What is a market place? A marketplace is the space, actual, virtual or metaphorical, in which a market operates. The term is also used in a trademark law context to denote the actual consumer environment, i.e. the 'real world' in which products and services are provided and consumed. A marketplace is a location where goods and services are exchanged. ( How can you market ethics? The American Marketing Association commits itself to promoting the highest standard of professional ethical norms, and values for its members (practitioners, academics and students). Norms are established standards of conduct that are expected, and maintained by society, and professional organizations. Values represent the collective conception of what the communities find desirable, most important, and morally proper. Values also serve as the criteria for evaluating of our own personal actions, and the actions of others. As marketers, we recognize that we not only serve our organizations, but also act as stewards of society in creating, facilitating, and executing the transactions that are part of the greater economy. In this role, marketers are expected to embrace the highest professional ethical norms, and the ethical values that are implied by our responsibilities towards multiple stakeholders (e.g., customers, employees, investors, peers, channel members, regulators, and the host community). As Marketers, we must avoid harmful actions or, omissions by embodying high ethical standards, and adhering to all the applicable laws, and regulations in the choices that we make. We should strive for good faith, and fair dealing to contribute toward the efficacy of the exchange of process as well as, avoiding deception in the product design, pricing, communication,…...

...PHI 014.5 4/23/13 What Ethic Has Taught Me This Semester In all of my years in college, I have never really enjoyed philosophy too much. That’s not to say anything against the professors who teach it, the subject itself, or the philosophers that create the subject-matter; it was just never something that sparked my interest. That is because philosophers are notorious for talking in circles and phrasing things in a much more complex way then what is required. But I now understand why they do this; to get people like me to think about what they are writing and not just blindly read the words as they are printed. If I have to go back and read the paragraph once, twice, or more, it forces me to really understand what the author is saying and really analyze why they are saying these things. This semester I have learned many things in this course that I can now take with me into all of my future endeavors. We have discussed and challenged some great thinkers this semester and I have taken much away from that. The first thing we learned this semester, while studying the works of Aristotle, was that there are three ways to understand happiness. These ways are pleasure (including wealth), fame, and being wise. Once that happiness has been achieved, you have reached the ultimate goal or ultimate end. To take that happiness from what Aristotle considers and opinion to an actual mental state, that happiness must contain three characteristics. Being self-sufficient is the first one....

...Substantive Rules Rules of truth-telling, confidentiality, privacy, and various rules about forgoing treatment, physician-assisted suicide, informed consent, and the rationing of health care provide more specific guides to action than do abstract principles. Consider a simple example of a rule that sharpens the requirements of the principle of respect for autonomy for certain contexts: “Follow a patient’s advance directive whenever it is clear and relevant. “To indicate how this rule specifies the principles of respect for autonomy, we may state it more fully as: “Respect the autonomy of patients by following all clear and relevant formulations in their advance directives. “This formulation show how the initial norm remains but becomes specified. Example situation, * In clinical situations nurses respect a patient’s autonomy, where the patient is allowed the freedom of choice regarding treatment, such as in deciding whether he/she wishes to be incubated during an exacerbation of COPD, or deciding when he/she wishes to forgo further dialysis. If a patient lacks capacity for such a decision and has an advance directive, the person who has the durable power of attorney can make the decision. Authority Rules That is, rules regarding who may and should perform actions. For example, rules of surrogate authority determine who should serve as surrogate agents in making decisions for incompetent persons, and......

