Analysis of the GE and the Hudson River Cleanup case

Need help with my Business question – I’m studying for my class.

Following your preparation and participation in the class discussion and analysis of the GE and the Hudson River Cleanup case, write up your individual analysis of GE using Carroll’s CSR Framework. If you conduct outside research on PCBs, the EPA, Superfund, or the Hudson River Cleanup be sure to document any sources that are not listed in the course syllabus. Please avoid researching the events that occurred after the case was completed in 2016.

Use Carroll’s CSR Analysis Framework outlined on page 612 of the textbook with the minor changes discussed in class. Your paper should generally conform to the following outline.

Try to select a thesis that will result in a paper that will result in a 3-4 page double-spaced paper. If your paper exceeds five, double-spaced, pages, you will need to do some editing to reduce the length. If you need help with topics, I am willing to help you brainstorm ideas during my office hours.

  1. Thesis of paper – This section will describe the overall issue (sub-issues/minor issues) you will analyze. I recommend you narrowly define the issue to limit the scope of your analysis

  3. A brief description of the relevant stakeholders and their stakes. Make some attempt to group the stakeholders in terms of their side(s) of the issues.

      1. The Rashomon Effect
      2. Moral Hazard and Adverse Selection
      3. Rational ignorance
      4. The election cycle
      5. Misaligned incentives
      6. The tragedy of the commons
      7. Market inefficiencies
      8. Cognitive biases
