She claimed that when she called her office to check her messages, Bacanovic had left her a message advising her to sell her stock because the stock had feel below $60 a share and supposedly that was their prior agreement of doing so (Leite, 2012). Stewart claimed that she filed something called a “stop-loss” order, which was meant to say that if the shares had fell below $60, she would pull out of the company. Yet, Stewart’s justification that she gave to investigators about why she sold her shares and the “stop-loss” order did not match the testimony that Bacanovic’s assistant (Donald Faneuil) gave (Leite, 2012). According to the assistant, who personally handled selling Stewart’s shares, he claimed that Bacanovic wanted him to lie about a “stop-loss” order and that he received money bribes for doing so. Now this information was taken with a grain of salt the second time around because initially he lied to investigators about how Stewart did indeed have a “stop-loss” order. He stated to prosecutors that he told Stewart this when Waskal and his family were backing out of their shares and Waskal advised that she do the same. During questioning, Stewart claimed that the allegations of her knowing about Waskal selling his shares, were false accusations (“United States of America vs Martha Stewart and Peter Bacanovic”,

While more than 10.7 million people were enslaved throughout American history, the story of just one plantation can paint the picture of what life was like for most slaves (Gates Jr.).

In the beginning of the book Mary was stuck in a room with no windows and never got outside, but in the movie she was allowed out of her room and did go outside to play. I thought that the movie did a better job with this then the book did. The book just kind of said this and then moved on with the story. The movie gave a little bit more detail on the subject. Her parents died by a large earthquake in the movie, but in the book they both died along with other people in their kingdom from cholera, and that is why Mary had to go stay with her uncle Mr. Craven. I don’t think the way her parents died really affected the story; it just changed the reason why she had to go live at Misselwaite Manor. When Mary was going to meet Mrs. Medlock at the train station,

Unethical behaviors in business affect everyone since you either work in the field or are a consumer of its services. Unfortunately, almost every company usually has individuals who act unethically whether it is for their personal benefit or for the sake of the company they work for. Unethical behaviors in business might be as simple as using company property or funds for personal gain to inside trading and financial fraud. According to The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, nearly one third of business professionals feel pressured to compromise their ethical standards and are increasingly pushed towards unethical behavior. Moreover, “misconduct is common and accepted by business services professionals, the integrity of entire economic systems is at risk”, states Jordan A. Thomas, partner and chair of the Whistleblower Representation Practice at Labaton Sucharow law firm. In fact, making money at any cost is all what matters, while doing what is right and abiding by the law is not. That said, as a corporate finance student and a business administration major, it is as interesting as important for me to learn about what is considered as unethical in business, in addition to who is enforcing the federal securities laws, proposing securities rules, and regulating the securities industry.

According to the website, the Nassm site states that sports agent has to have, “Respect. Fairness, and Courtesy. The sport manager should treat colleagues with respect, courtesy, fairness, and good faith.” I believe that’s it’s true because i wouldn’t think i would want to be treated ugly.
The American corporate system has long faced ethical concerns amongst the citizens of the United States. Often, corporate greed undermines morality and often furthers an agenda that puts profit ahead of people. A prime historical example of this case in ethical obligations is the case of the Enron Scandal of 2001. The CEOs of this Scandal hid millions of dollars of debt from their balance sheets and were able to extort money from shareholders based on surging stock prices, fueled solely on false pretenses propagated by the CEO (citation). This is a modern example of an ethical lapse by a corporate model catering to the public. This same notion of moral wrong-doing is equivalent to the movies Scarface and Double Indemnity.
