Please read “WeWork:Oil Money and the Challenge of Achieving Carbon Neutrality” and “Frameworks for Ethical Decision-making” and answer the following questions:
WeWork was founded, in part, based on a commitment to social responsibility. Was this commitment ultimately a strength or a weakness? Explain.
On page 8 the author asks “Was WeWork responsible for the actions and reputation of its investors?” Should a company be made to answer for its investors in this way? It is appropriate (or “fair”) for consumers to view a company and its investors as one and the same?
Imagine you’re Linda Cook, WeWork’s chief communications officer. How would you respond to the New York Times’ request for a comment regarding the company’s relationship to Saudi money? In particular, which ethical framework(s) — i.e., consequentialist, duty, or virtue — would you base your response on and why? What, specifically, would you tell the New York Times?
