MGMT 520 Legal, Political and Ethical Dimensions of Business
Week 6 DQ 1 Restraint of Trade and Antitrust (Graded)
Look at problem 25-14 found on page 718 of your eBook. We will begin our discussion this week by working through this “credit card” problem to help us understand “per se” violations and how they affect how antitrust suits are brought and proven. To get started, let's answer the following questions about the problem:
Was Visa's and Mastercard's conduct illegal under the Sherman Act? Under the Clayton Act? Why or why not?
Week 6 DQ 2 Consumer Protections (Graded)
In Week 1, we covered ethics and the role law and politics play with it. As we have discussed this week, the government has attempted to protect consumers against unethical loan practices, collection of debt practices, and product costs will continue to make it more difficult to be profitable.
To start our discussion this week – let's review Case problem 26-17 on page 761 of your eBook. In addition to the question presented by the problem:
1. What responsibilities did Easton and Source One Associates, Inc. have to the individuals and businesses that were the targets of these information requests?
2. What responsibilities did the clients of Easton and Source One Associates, Inc. have to (a) its clients that made the information/inquiry requests and (b) to the individuals and businesses that were the targets of these information requests?
