...DBForum #2 Rachel Suleski BUSI 301-B03 Case Study: Does Not Forbid Is it morally, ethically, or Biblically wrong for Christians to turn to declare bankruptcy? No. Bankruptcy in the Bible is mostly dealt with caring for the poor, which is not Carl’s situation. Bankruptcy laws in our country go a long way toward balancing the needs of both lender and borrower. The goal is to reduce the losses incurred by both lender and creditor. The creditor holds reasonable rights towards the debtor. (Bankruptcy, 2013) With Biblical precedence our bankruptcy laws have the benevolent intent that the debtor can recover from his hardships and receive a “fresh start”. The Bible does not prohibit all borrowing. Jesus’ testimony regarding borrowing and lending settles the validity of the issue. He declared in Matthew 5:42: “Give to the one who ask you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Specifically looking at Carl’s matter, the Bible does warn against not paying back debts. “The wicked borrows and doesn’t pay back, the righteous is gracious and gives.” (Psalms 37:21) “Owe no man anything, but to love one another” (Romans 13:8), living in bondage to the financiers of this world system should not be away of life. We should not be enslaved to lenders. Carl’s creditors have the right to pursue debt collection; he being the debtor should pursue a lawsuit in an attempt to collect any available cash or assets to satisfy the debt (Create, 2013). His actions prove......

...house. They’re a little older than you, and y’all are sitting on the floor playing cards. Your friend brings out an alcohol bottle and you have never touched alcohol before. They offer you some, what do you do? You use critical thinking to determine the right thing to do. If you use critical thinking the proper way, you would turn down the offer. Reading, writing, and critical thinking are things we all use in everyday life. Reading can build our vocabulary and train our brain for bigger books. Since reading enhances our vocabulary, it gives us amazing words we can use while writing an essay. It is good to learn how to write an essay or paper for that matter because later on in life you might have to write a paper for a job opening, a law suit, etc. Most of all critical thinking is something that starts with reading and writing. It takes critical thinking for us to figure what book to read or what to write about in an essay. These three subjects are all related to each other and things we use in everyday life....

It has been influence through my own personal reading of scripture, that's the blueprint of my life, so I can see the meaning of the laws that make society. Referring to the meaning of the law means referring to its origins. Thats why this article did not change my answers.  4. Do you believe in absolute truth?  Is there more than one way/religion to understanding absolute truth about God and the meaning of life?

Christ told him to do that He must give up his possessions to the poor, and come follow Him to inherit eternal life.

...Regina Vazquez BUSI 645 Individual Assignment #3 November 20, 2014   Discretionary benefits are an important commodity to both employees and employers. Today, it is expected to have some type of leave program and companies, although not required by law to have them, use these benefits to attract the best talent. They are also a way of rewarding good performance. Employees’ use of paid time off gives them the chance to rest and relax without having to worry about decreased pay. They then come back recharged and ready to excel, which benefits the company. “Most firms that provide high-quality benefits do so because they think it is the right thing to do and allows them to maintain a competitive edge with improved recruitment, retention, productivity, and morale” (Perrin et. Al, 2007, p. 1098). The problem lies with having a program that is flexible for the employees but yet doesn’t interfere with company operations. Abuse of leave programs creates an environment of mistrust and unexpected absences can cause delays and more work for co-workers. Firms must consider the many factors, such as number of employees, ages, and the type of work, when deciding what type of leave program to have. There is not a one size fits all design. For the employer, their ultimate goal is to have a leave program that prioritizes the organization’s goals first. Most companies have a traditional leave program whereas leave is separated into vacation days, sick days, and personal days. Vacation...

...short-run economic profits are enough to encourage entry because there is no cost to entering the industry, and some economic profit is better than none. Zero economic profit in the long run implies normal returns to the factors of production, including the labor and capital of the owner of the firm. So even when economic profit falls to zero, the firm will be doing as well as it could in any other industry, and then the owner will be indifferent between staying in the industry or exiting. 6. At the beginning of the twentieth century, there were many small American automobile manufacturers. At the end of the century, there were only three large ones. Suppose that this situation is not the result of lax federal enforcement of antimonopoly laws. How do you explain the decrease in the number of manufacturers? (Hint: What is the inherent cost structure of the automobile industry?) Automobile plants are highly capital-intensive, and consequently there are substantial economies of scale in production. So, over time, the automobile companies that produced larger quantities of cars were able to produce at lower average cost. They then sold their cars for less and eventually drove smaller (higher cost) companies out of business, or bought them to become even larger and more efficient. At very large levels of production, the economies of scale diminish, and diseconomies of scale may even occur. This would explain why more than one manufacturer......

I do believe that management err when they established the bonus system. The new system caused a conflict of interest as the doctors received a direct personal benefit from their actions of raising the index to receive larger bonuses. I don’t believe the bonus system is immoral, but the actions of the doctors were immoral and illegal. The hospital could have developed an ethics training program for the doctors to understand the company’s ethical standards and the issues could have been avoided. 2. I believe the bonus system created a response of unintended organizational abuse as the system caused a moral dilemma for the doctors and they were unethical and illegal in their acts. I believe the abuse was unintentional by the organization and was abused by the doctors. The bonus system could be improved by not linking the bonuses to the index rather linking the bonuses to performance standards instead; this would prevent the moral dilemma of artificially inflating the index.