Etics: Probity in Public Life

...ETHICS – PROBITY IN PUBLIC LIFE Integrity and probity in public life are the standards that society expects those elected or appointed to public office to observe and maintain in the conduct of the public affairs to which they have been entrusted. These standards are what safeguard the nation from corruption by politicians and public officials who have been given almost unrestricted access to public resources together with the power to take decisions that impact on the lives of everyone and the nation as a whole. It follows that those in positions of power can use these positions to take decisions that are solely in the public interest or they can use them to benefit themselves, friends, and in the case of politicians, their party supporters to the exclusion of others. There is mounting evidence, documented by Transparency International among others, that given their privileged position those in power can and sometimes do inflict immense, often irreparable, damage on the country by acting in any other than in the public interest. This, essentially, is the rationale for the legislative and other measures that countries take to govern the behaviour of their public officials. The absence of integrity and probity in public life is manifested in corruption which is a worldwide phenomenon. But its impact is strongest and most pervasive in small states that already suffer from all the known disadvantages that characterise smallness such as unfavourable economies of scale, high per...

Cross Cultural Management

...will be approached from an etic or an emic perspective, and they must establish the way in which they will define or consider culture in the context of their research. The emic approach, as it applies to cross-cultural research, focuses on studying a construct from within a specific culture, and understanding that construct as the people from within that culture understand it (Gudykunst, 1997). The etic approach, on the other hand, involves developing an understanding of a construct by comparing it across cultures using predetermined characteristics. Researchers have recognized the importance of both of these approaches. From a measurement standpoint, criteria in an emic approach are relative to the characteristics of the particular culture being studied, and so differences or variability in one setting may not have the same significance as they would in another setting. The etic approach is more suited for broader analyses, usually involving two or more cultures. The main assumption in etic research is that there is a shared frame of reference across culturally diverse samples, and that construct measurement can be applied to all of the samples in the same way, ultimately allowing for more generalizability (Ronen & Shenkar, 1988). Since cross-cultural organizational research often involves comparative studies between two or more cultures, much of the research is conducted with an etic perspective. From a measurement standpoint, criteria in an etic approach are......

Business Etics

...“What is Business Ethics?” Essay Posted on July 5, 2012 1 Introduction Dated back to Code of Hammurabi some 4,000 years ago, business ethics is a social science, whose main aim is to define and examine the responsibilities of businesses and their agents as a part of the general moral environment of a given society. The products of this field of research are sets of rules and codes of conducts, which serve as a means of protection from the possible infringements of moral codes as a result from the general activities and responsibilities of a firm to its stakeholders (e.g. generating profits for shareholders and taxes to the government). This paper will briefly explain the foundations and the growing importance of business ethics in today’s economy. Finally, it will describe several contemporary issues of research and practice. 2 The Rationale behind Business Ethics In its simplest sense, the field of business ethics represents the meeting point between ethics and business, where business decisions and their implementation are evaluated in terms of the “right” (moral) and “wrong” (immoral). However, ethical decision-making is far from being simple, as is involves much greater complexity and debate (Trevino & Brown, 2004) than other ethical fields, even complicated ones such as bioethics. The main reason for this confusion is not only the themes of business ethics, but the difficulty to recognize the relevance of ethics to the business decision in question. For example,...

Emic vs. Etic Essay

...February 8, 2014 ANTH 154 Emic VS. Etic Essay Emic: The research strategy that focuses on local explanations and criteria of significance. Etic: The research strategy that emphasizes the ethnographer’s rather than the local’s explanation, categories, and criteria of significance. My first example is Celebratory Food. The Emic view in this example is that food is the center piece of almost all celebratory get togehters. No matter where you live, when there is a celebration, like holidays, birthdays, rites of passage, etc., they will most likely be serving food. The Etic view in this example is that I am from the South, and we celebrate with different types of food then the North or the West or even another country would. When we have an occasion worth celebrating and cooking, we make Chicken, cornbread, oysters, greens, salad and sweet tea! In other portions of the world though, their celebrations may include, sushi, tamales, kobayashi beef, or….DOG! My second example is Raising Children. The Emic view in this example is that children are born and either one or two parents raise them. This happens in every culture all over the world, how different cultures raise these children brings me to the Etic view of this example. Being born and raised in South Carolina, some of the first few words that come out of our mouths are Mr. or Mrs. We are raised to be southern ladies and gentlemen. On the other hand we are encouraged to hunt, climb trees, and play in the mud as well. I......

Etics in Our Every Y Lives

...Ethics is a set of moral principles or values that governs that conduct of an individual or a group. When I think of ethics, I think of our laws. Ethics and law intertwined. Sometime people will get the same response in a situation with law and ethics. For example someone was convicted of a crime and wanted to try to bribe a court official so the results will be in their favor. This is considered a crime and Ethics would also prohibit this type of conduct. Another example of ethics in our everyday lives is in a place we visit quite often the grocery store. Ethics is everywhere. Ethics is definitely in Customer service is one of the most important part of a business. Ethics help us take care of our customers and follow rules to make at business profit at the same time. The product and good customer service is what keep business growing.

I love shopping at Food Lion it is very convent for me. They feel like my opinion count. I feel like they take the necessary steps to make sure my food is kept safe and fresh.

Etic and Emic Perspective

... Part II In this section, I will examine veiling practices among Muslim women from an emic perspective. As Crapo (2013) describes it, “An emic description or analysis—that is, an insider’s or native’s meaningful account—may be written for outsiders but portrays a culture and its meanings as the insider understands it” (p.27). In her book chapter entitled The Veil in Their Minds and on Our Heads: Veiling Practices and Muslim Women, Hoodfar (1997) examines misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding this practice. From an emic perspective, Muslim women face unwarranted scrutiny over their choices from people who often have no understanding of the many reasons why women wear the veil. The reasons for wearing the veil may differ from individual to individual and from culture to culture (Hoodfar, 1997). In any culture, it is typical for motivations to vary in this way. For example, in America, wearing revealing clothing may signify confidence in one’s body for some and insecurity for others. There is rarely a one-size-fits-all explanation for any behavior. Despite this, Hoodfar (1997) notes that Muslim women living in North America and Europe often face harsh criticism over their choice to wear the veil, even though many people do not fully understand the practice, and admit to this when engaging Muslim women in conversation about the practice. Muslim women feel harassed and attacked about their choices no matter what they say, and are......

...TEXTOS SELECCIONADOS (L.Polo) * QUIEN ES EL HOMBRE (1991) Pues bien, hay que sentar la tesis siguiente: el hombre es un ser capaz de crecimiento irrestricto, un ser que nunca acaba de crecer. Ciertos tipos de crecimiento dan de sí hasta cierto punto - el crecimiento orgánico se acaba, la formación de los circuitos neuronales también; tales crecimientos no son irrestrictos -, pero el hombre en cuanto tal es capaz de crecer sin coto. Por eso para el hombre vivir es radicalmente, principalmente, crecer, y eso señala la medida en que es ético. Por lo tanto, por contraste, quien no realiza lo ético se empobrece, se estropea, pierde el tiempo que ha transcurrido mientras los acontecimientos de su vida han tenido lugar. Ahora bien, como ganancia de tiempo, el crecimiento es irrestricto, pero no indefinido, pues ganar tiempo es incompatible con un tiempo sin fin. El crecimiento humano es irrestricto hasta que termina su tiempo. La consideración del crecimiento permite aparecer del modo más ajustado un tema antropológico muy importante: el tema de la muerte. No es un asunto fácil; tiene sus complicaciones; no es la mera extinción biológica: eso sería demasiado trivial. Hay dos maneras de morir. La primera es morir porque uno es mortal, o sea, porque el tiempo humano termina. Normalmente uno se muere, a no ser que antes se acabe la historia. Pero también se puede morir como un imbécil. El que ha procurado ejercer éticamente su existir, no se puede decir que muera como un......

