Business Ethics

A consortium of Japanese companies used code names and secret meetings to rig bids for dozens of types of auto parts imported to the United
States in a decade-long conspiracy that may have cost US consumers hundreds of millions of dollars, US officials have revealed.
Unveiling what the Justice Department said is its largest-ever criminal anti-trust investigation, US Attorney General Eric Holder Jr said nine
companies had agreed to plead guilty in the case and pay roughly US$740 million (NZ$893m) in fines.
The companies included Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hitachi Automotive Systems and Mitsubishi Electric. Two executives also pleaded guilty, and
one will face a one-year prison term.
Holder described a massive and complex conspiracy as executives conferred in the United States and Japan, sometimes retreating to “remote
locations,” to manipulate prices for windshield wipers, radiators, power-window motors and other parts that were sent from overseas to be included
in new cars assembled in the United States.
The parts entered the supply chains of almost every major US-based automaker, including Detroit’s Big Three and the US subsidiaries of
Japanese firms including Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.
US Justice Department officials said they could not estimate how much the conspiracy cost consumers. But they said that over as many as 13
years, it affected prices on more than US$5 billion worth of auto parts used in more than 25 million vehicles — or about US$200 per car.
Combined, the companies had enough pricing power to divvy up sales, co-ordinate bids, and “stabilise and maintain” prices.
Holder described the companies as divided into several “cartels” that “targeted US manufacturing, US businesses and US consumers.”
“Americans paid more for their cars. And American companies … were victims,” Holder said of the investigation, which is still ongoing after several
years. “As we have uncovered each auto part conspiracy, we have continued to find more and more parts that are involved.”
Including the fines announced today (NZ time), US officials over the past two years have levied US$1.6 billion (NZ$1.93b) in penalties against a
total of 20 auto-parts firms and sent 16 executives to jail.
Trade and industry firms and company executives largely declined to comment on the case.
Honda North America released a brief statement saying it expected all of its suppliers “to observe the law.”
The US auto-parts sector has been hit hard in recent years by the spread of auto-supply manufacturing around the world, the ability of auto
companies to source parts from an expanding number of countries, and trade restrictions in places such as China that have limited US companies’
ability to export. Once done in house by automakers such as GM and Ford, auto-parts manufacturing was steadily outsourced beginning in the
1990s.
Over the past few years, and particularly since a trade agreement with Canada and Mexico was signed, US auto-parts imports have grown rapidly,
topping US$125 billion last year for engines, tyres and other components.
Japan has been a major supplier, sending about US$17 billion in parts to the United States last year.
The case comes at a sensitive time in US-Japanese economic relations, as US officials try to further open a Japanese market that is at once rich
— the country has the third-largest economy in the world — and considered difficult for important US industries to crack.
Japan recently joined free-trade talks with the United States, but some labor and manufacturing companies worry that those discussions will
produce only limited access to a market that has struggled for decades to fully open.
Scott Hammond, deputy assistant attorney general for the antitrust division, said the case “should resonate in boardrooms around the world” and
discourage future efforts to manipulate prices.

