You should submit a research paper of no more than 1,500 words of writing (not counting words in the Works Cited page). At least three scholarly (i.e. peer-reviewed) articles required as a minimum for the final paper. The quality of your research will be evaluated as well as the content and argumentation final in your paper.
You should pick a topic relevant to the course material – that is, not only should you choose an issue that arises in the world of economics or business, but it should be such that it can be evaluated morally. Specifically, what I will be looking for are the following two things: (1) how well you argue for your position – I do not want to read a paper that either fails to take a stand on the issue, or simply asserts some view or other, you ought to present an argument with your stand on the issue as conclusion; and (2) that you make use of one (and no more than that!) of the moral theories we cover in the first portion of the course. The most important phrase in (2) was ‘make use of’ – that is, I do not want to read papers which merely mention some theory, but neither explain the theory or why and how it is being used in this case.
