Case Scenario 1:
You may remember hearing about Martha Stewart’s criminal conviction related to her sale of stock in a friend’s company based on an insider tip that the friend was selling his shares of his own company’s stock. (She actually went to jail not for the insider trading itself but for lying about what happened and her reasons for selling her shares of the stock.)
Consider this situation from each perspective of egoism, utilitarianism, duty-based ethics, and virtue ethics as you answer the following questions and give reasons for your answers based on each of those ethical theories.
Case Scenario 2:
Suppose you are opposed to the use of child labor in manufacturing because you think it is important for children to have an opportunity to go to school and play. Laws in the United States regulate child labor, but some countries allow it. In some situations around the world, a family depends on the child’s earnings to be able to afford to eat.