Measures of Central Tendency
The Mean. The mean or the average is a measure of central tendency that offers a general picture of the data without unnecessarily inundating one with each of the observations in a data set. The mean or average of a set of say, 10 observations is the sum of the 10 individual observations divided by 10 (the total number of observations).
The Median. The median is the central item in a group of observations when they are arrayed in either an ascending or a descending order.
The Mode. In some cases, a set of observations would not lend itself to a meaningful representation through either the mean or the median, but can be signified by the most frequently occurring phenomenon.
Measures of Dispersion
Range. Range refers to the extreme values in a set of observations.
Variance. The variance is calculated by subtracting the mean from each of the observations in the data set, taking the square of this difference, and dividing the total of these by the number of observations.
Standard Deviation. The standard deviation, which is another measure of dispersion for interval and ratio scaled data, offers an index of the spread of a distribution or the variability in the data.
Other Measures of Dispersion. When the median is the measure of central tendency, percentiles, deciles, and quartiles become meaningful. Just as the median divides the total realm of observations into two equal halves, the quar¬tile divides it into four equal parts, the decile into 10, and the percentile to 100 equal parts. The percentile is useful when huge masses of data, such as the GRE or GMAT scores, are handled. When the area of observations is divided into 100 equal parts, there are 99 percentile points. Any given score has a probability of .01 that it will fall in any one of those points. If John’s score is in the 16th percentile, it indicates that 84% of those who took the exam scored better than he did, while 15% did worse.
Oftentimes we are interested in knowing where we stand in comparison to others — are we in the middle, in the upper 10 or 25%, or in the lower 20 or 25%, or where? For instance, if in a company-administered test, Mr. Chou scores 78 out of a total of 100 points, he would be unhappy if he were in the bottom 10% among his colleagues (the test-takers), but would be reasonably pleased if he were in the top 10%, despite the fact that his score remains the same. The central tendency median and the percentile he falls in can determine his standing in relation to the others.
The measure of dispersion for the median, the interquartile range, consists of the middle 50% of the observations (i.e., observations excluding the bottom and top 25% quartiles). The interquartile range could be very useful when comparisons are to be made among several groups. For instance, telephone companies can compare long-distance charges of customers in several areas by taking samples of customer bills from each of the cities to be compared.

THE PROCESS ESSAY

In my class, your Process essay topic can be about anything you do currently or did in the past that can be broken down into stages or steps, so your imagination is the limit. Whatever you choose, do try to be as specific as possible. Contrary to what you may think, being overly general causes papers to be too short, and being specific helps them become a more proper length because the details are concrete and easy to describe rather than vague generalities.
SUGGESTIONS FOR PROCESS TOPICS:
1) Instruct the reader on making a fairly complex recipe (but don’t just give the recipe; fill in on how you came to learn this, why it is special, when you serve it, and so on. Recipes alone are boring.)
2) Instruct the reader as to how you perform a specific task at work
3) Recall the preparations for a big specific event in your life, such as a wedding, reunion, holiday celebration, graduation, birthday party
4) Illustrate the job, military, or college application procedures
5) Teach a hobby, craft, or home improvement project that you’ve done, such as refinishing furniture, painting the house, making a garment or piece of jewelry, changing the oil in the car…
6) Describe a trip you took if it involved several stops or phases
7) Describe the stages of learning to drive or ride a horse
8) Serving on a jury (stages from getting the notice to the final verdict)
9) Describe the steps involving computers or putting something together

