Easel 68: Dual Market Misgivings: When Playing Both Sides is Wrong

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Did you ever wonder if any ethical problems arise when corporations market and profit from the sale of one product that is designed as a remedy for another product they also sell? In my paper, I talk about big tobacco, and how the alternative tobacco and smoking-cessation tools industries have grown into a substitute for cigarettes, and a profitable one at that. Should companies be deploying for-profit products at both ends of such a chain, and if they are, what does this tell us about their real motives (do they REALLY want anyone to quit for good?) Explore these questions and more as you read into my paper "Dual Market Misgivings.
