Discuss a case study about yahoo in china
Choose ONE of the following cases and follow the specific instructions for the case. In all cases, students must provide 3 separate references to the book chapter (or previous chapters), and you will be evaluated in terms of how well you incorporate these references. For example, if you merely provide a quote to speak for you, your reference will count for less than if you discuss a specific argument or issue in the chapter and
apply it to the case. You may even return to chapters 1 – 3 and apply specific theories.
However, be sure to explain the theory before you apply it. You do not have to write in essay format, but can number your responses. Just make sure that you have 3 references to the book and that your paper is edited. Provide as complete a response as you can to the questions. NOTE: ALL CASES AND QUESTIONS ARE FROM THE BOOK. YOU DO NOT NEED OUTSIDE SOURCES FOT THE CASE STUDY. If you
refer only to our textbook, just cite the author name and page number at the end of the sentence or paragraph you quote or paraphrase. If you do use outside sources, you need to cite at the end of sentences and paragraphs, but you also need a bibliography.
Quote sparingly. The rule is: only quote when you want to comment directly on the content of the quote. Also, the parentheses should come outside quotation marks–if you have them–but before the period.
1. Case 5.1, Yahoo in China. Answer questions 1 – 7 on page 229 (the questions that go along with the case). For number 5, make sure you explain the issue about whether corporations are moral agents as discussed in the chapter before providing a response.
2. Case 5.2 Drug Dilemmas. Answer questions 1 – 7 on pp. 231 – 232. In your answers,
you MUST refer to at least 2 of the moral theories discussed in week 1. You should explain and apply those 2 theories as part of a response. For example, for #4, you can look at issues of justice discussed in chapter 3. Or, for #5, you could look at this question from the point of view of Utilitarianism, Kant, or other moral theories and decide which has the better argument.
For these questions, not all questions will have long responses, and I will look at the case study overall: do you do a thorough job analyzing the case in terms of what you read in the book. And most importantly, As will be awarded only to those case studies that show, overall, that they have read and understand the key issues and arguments in the book and that your responses are based on what you have learned from the book/course thus far. Your answers shouldn't all be "off the top of your head."
Remember, this isn't a discussion board where you will briefly refer back to the book. It is an analysis of a case based on your understanding of what you have read thus far.
