Review Business Ethics Flashpoint 8.1: Creator/Consumer Balance. This section of the text portrays negative actions by pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, but there have also been positive examples during the COVID-19 pandemic as companies set aside competitive interests to provide testing, equipment, and research in a more collaborative manner.

In your discussion, respond to these questions posed in Flashpoint 8.1:

  • How should a for-profit corporation balance its business needs with the needs of its customers?
  • Lives depend on products created by some companies. Do these companies have a greater responsibility to work towards benefitting the consumer more than themselves?
  • Look at the issue from a Biblical worldview. How would you respond if you were running such a company?

Your thread must explain how you achieve the creator/consumer balance, considering, e.g.,:

  • Profit and return on investment for company owners/shareholders
  • Continuing existence of the company
  • Protecting the intellectual property of the company
  • Needs of patients, practitioners, and society
  • See the Read: The CEOs of Nearly 200 Companies Just Said Shareholder Value is No Longer Their Main Objective
  • Biblical support and guidance for your positions
  • Any other legal and ethical concepts you believe may be relevant
