The energy crisis began after OPEC seized oil production because of the, “anger at the United States for aiding Israel.” (Farber, 22) This caused a mass panic amongst Americans and resulted in long waits to get gas and constant fuel outages. Carter was extremely adamant that Americans reduce their consumption of fuel in order to reduce the extent of the energy crisis, at one point suggesting putting heavy penalizing taxes on non-fuel efficient vehicles. Political journalist Nicholas Lemann recalled, “[The energy crisis was] the automotive equivalent to the Depression’s bank runs.”
Introduction The Ford Pinto Car was introduced to the market in 1968 with a gas tank placed between the rear axle and the rear bumper, which makes it very sensitive to explode from accidents even at low speeds. “More than two dozen people were killed or injured in Pinto fires before the company issued a recall to correct the problem” (Bazerman and Tenbrunsel 2011). Ford company adopted the utilitarian approach, by analysing each action taken separately and therefore, valuing the human life and safety in monetary terms. In return, Kant’s ethics of duties should be applied to this case. According to Kant, “categorical imperative” should be applied for every moral issue, and maxims are developed to guide our decisions.

The government often uses eminent domain to seize private property to serve public goods such as building highways and universities with paying fair compensation to the owners. However, whether the government has the right to use eminent domain for non-government purposes, for example, to build up a new pharmaceutical factory, is controversial. Some people consider a new large company as an opportunity to increase taxes and revenues. Nonetheless, in my view, the government should not use eminent domain for non-government use because this action will ruin the private business of the owners, and also lead to inappropriate seizure of private property by powerful politicians and capitalists.
Sany has been luring many of their staffs and one of the employees they lured was John Lanning who was the key engineer behind the crawler cranes manufacturer. Sany targeted Manitowoc's employee John Lanning due to his knowledge of the technology and because of this poaching incident, it has led to following patent and trade secret infringement case between Sany and Manitowoc. For a company like Sany, which has spent a large amount of money on R&D with the intention to be a technological leader in its industry was deeply affected by it. Sany wants to show its competitors that not all Chinese companies are using imitation strategy instead it wants to show that Chinese company is capable to be innovative through investment on R&D. However, due to the ongoing violation of intellectual property rights, it has led to negative publicity with buyers of heavy equipment and other manufacturers.
Nicolas Kristof uses many rhetorical devices to make points in his piece titled, Our Blind Spot about Guns. He compares the attributes of gun safety to the attributes of car safety and attempts to make a point that the government should regulate guns in the same way cars are regulated In this piece, Kristof tries to convince the reader that regulating guns, the same way cars are regulated, will an effective way to decrease the amount of deaths by guns every year. In the beginning of his writing, he lays out a factual calculation of how many Americans died annually before cars were regulated (161). He then uses a rhetorical device called an analogy when he states, “Yet, instead, we built a system that protects us from ourselves.
His company had worked for many years to develop the cutting-edge technology and in 2011, Apple sued Samsung for infringement of patents, trademarks, user interface, and style. Some of the features apple claimed were ‘stolen’ include; methods of handling phone calls and data simultaneously, reducing interference between devices, processing text messages and attachments, and improving network efficiency. Shortly after Samsung countersued claiming infringement of mobile-communications patents. The argument was compared to two children bickering who took who’s idea. The cycle of this lawsuit ended in August 2012, when a court in California ordered Samsung to pay Apple more than one billion dollars in damages for infringement of intellectual property of Appleʼs iPhone and iPad technology and design.
Tesla was denied a dealer license by the Michigan Department of State preventing them from selling direct to the consumer. The law used backs big auto companies, but causes smaller companies like Tesla to suffer. Tesla says, “The sole purpose for
The primary crime that exists in this case is that of fraud. Fraud is “an intentional deception that causes harm to another” (Kubasek, 2016). The owners of Funny Face website, Chris, Matt, and Ian, definitely committed fraud when they switched the PYR to a low cost chemical emulsifier not approved by the FDA and marketed nationally on the radio, newspapers, their website, and Facebook. Novelty Now will also be held responsible for committing fraud since they also knew about the chemical being switched and did nothing to stop this from happening. I believe anyone who is part of the company, such as all the corporate offices of Novelty Now can be held liable for any criminal acts that took place regarding the products they produce and sell.
Furthermore, we are not able to guarantee that the arbitrator is really neutral and we are most likely unable to choose our own. This is an unfair advantage for the employers. An employer wouldn’t need this type of protection if he upholds the rules and treat their employees’
To maintain fair competition in the thousands of businesses and industries throughout the United States, antitrust laws and trade regulations were created. Antitrust laws have been enacted at both the state and the federal level. These laws prohibit unfair competition between individuals and entities, as well as unfair or deceptive practices that may cause harm to consumers. What times of behaviors and actions does the government prohibit? The Sherman Antitrust Act, or the Sherman Act, is a law that was created over a century ago to stop businesses from combining in such a way that may damage competition.
