Answer Q1: The lesson implied in the story is that greed can blind a personís vision to such an extent that he stops thinking rationally. All the personís abilities are incapacitated by his lust for a small material benefit when he could use his very strengths to perform other useful and beneficial activities. The core idea is that when we run after petty and insignificant benefits then our vision becomes blurred and we are doing our own harm while we think that we are acting in our favor. To be successful in life one has to think big and also have a big heart to forgo small material benefits. Otherwise the monkey approach will keep you far from a mall goal on one hand while handicap you from pursuing other goals in life.

Answer Q2: The quality of a good leader is that he takes decisions based on rationalism and will always act above his own personal interests when it involves the interests of other people or the people under his supervision. Firing Amie without any justifiable reason is not just wrong ethically but is also very unprofessional. You can not expect to become a good leader by taking decisions on the whims of your superiors without any rational and good reason. Even though economic conditions are bad or there are issues at home, firing Amie would hurt my conscience and affect my work performance as I become complacent. In the worst case scenario, if I am unsuccessful in getting the attention of my Bossís Boss and even if get fired, I would still hold my head high and find satisfaction in the fact that short term benefits have not swayed my regard for ethical principles. Sticking to such a strong value system would make me satisfied at heart and also respectable in front of others.

Answer Q3: The Bankís service is ethical as well as morally sound. It is not a zero sum gain since both the customer and the Bank are benefiting from the new service. There could be some argument found in the fact that since people are spending more due to the prevailing economic conditions and are keeping less money in their accounts, the Bank is forcibly and tactfully withholding customerís money. But since the customers have freedom to accept or reject the service of Bank, the Bank itself can not be blamed. Furthermore the explanations put forward by the Bank of America show that there is mutual benefit of the Bank and its customers in this service and not the Bank alone.

Answer Q4: Shepís actions could be analyzed against the two set ethical standards i.e. the formalism and consequentialism. While the later approach differentiates between ethical and unethical on the basis of being fundamentally right and wrong, the former approach relies upon the results of an action to decide upon the merits of ethics. In Shepís case the consequentialistís approach is more appropriate since his intentions were to unmask the truth about people who acted as if they were omniscient. Therefore Shep acted rightfully all along the way and the resolution was also quite satisfactory since it would serve as a reminder to people in future about the true efforts of Shep to achieve his very purpose of enlightening people about a basic truth.†† †††

Answer Q5: If the picture is genuine then the Airline is rightfully showing concern as such oversized passengers can affect the comfort level of not just other passengers but also their own comfort during the journey. But not all the people are the same size, so standardizing a policy in this regard might give rise to discrimination or unfair treatment to people who are only slightly obese. Sine people who fall I the extreme obese category are not so by choice and there is not much they can do about their body size, the society should try to accommodate them. They should be treated preferentially as the people in the handicapped category are treated.
