utilitarians measure the consequences arising from their actions, the Rule Utilitarians apply certain calculations, establishing the morality of these actions. Therefore they judge the rules by its consequences and their actions by their rules. In other words, Rule Utilitarianism is the theory that measures what is right or wrong morally based on how good or bad the consequences may be. 2. What do economists mean by the “declining marginal utility of money”? It’s just “another reason utilitarians tend to favor greater inequality of income.” (Shaw and Barry, pg.112). In simple words according to Shaw and Barry, Professor Richard Brandt, stated that our needs and wants come in order of preference. With our salary we get the things we want and most need and leave aside the items that we least need or want, giving us full...

...George Shaw GS1140 Experiment is an orderly procedure carried out with the goal of verifying, refuting, or establishing the validity of hypothesis. Experiment provide insight into cause and effect by demonstrating what outcome occurs when a particular factor is manipulated. (Wikipedia the free encyclopedia on the internet). Experiment Definition by dictionary.com is a test, trail, or tentative procedure, an act or operation for the purpose of discovering something unknown or known or of testing a principle. In my opinion an experiment is the test of a known principle or procedure to make it better than it is or to find way to solve the problem. There are many ways to solve an experiment as long as you have some of the facts or information about the problem. One experiment would be that the car companies are trying to build a flying car. I think one of the problems is going to be if the cars are going to have wings or not. Another will be getting the computer system to work properly. With all the recalls the car companies are having now I don’t think there will be too many people buying them. Also they will cause a problem will the airlines with their ticket sales and the amount of money they will make and lose in their business. The number of jobs the airlines would lose and the planes that will be useless to them. The car companies would make new jobs but there would be training for a lot of people. There would a high demand of the engineers in the electrical,......

Barry Minkow

...1. What assertions were incorrect? The incorrect assertion related to management includes Barry Minkow creating false financial statements for his restoration business that did not truly exist. Furthermore, Minkow created false accounts related to his restoration business in order to make his company look profitable. 2. What specific transaction-related audit objectives or balance-related audit objectives apply to the incorrect assertions? The transaction-related audit objectives that apply to the incorrect assertions include occurrence, accuracy, and classification. Minkow recorded transactions that never took place through the use of fake invoices. This violates the occurrence objective. In addition, Minkow would forge fake invoices indicating that the accounts receivables had been paid. This violated the accuracy objective. Lastly, the classification of his accounts was faulty because he created accounts that did not really exist. The balance-related audit objectives that apply to the incorrect assertions include existence, completeness, accuracy, and classification. Many of the amounts included on the balance sheet did not exist. For example, any inventory number he may have used was inaccurate because the restoration company did not truly exist. With that in mind, this violates the accuracy objective because the amounts could never have been correct if the company did not exist. Another example of a violation on the balance sheet was the accounts...

Storm Financial by Paul Barry

...The Saturday Paper The Monthly The Quarterly Essay ECONOMICS In the Eye of the Storm The Collapse of Storm Financial Paul Barry By mid March, America’s champion fraudster Bernie Madoff will have served two years of a 150-year prison sentence for stealing billions of dollars from his rich and famous investors. As he chalks up the anniversary on his North Carolina jail wall, our corporate cop, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), will have barely begun its action against Australia’s champion wealth destroyer Storm Financial Ltd, whose reckless advice cost 3000–4000 investors in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria around $3 billion. Yet these financial collapses happened at almost exactly the same time: Bernie Madoff was led away in handcuffs in December 2008, just as Storm’s banks pulled the plug on the big Townsville-based financial planner and its unfortunate clients. There are, of course, huge differences between the two cases, not least that Bernie Madoff pleaded guilty and Storm’s founder, Emmanuel Cassimatis, didn’t steal investors’ money. But there are also strong similarities; these two super salesmen helped wreck the lives of thousands of elderly investors. Cassimatis’ ex-partner, Ron Jelich, who sold his financial planning business on the Gold Coast to Storm and became a key player in the group, told a parliamentary inquiry in 2009 that the collapse had inflicted “total horror, emotional despair and psychological...
