The NY Times letter, “Personal Values vs. Corporate Interests” is the basis for your writing assignment.

Corporate Interests.pdf
You need to answer the following, and remember to use the ethical frameworks, theories and principles we are discussing in class.
- Please write what you think the role of corporations (both publicly and privately owned) is in addressing the areas the letter writer lists and others.
- What is the proper balance between “the precepts of private enterprise” and “our pressing social and human needs”?
- What criteria should CEOs and corporations apply in considering the proper balance?
- What is the role of ethics in your analysis?
The paper should be between 2 and 4 pages in length, double-spaced 11 or 12 point font. I will grade based on the analysis and how clearly the ideas are expressed.
Please submit the paper in Canvas by 6:00pm on October 26, 2020, and email me a copy of the paper. As noted in the Syllabus, I will provide unlimited feedback on ideas/directions/etc. or respond to questions, including those on citations, but I will NOT review drafts.
