Business Ethics Forum Luncheon, Oct 23

We will be evaluating the recent decisions by Home Depot and Lowes. Each retailer experienced incidents where a customer ostensibly found a “noose” tied at the end of the bulk rope. In response, both retails chains categorically decided to discontinue selling bulk rope across their stores nationwide, just as hurricane season was setting and customers needed rope to secure belongings in the high winds.

The case will explore three topics:

  • What constitutes “cooperation” with the actions of another person?
  • How do commercial decisions support or offend the principle of the common good?
  • How do commercial decisions support or offend the principle of justice?

The case will be distributed before the luncheon, but you can reference these articles in advance:
