Read the following short scenario. Then select the response that best describes your
views.
A food company discovered a formula for children’s orange juice that contains water, sugar, Vitamin C,
and artificial coloring. It is much less expensive to produce than pure orange juice and its use will help the
company to be more competitive in the marketplace. The president of the company refused to market the
product unless it contained at least 10 percent pure orange juice. The real juice was added and the product
marketed under the name Purity Orange Juice. It was a great success and sales were even better than
anticipated.

stress level fell, and the accuracy of the tax returns went up.

Cicely is a reporter for the local newspaper. She wrote a positive human interest story about the mayor
visiting an elementary school and reading stories to the children. However, when her editor sent the
story back to her it looked very different. Now the story is critical of the mayor for wasting his time with
unimportant public appearances while urgent city business goes undone. The editor told her that the story
was changed because the newspaper's editorial board favors a different candidate in the next mayoral
election.

Mr. Burton owned a local hamburger franchise and business was good. It was Mr.
Burton's practice to give away, at the close of business each night, the extra burgers
that had been made that hadn't been sold. He told his staff, "My customers should get
the benefit. It's better than throwing them away and wasting food." Kent, who recently
started working there part-time after school, thought it was a great idea and soon some
of his friends were showing up at closing time every night to reap the rewards of free
burgers. Kent enjoyed the popularity and always made sure that there were plenty of
burgers left over.

Several months ago, Marion purchased a two-chair, unisex hair salon in a nice area of the city. Business
was bad even though Marion distributed flyers to the houses surrounding her shop and advertised in the
local paper. The few customers who did come in were local people from the neighborhood and they
shared the local gossip with Marion while she worked on their hair. To keep her customers entertained,
Marion began repeating to other customers the stories, tidbits and gossip she was being told. In a matter
of months, Marion 's telephone was ringing off the hook with people calling for appointments. Business
improved, Marion prospered, and the new clients were entertained by the “dirt” being dished about others
in the neighborhood.
