Question 1 :
1. See Figure 15.2 on page 454, a typical organizational chart for an agency, board, or commission.
2. Find and post a chart or link for other U.S. (federal) or Commonwealth of Massachusetts (state) agencies.
3. Describe what that entity does, and make a comment, observation, or brief note on a news item related to that entity.
Question 2 :
Many practical consumers think of the pricing practices and gimmicks mentioned in the text as a nuisance or irritant that they must live with, not as something morally objectionable. But tricky or manipulative pricing does raise moral questionsâ€”not least about businessâ€™s view of itself and its role in the community. Businesspeople and ethical theorists are now beginning to take it seriously.
- What examples can you think of in your experience of manipulative pricing?
- Do you think it was morally permissible for the company to try and manipulate you, the consumer, in such a way? Why or why not?
