International business ethics | Operations Management homework help

Suppose that you are on a plane and the passenger sitting next to you tries to have a conversation with you. You would like to be nice but don’t want to disclose too much information about yourself (such as your name). He or she asks: “What do you do?” How would you answer this question?

  1. On Ethics: Assume that you work for a New Zealand company exporting a container of kiwis to Azerbaijan or Haiti. The customs official informs you that there is a delay in clearing your container through customs, and it may take a month. However, if you are willing to pay an “expediting fee” of US $200, he will try to make it happen in one day. What would you do?
  2. On Ethics: Most developed economies have some illegal immigrants. The United States has the largest number with between 10 and 11 million. Without legal US identification (ID) documents, they cannot open bank accounts or buy houses. Many US firms have targeted this population, accepting the ID issued by their native countries and selling them products and services. Some Americans are furious with these business practices. Other Americans suggest that illegal immigrants represent a growth engine in an economy with relatively little growth elsewhere. How would you participate in this debate?
