Final Exam Date/Location (05.24.16)

Probably you've already looked up this information for yourself, but in case you haven't: The final exam in the course will be held at 2:00 PM, Friday, May 27th in GEOL 261.

Up from the Archive: The Corporation (2003) (05.09.16)

Since I'll be making mention of their views a few lectures hence--and since, in my experience, it is bound to come up--I include below the 2003 documentary film The Corporation, written by UBC law professor Joel Bakan and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. As it happens, I don't endorse the main argument presented in the film, but it certainly is an interesting thesis and definitely worth considering in connection with arguments from Peter French and Patricia Werhane concerning the purported moral agency of corporations.

Nearly all of those readings are included in the following textbook:

Poff, Deborah C., ed. Business Ethics in Canada, 4th Edition, (Pearson Prentice-Hall, 2005).

So students who want the convenience of having the readings in book form may wish to (but are not obliged to) purchase the Poff anthology.

Earlier versions of this text have been used in previous years, so, if you are buying used, check to make sure that you are buying the 4th Edition.
