Download and read the articles attached at the top of this page (titled “READING SELECTIONS”). Write a 400-500 WORD response to the reading selections, and post your response to the discussion board. Your response should take one of the following forms: an exploration of one or more of the suggested discussion questions included in this assignment, an examination of a separate issue that interests you from this week’s reading or viewing selection, OR a response to another student’s posting from this week. Regardless of what you choose to write about, be sure to support your position with specific examples and quotes from the text. If you choose to write on a topic that another student has already written on, say something new about the subject. If you agree with another student, provide additional reasons to support your position. If you disagree with another student, be respectful in your response, and be clear about why you disagree. You may complete this assignment either as one long posting or as several shorter postings. SUGGESTED DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: How serious does a risk have to be (how many reports of what kinds of harms must a company know about) in order for it to be ethically appropriate to recall a product? Should Dell have recalled four million batteries at the first whiff of smoke? Should Dell have waited longer? How (and when) should Ford have responded to the Pinto’s safety problems? Explain. What are some of the obvious and less obvious ethical issues involved in product recalls? How might these ethical issues come into conflict with a particular company’s economic concerns? Given these issues, did Dell respond adequately to the known problems with their batteries? What explains the difference between Dell’s response in the case of their laptop batteries and Ford’s response in the case of the Pinto? What are the various pros and cons of using cost-benefit analyses as a way of measuring whether safety measures are worthwhile? Can cost-benefits analyses be implemented ethically? Explain.
