2. Write an analysis of the role that social responsibility plays in doing business internationally.
To guide your analysis, consider the organizational structures and hierarchies of any organization involved in international business. In your analysis, address the following questions:
o What effect does an organization’s ethical standing, or reputation, have on its business abroad?
o Will any of these philosophical approaches to ethics work in the organization you have in mind? Why or why not?
o How does a particular philosophical approach to ethics reflect on an organization and its managers?
