GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Answer TEN (10) of the following questions directly and completely in no more than six to seven sentences for each question. Try not to exceed this limit, but at the same time, make sure that your answers are complete enough to be within this range. Too short responses for the question will not get perfect score. Do not write unnecessary introduction to your answers or reinstate the question. If you know the answer to a question, there is no reason why you cannot answer it directly and completely in seven sentences. You may answer in bulleted list, but each point must be written clearly and in complete sentence. Make sure you indicate the question that you are answering by either copying and pasting the question or indicating the question number. You will get substantial deductions if I cannot figure out the question you are trying to answer. Any phrase or statement copied from the course readings must be written within quotation marks or italicized with the corresponding title and page number. Quoting from texts is not a requirement. This applies as well to sources not included in our course readings. Our Simcheck (turnitin) policy applies to the final essay.

Which ethical theory do you think is most commonly used in business today? Provide evidence to support your assertion and give reasons explaining why this theoretical framework is more likely than others to dominate business decisions. Explain the meaning of the right to autonomy. In the context of doing business, what limits do you think there must be to this right? Does the right to autonomy allow business leaders to do anything that they want? Why? The right of private property is often described as a bundle of moral rights.
