This week we explored the idea of whether business does or does not have its own special set of ethical principles and guidelines. There was Carr’s position that it’s all just rules of the game. In contrast to that was Gillespie’s, as well as Tomhave & Vopat’s position, that business does not get any special caveat to supersede society’s ethical norms.
In the Case of the Facebook Breakup people who are identified as experiencing emotional distress are analyzed and targeted for economic gain. This is clearly not illegal, but what about ethical? Consider and respond to the following:
Share your position from this week’s reading by answering the question: Is business ethics separate from regular ethics? Be sure to back up your position with points from the well-developed arguments you explored this week.
Using your position from the first question, make a case for whether Facebook’s actions in the case were ethical or not. Be sure to explicate your position with sound ethical reasoning, i.e. theories and processes we’ve covered so far.
