Ethical Issues in International Marketing

Corporate governance, responsibility, intellectual property rights, and corruption all fall under the ethical obligations experienced by multinational enteprises today. Whether following the most ethical route in business dealings matters in the long run is, in many ways, a difficult question. Historically, the answer has depended on the environment and outcomes. Nineteenth century textile mills in the United States, for instance, flagrantly violated today’s standards for workers’ rights (including living wages, maximum weekly working hours, and safe working conditions). However, they did much to move U.S. industrialization forward.

Today, one issue concerning corporate ethics is the divide between “first world” and less developed countries. Should emerging economies follow the same course experienced by the United States and Europe in their industrial history? Or should they be aided and, on occasion, forced by developed nations to skip the mishaps of the Western experience, and industrialize under more stringent modern-day standards?

  10. 10/9/2016 In my estimation, michaelczinkota.com does a good job of handling subject matter of this type. While frequently intentionally contentious, the material posted is in the main well researched and stimulating.

  11. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
