Title: Response To Questions On Ethics
Length: 2 pages (613 Words)
Style: APA


Question 1

The decision made by the mayor to accept the gifts from the organizations was ethical and right since its normal for people to accept gifts when given. Such attitude may result in a good relationship between the organizations and the local people in the city even though they are currently not involved in a contract with the companies. This cautious act created a good relationship with the organizations. This means that in this very case not just the mayor is benefiting from the gifts, but the city might also benefit in future when doing a business with the organizations since a good relationship was created by the mayor. However, when they mayor accepted the gifts offered by the organization the gifts might have acted as bribes to be favored when conducting a business in future. It basically means that the final result of the action did not ethically justify his decision.
