After reading through Judy Wicks’ memoir “Good Morning, Beautiful Business,”
how would you characterize her approach to business, from a theoretical perspective (consider the theories about the social responsibility we learned in class earlier this semester)?
Why do you think so?
How does Judy view business’s responsibilities to each of the various stakeholders (employees, government, consumers, community, natural environment, etc.), in terms of the concepts/readings/films we covered in class?
What ethical principles, in your opinion, seem to capture Judy’s behaviors during the course of her business career?
Give examples and direct quotes from Judy’s book to illustrate your points.
Finally, how does Judy see the local living economy movement solving some of our social problems? Do you agree or disagree with her, and why or why not?
