Fred should not just go to Wally because he has to go to him first. Wally did not want Fred going to anyone else about the issues that surfaced while designing the new process because then other people would discover the many unethical decisions that were made by the company. If I were Wally, I would have engineers evaluate the safety of the process design right after they finished designing the system. The safety of the plant is the most important part of building a new design. Wally did not tell the truth about maintaining the design with the cheaper controls. They used a poor alternate plan to try and resolve their many mistakes they made during the designing process. Instead of going through with the alternate plan and utilizing a manually operated control system, he should have stopped production and replaced the cheaper controls with the more expensive controls.

The movie Capote (2005) posed many ethical issues in relation to the way qualitative information was conducted. The first of which being the study, or research design, was not approved or monitored by a review board, ethics board or review committees.

Case Study #1 Case 1: In the past, Monsanto has had many ethical issues like high performance standards that can cause employees to make unethical and illegal decisions and not owning up to hazards around them. However, Monsanto has been striving to enforce their code of ethics and has spent more time trying to become more socially responsible to the environment. For Monsanto to create an ethical culture, he would have to be proactive in anticipating, planning and acting to avoid potential ethical crisis’ (Thorne, Ferrell, & Ferrell, 2008).
The story of Erin Brockovich is indeed one concerning levels of ethical dilemmas. What Erin Brockovich went through in the entire sphere of her job at the law firm with Ed Masry and her case concerning actions of PG&E, depicts quantum of all of the five ethical principles in one jock combined. However, what is of grave appreciation and instrumental value that how she and the people around her, knowingly or unknowingly, portrayed vivid views on personal ethics and contradictions towards internal believes and motives with such brilliance and articulate. Business Ethics itself focuses on two things and two things only, which are everyone has the right to pursue their dream and no one has the right to obstruct anyone else’s progression towards
