Crimes That Harm Business versus
Crimes Committed by Business
Which do you believe presents the
greatest threat to civil society: a corporation that commits crimes (e.g.,
murder, environmental crimes, or bribery, etc.), or persons who commit
crimes that harm businesses (e.g., embezzlement, fraud, or larceny, etc.)?
Defend your response, using at least one example from current events.
first identify a
non-traditional or creative way in which a corporation might be punished for
committing a crime.
After viewing the Chinese Imports & Food Safety Video, consider whether U.S. retailers that utilize
products or raw ingredients that are imported from China and that are poorly
regulated should be liable in tort for injuries to consumers who are harmed by
those products. Answer parts 1 and 2 of the following question:
1. Answer part a or part b
a. If U.S. companies should not be liable, then they could be legally
exempt from tort liability. Discuss the consequences of such a policy to U.S.
b. If the U.S. companies should be liable, then those companies would
not be legally exempt from tort liability. Discuss the consequences of such a
policy to U.S. businesses.
2. Regardless of your response to part 1 of this question, assume that U.S.
retailers do have legal liability for defective products. What steps could U.S.
retailers and manufacturers take, when using products imported from China that
would minimize their liability exposure? For example, they could warn consumers
about the potential, though speculative, dangers when using products comprised
of poorly regulated ingredients or components. Given your strategy, what
challenges would exist for U.S. businesses that implemented your strategy?
Discuss the challenges that would exist if your employer (or a fictitious
employer) were to adopt your classmate’s strategy.
