Comments
Is Greed Good? Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas in the 1987 movie Wall Street, tells us that "greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works." But should corporations really be concerned only with shareholder wealth maximization, or do they need to take into account a larger group of stakeholders? Do managers have the right to make moral decisions on behalf of shareholders? Do firms have a moral responsibility to pay a "fair" amount of taxes? Are corporate social responsibility and profit maximization really incompatible? These are some of the questions we will try to answer in this freshmen seminar.This is the recitation for companion twice weekly lecture.

  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