...Business Ethics in Leadership Corey C Calhoun Sr. Liberty University 05/03/2016 Business Ethics in Leadership Recent corporate scandals, such as Enron, Parlamat, and WorldCom, have generated significant attention in the field of business ethics. Whereas the interest in this subject pre-dates these scandals, they have undoubtedly raised the profile of ethical concerns in business among scholars, practitioners, and governments (Knights & O’Leary, 2006). Additionally, there is a growing concern on what role leadership plays in perpetuating ethical values in an organization. Consequently, scholars are concerned with discerning leadership qualities that would ensure moral and effective practices in a company. What is the relationship between leadership and ethics? One of the key questions (or in some cases assumptions) in the literature on leadership is regarding the nature of the relationship between leadership and ethics. The definition question in leadership studies is not really about the question ‘‘What is leadership?’’ It is about the question ‘‘What is good leadership?’’ By good, I mean morally good and effective. This is why I think it is fair to say that ethics lies at the heart of leadership studies. Leaders worthy of the name, whether they are university presidents or senators, corporation executives or newspaper editors, school superintendents or governors, contribute to the continuing definition and articulation of the most......

...Evaluating communication strategies Nichole Kenson HSM/210 April 07, 2016 Deborah * What strategies or techniques do you believe would be the best approach to take when communicating with each of these clients? * How might you need to adapt your communication approach from one individual to the next? With a person working in the human services field, there are many different opportunities that they have a chance at. As well as each client that has their own personal needs different from the next person, and so special requirements are needed from people to do so. As for getting to communicate with clients in an effective way, always sitting down talking to them and getting to know the person is the best start paying close attention to their body movements and what they are saying you must be observant. If a worker was to listen to their client that is the best way to understand them and their situation whatever they are in. When you are a listener, you can also give feedback on what was said during the conversation. Also take into consideration the emotional feels of someone. To be a good listener a person must include: being self-confident, also not to be aggressive with a person. A person has to be able to open up, and when you get them to, and understand their situation and the feelings that apply with, you can then take into consideration of giving positive feedback to a person and help them. A listener helps a person figure out new ideas to go with,...

Etics of Myself

...My Philosophy of Life 1 Final Paper: My Philosophy of Life Amber DeNooy Colorado Christian University HUM 425 Professor: David Mullaney June 7, 2003 My Philosophy of Life 2 Over the past 13 months that I have been attending CCU, I have learned a great deal about myself. This has been especially true during the past five weeks while in the Personal and Social Ethics course. Our philosophy of life greatly influences our ethical decision- making. This paper will discuss several areas related to my philosophy of life, including my character traits, worldview, theory of knowledge and truth, and principals and values that direct my life. Section 1: Character Traits Who am I? The complete answer to this question would be far too long to discuss in the context of this paper. Therefore, in this section, I will focus on one of my most defining characteristics and two other areas that define who I am. I consider being a Christian my most defining characteristic. My beliefs impact everything in my life. Because my beliefs impact my view on life, they will be discussed in greater detail in section two of this paper. Over the course of this Management of Human Resources (MHR) program, I have learned more about two other areas that define who I am. In one of the MHR courses, we took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) (Myers & Briggs, 1993). The MBTI measures personality preferences in four different areas: extraversion (E) versus introversion (I), sensing (S) versus intuition (N)...

Etics Paper

...Administrative Ethics Paper Gwendolyn Matthews HCS/335 December19, 2011 Mr. Carmon Administrative Ethics Paper Privacy and confidentiality are important elements in the work of healthcare professionals. Ethical and legal issues may arise if providers fail to properly handle the protected health information of patients. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 established guidelines for maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of patient data. The guidelines include the procedures that should be followed for the disposal of protected health information. This paper will be concerned with an article on the disposal of protected health information that was published in the June 1, 2011 issue of Managed Care Outlook. In the article, Niedzwiecki (2011) discusses the conditions under which it is appropriate to shred documents that contain protected health information. Niedzwiecki (2011) focuses on the problem of what should be done with paper originals after a patient’s private information has been placed in an electronic format. The basic solution to this problem is to shred sensitive paper documents before disposing of them. However, there is more to this issue, because some paper documents do not need to be disposed of and still others should not be disposed of. Therefore, as Niedzwiecki (2011) proposes, healthcare organizations should have a clearly stated policy regarding when documents should be shredded and when they should not......