Analytical research project

will be completed in stages that span the entire semester
The goal of the Analytical Research Project is to give you the opportunity to produce a piece of academic writing on a topic of your choice that fits within the scope of our course theme. Furthermore, the process of planning and writing this researched, academic analysis will enable you to further develop interests that will guide you through the assignments during the rest of the semester.
The authors of Writing Analytically suggest that researched writing is a process that requires time, energy, and patience. Accordingly, the Analytical Research Project contains five steps, each building on the previous step. Collectively, the steps of this project constitute nearly half of your final course grade and will be the driving focus of the semester.
Though maintaining friendships may look a bit different in the 21st century when compared to previous eras, it is a timeless pursuit that drives our lives. For this assignment, you’ll need to think about the different ways we establish and maintain our friendships, and always think about the underlying question behind it all: Why do friendships matter so much? Your task here will be to shed light on how and why we pursue non-familial relationships and their small and large scale impacts.
As we have discussed, analysis is a key intellectual skill. It requires careful attention to detail and patient and methodical investigation. When we analyze something we take it apart and examine the pieces. Often we don’t know what conclusions we’ll come to until we have completed this process and put the pieces back together again. That putting-back-together process is called interpretation. Thus, in writing an analytical essay, you probably won’t know what your thesis is until you have spent a lot of time developing your analysis. You would be well advised to start on this project as soon as possible.
Purpose:
Your overall goal is to use your primary sources to enter a thoughtful investigation of a reality that allows your readers to consider it in a new way, to understand it more, or to understand it differently than they might originally have done. Your job is to convince your audience of the validity of your way of seeing things, using your analysis of the details and context to support your thesis.
Primary Source Descriptions (10 points)
Begin the research process by looking for potential sources that illustrate your point of focus. Using strategies from our class discussion as guides, write one-paragraph descriptions (don’t interpret during this step) of two different primary sources that you might analyze for your Analytical Research Project. Following each description, write at least three open-ended questions that you might ask about each primary source. Make sure you include working urls.
Primary Source Descriptions will be collected at the start of class on Thursday 9/12
Primary Source Analysis (20 points)
You will craft an analysis of one of your primary sources in the same way as we have done in class. Use this writing to investigate the meanings within the source. Be sure you’re not just describing again.
The Primary Source Analysis will be collected at the start of class on Thursday 9/19
Secondary Source Annotations (20 points)
Next, using the research skills you learned from our library database instruction, locate secondary source materials that will inform and enhance your understanding of your research topic. Then, write annotations for two secondary sources. Each annotation should consist of three parts:
1. A paragraph that summarizes the author’s argument. You can find information about writing effective summaries at http://english.marion.ohio-state.edu/summary.htm.
2. A paragraph that evaluates the source’s usefulness within the larger context of the course. In the evaluation paragraph, explain how this source fits into the conversation you are developing around your research topic. Also, explain how this secondary source helps to answer your research questions.
3. Correct MLA Works Cited citations.
Secondary Source Annotations will be collected at the start of class on Thursday 10/3
Secondary Source Integration (20 points)
This component asks you to revisit your work in the Primary Source Analysis by asking you to extend or rethink your analytical claims. The primary objectives of this assignment are (1) to find timely, useful, compelling, and credible secondary sources and (2) to integrate this secondary evidence seamlessly and effectively into your own writing.
From your secondary sources, select at least one direct quotation and one paraphrase and correctly integrate them. Make sure you completely introduce the sources, correctly quote and paraphrase from them, and then follow up with the needed explanations.
Secondary Source Integrations will be collected at the start of class on Thursday 10/17
The Research Conference (10 points)
You must prepare for and attend a required, scheduled Research Conference where you will meet with me in my office (Founders 2049) to discuss your plans to extend, revise, and finalize your work up to this point.
The purpose of this Research Conference is not to check your work. Instead, think of it as a working conference where together we can carefully examine your research questions and thesis statement for your paper. The more prepared you are for the conference, the more productive it will be.
Please bring TWO printed copies of this document to your Research Conference. Showing up to the conference late or without the assigned materials will not earn you any points.
The Analytical Research Paper (150 points)
Finally, write a 6 to 8 page Analytical Research Paper that directly builds on the research you have completed and contributes to the academic conversations that address your topic. In this paper, develop a complex thesis that makes a claim about the ways that messages are conveyed to audiences through your primary source material. Support your claims with evidence from your primary and secondary sources. Include a Works Cited page and follow MLA format.
The successful Analytical Research Paper will …
• Contain a title on the first page that reflects the complexity of the paper’s general purposes.
• Identify primary sources and analyze their messages.
• Include a complex thesis that makes a thoughtful and insightful claim about how the primary sources reveal something interesting about the role of friendships in our lives.
• Integrate at least 3 secondary sources in ways that account for aspects of the academic conversation that are relevant to the paper’s thesis.
• Include an appropriately formatted (MLA) Works Cited page that cites all primary and secondary sources as well as other references discussed in the paper. In addition, all URLs to primary and secondary sources must work properly and authors/creators of sites, images, and video or audio clips must be identified in the Works Cited list.
• Contain few sentence-level errors and few lapses in tone. Paper follows academic conventions discussed in class.
The Analytical Research Paper will be collected at the start of class on Tuesday 12/3
