Do  governments and companies in developed countries have an ethical  responsibility to contribute to economic growth and social development  in developing countries? ( 2 paragraphs!!!)


(JIMMY) -Honestly  this is the start of a great conversation. We are being asked if  developed governments/companies have an ethical responsibility to  contribute to economic growth in developing countries, in my eyes I  would say no. In my eyes they don’t have an ethical responsibility. In  my eyes the only way they are going to help is if its in their personal  interest. Its like the E text states ” The ethical behaviour  of  business and the broader social responsibilities of corporations have  become a major issue in the United States and all countries around the  world”.”pg 64 e text” Why? Well that easy a lot of countries are so  focused on building their economy and developing their growth that they  don’t see the reason to help an under developed country.Dilemmas  that arise from conflicts between ethical standards of a country and  business ethics, or the moral code guiding business behavior, are most  evident in employment and business practices, recognition of human  rights, including women in the workplace, and corruption. The newer area  of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is closely related to ethics.  However, we discuss CSR issues separately. Ethics is the study of or the  learning process involved in understanding moral- ity, while CSR  involves taking action. Furthermore, the area of ethics has a lawful  com- ponent and implies right and wrong in a legal sense, while CSR is  based more on voluntary actions. Business ethics and CSR may be  therefore viewed as two complemen- tary dimensions of a company’s  overall social profile and position.”pg 65 e text”  Ethics  is the study of morality and standards of conduct. It is important in  the study of interna- tional management because ethical behavior often  varies from one country to another. Ethics mani- fests itself in the  ways societies and companies address issues such as employment  conditions, human rights, and corruption. A danger  in interna- tional management is the ethical relativism trap— ”When in  Rome, do as the Romans do.” ” pg 84 e text”

Now  if its in their personal interest or an act of good faith then yes you  will see one help another. For Example, look at what happened in Puerto  Rico with the hurricane and how it destroyed a lot of homes and  landmarks and the whole country in general. The United States had an  ethical responsibility to help as Puerto Rico is a common wealth of the  United States but countries like Cuba and Venezuela also helped with out  any real obligation. This was an act of Good faith. This is were you  saw unity with one another regardless of circumstance you saw people  come together for one common goal.

In  conclusion, its like I said there isn’t an ethical obligation to help  but at times you would see countries help in good faith. You normally  see the act after a devastating travesty or if the countries have some  form of history supporting each other in the past. If those two factors  aren’t you wont see countries helping one another.


(Maria Morillo)- Hello professor and classmates,

Companies  do have an ethical responsibility to contribute to economic growth and  social development to developing countries. Some of the initiatives that  allow corporations to be account for their conduct around the world.  Governments and companies in developed countries have an ethical duty to  add to financial development and social advancement in developed  countries because numerous companies, and the government, win huge  benefits from working together in developed countries. While numerous  organizations appreciate these benefits, some may not be careful  concerning how the creation of specific items may influence nature.  Mindfulness is basic to how creation may influence nature and how  essential human rights might be manhandled the world over. Information  is control and when companies are kept advising of different laws in  various nations and how these laws could influence their companies it  can have a significant effect on their methodology when entering  distinctive markets universally.

Companies  in developed countries who use labor in developing countries especially  have an ethical responsibility to contribute.  These companies,  specifically, are profiting from the modest work, yet they are doing  nothing to propel the conditions that their laborers are living in. As  the book takes note of, these firms. Besides, adding to monetary  development and social advancement in creating nations is probably going  to likewise convey here and now advantages to the administrations and  organizations of created nations, as far as notoriety and political  acknowledgment, and long haul of benefits and worldwide financial  development.
