Learning Activity #1: Show Me the Regulation?There are at least two different positions taken on the question of whether government regulation orlaws can facilitate ethical behavior. The author in “Ethics Without Regulation Won’t CutItâ€, http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2009/01/30/ethics-without-regulation-will-not-cut-it/ takesthe position that you cannot trust businesses on their own to do what is ethical; therefore somegovernment intervention in the form of laws and regulations is necessary. In two of your readings forthe week, “Role of Government in Regulating Business Ethics†and Business Ethics: The Law of Rulesâ€,the authors seem to argue that overreaching laws and regulations do not facilitate ethical behavior, andindeed might have the opposite effect. Using these articles as an initial starting point, what do you thinkabout the debate and what is your position? Why do you believe your position is sustainable ordefensible?Learning Activity #2: When in MalaysiaW.B. Milestone, Inc., a manufacturer of sophisticated computer parts, recently moved the operations ofone of its divisions to Malaysia. The Company has hired several hundred workers at wages considerablybelow their U.S. counterparts, but consistent with the prevailing wages in Malaysia. Not only is theCompany benefitting from the lower wages, it is also able to reduce its costs further because of thedeplorable factories used for its operations (no air conditioning and poor ventilation), it can dispose ofwaste without any government oversight, and government inspectors are routinely given gratuities forfavorable inspection reports or to otherwise grease the skids for the Company. The Company’soperations are in all key respects in accordance with the laws of Malaysia. You were recently hired as asenior vice-president in charge of the Malaysian operations and you are concerned about what you haveseen and heard as to how the plants are being operated. When you called a colleague in the states, hesaid to you “keep your mouth shut and when in Rome do as the Romans doâ€. What are some of theethical issues you should consider in charting your course of action and how would you resolve them?
