The instructor identifies an industry that interests the students and that has a number of major companies. Potential examples include energy, automobile, banking, and consumer electronics. With the students, the instructor visits the websites of three firms in that industry and together they as much as possible about their stances regarding ethical conduct and social responsibility. The instructor asks the students to identify commonalities and differences across the three firms and develop observations about the likely effectiveness of firms’ effort to promote ethical conduct and social responsibilities based on the websites. Finally, the instructor asks the following questions:

  • Symbolically, what potential role does the Internet serve in helping to promote ethical conduct and social responsibility as evidenced by the websites you visited?
  • What role does financial globalization help in promoting ethical conduct and social responsibility of these firms?
  • How do the websites affect your view of each company from the standpoint of a potential investor? What if you were an investor from a poor country like Haiti?
