1. Is it right for corporations to use costs-benefits analysis in deciding on
the course of actions that involve life, as in the case of the Ford Pinto
case? Why or why not?
2. Can we put a value on human life? It is often quoted that human life is
priceless. Yet for executive decisions such as cost benefit analysis, we
have to put a value so we can make the appropriate decision.
3. What value would you assign to your own life now as an
undergraduate, and ten years later, when you are an accomplished and
successful person?
