Every food, clothes, gadget, shoes, and other goods are usually produced by the transnational corporation which controlled by the market. As what Lisa A. Neilson says, “buycotters are identified by their response to the question of whether or not they had deliberately bought certain products for political, ethical, or environmental reasons. In contrast, boycotters were identified using a simple question of whether or not they had boycotted.” So, reflect to the movie “The True Cost”, when one person decide to not purchase products from the fast fashion company, at least we minimize forced labor and interfere the expansion of fast fashion and the market. What the company do to the labor is not only bring a social issue to the people, and the economy, but also on the environment. So when our reaction and movement refuse the production of fast fashion then we support the sustainability in every aspects because as I figure out, in the sense of that movie, there are many chains related to the poverty, profit, business, market, and other issues.
Marketing organizations communicate these values by developing campaigns and programs designed to influence behavior that improves both the consumer's personal welfare and that of society. From providing free leaflets offering "green" tips, to advice on how to safely dispose of electronics, social marketing is fast becoming a competitive advantage in global business.  -The question on everyone’s mind is this – is it worth being socially responsible, then? My opinion is that yes, it is absolutely worth it, largely because business ethics are a given in today’s society. Those corporations that simply chase the bottom line of profits are frowned upon, and those that flout the unspoken code of conduct for businesses are immediately flagged by society.
Many people felt that all power rested with the politicians and businessmen, but the Progressives attempted to undo these problems caused by industrialization. The Progressive movement sought to end the influence of large corporations, provide more rights and benefits to workers, and end the control possessed by party leaders. The Progressive Era was a period in American history in which improving working conditions, exposing corruption, improving the way of life, expanding democracy, and making reforms were the objectives at hand. Woodrow Wilson was the ideal leader to help bring new reforms that could really help the working class, he believed that leaders should make decisions that is at its best interest for the public and during his time as president he really took the time to
Research has found that that over the years capitalism has passed through many phrases which forced capitalists to amend their rules under which they reside. Many developed countries that employ capitalism tend to rely more on tort laws such as strict product liability theory to secure the greatest amount of consumer protection. The reason for having strict liability is because strict product liability can raises standards where the health and safety of the public is at stake and forces manufacturers in a position of responsibility to take extra precautions. Strict product liability theory helps to induce business firms and manufacturers to guarantee product safety as they know they are held liable for injuries caused by their products, which they cannot avoid. Without strict product liability, the reality of the capitalist market tend to be caveat emptor which means “Let the Buyer Beware!” where an injured consumer could not sue the manufacturer and recover damages caused by a defective product.
Due to ongoing increases in growing deficits that contribute to the growing National Debt, there has been continued discussion to implement a balanced budget. There are both positives and negatives for enacting such an amendment that has been laid out by many scholars. Additionally, there has been an alternative to a balanced budget amendment and that is to enact procedural rules. There are two metaphysical arguments against a balanced-budget amendment and that such an amendment would harm the economy. First the Keynesian stabilization policies for economics that centers around changing economic direction in respect to the status of the economy.
The government should also interfere: They should regulate the information that these pharmaceutical company’s provide to doctors. Also making certain “gifts” illegal. Under no circumstances should a pharmaceutical representative be allowed to make contact with doctors without their consent. The most important law I would suggest is making a quota of percentage of which is maximally allowed to be invested in marketing and a minimal for research and development. In a time of hacking the cloud, declare scandals and bank bonuses, doctors have a chance to make their position as the most trusted professional, and deliberately distance themselves from the temptations of the pharmaceutical industry.
Furthermore, Friedberg (2010) implies that ethical standards are themselves fetishized. Thus, this essay will argue that the free trade and ethical movement both have the ability to obscure truths regarding the realities experienced by producers in developing countries. The concept of ethicality within the market-based political movement of fair trade emerged with rising consumer consciousness. Furthermore, increasing globalisation in a predominantly capitalist world has provoked anxiety amongst many. For instance, consumer uncertainty surrounding food production has resulted in anxieties
Many of these theories are incomplete and leave unanswered questions to this day. A macro factor that stands out to me is that the US had this major collapse right at the time when globalism was on the rise. As competition for trade and markets began to expand with the growth of other countries, perhaps the US couldn’t keep up. In a nation where unquestioning loyalty seems to be a value, it probably is unpopular for me to say something like this, but I can’t help seeing this as a contributor. The industrial revolution boomed and then deflated, the higher the rise the farther to fall (Amadeo
Fast food outlet or customers are not concerned that who affected by paying the cost of chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension that are caused by increasing selling of fast food. Information about products / services that allow consumers to be more informed and make sensible choices, are mostly hidden by corporations. So by this way market practice again deviate from classical economical theory, that provide equal access to related information. This unequal access further increase the problem of negative externalities. To eliminate these negative affects, government should make rules and force companies to pay this negative externality cost.
Cipla's generic inexpensive antiretroviral drugs were a true game changer. Lives that were considered lost were being saved. It also talks of the efforts of Western government, working on behalf of industry to hinder and cut off supplies of affordable generic drugs by the means of bi-lateral and multilateral trade agreements which low and middle income countries are placed under enormous pressure to sign. High prices are the only trade off for industries that spend a large amount on R & D to find new medicines. Formation of cartels can also be seen in the movie.
