Do you consider “Made in the USA” labels to be deceptive advertising?

  Do you consider “Made in the USA” labels to be deceptive advertising? 

Many consumers are becoming more critical about the products they purchase and will often closely examine a product before buying it. The way a product is packaged and labelled can have a big impact on a consumer’s decision to purchase it. Using the material covered in Chapter 45 of the textbook, discuss the following points in your post:

  • Do you consider “Made in the USA” labels to be deceptive advertising? 
  • Should the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have the right to regulate the tobacco industry?
  • Search your home, a local store or the internet to locate a product where you feel the label omits important information or appears to be misleading. Post a picture of the product’s label here in the discussion forum (or post a picture of the product’s label from the manufacturer’s website). Discuss your thoughts on why the label is misleading or deceptive. How does this make you feel as a consumer?

Business Law (Legal And Ethical)

Business Law (Legal And Ethical)

A global company, by definition, will have workers in different countries. It is to be expected that there will be differences—different countries have different laws regulating how many hours workers can work, minimum required age for employment, and wages. A challenge that frequently comes up for managers in a global company is how to navigate the ethical questions that arise.

 

Case Example: You are the CEO of WeGlobal, Inc., a large company interested in expanding globally. One country you consider expanding into routinely employs children as young as 6 years old and often pays workers a salary of $1 a day. In that country, this is not illegal because there are no child labor laws and $1 a day is the average rate of pay for local workers in your industry. Additionally, by expanding, you know you can keep prices low for consumers and make a large profit for your company. Should you expand into this country? Choose a position, and discuss the following:

 

  • FOR argument: Would you be for expanding into this country? Why? How is expanding into this country an ethical decision?  
  • AGAINST argument: Would you be against expanding into this country? Why? How is refraining from expanding into this country a wise business decision?
