    Analysis of Issue
    The desire of corporations to maximize profits creates conflict with
    the general welfare of the nation at large

    Discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the opinion
    stated above. Support your views with reasons and/or examples from your own
    experience, observations or reading.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Corporations in this day and age can be very selfish when it comes to
    money and will not have the nation's benefit at heart.Many multinational
    companies adopt practices that are more harmful to the nation's
    economy and prove to be very profitable for the company owners.

    It happens a lot with the the information technology,consumer
    goods(companies like Walmart and K mart) and pharmaceutical companies .In the
    technology sector ,classic examples would be companies like Oracle and
    Cisco of late .Oracle and Cisco hire consultants from companies in
    countries like India and Phillipines that do their development and quality
    assurance with half the number of people that it would normally take and
    for lower wages.In turn thecompany is shutting down the offices in the
    nation which increases unemployment rates manifold and affects the
    economy at large.

    The pharmaceutical industry is spewing forth a lot of drugs into the
    market that are not well researched and tested by the Food and Drug
    Administration and are being sold as over the counter medication. The recent
    recall of infants cough and cold medicine from comanies like Dimetapp
    and Little Colds attest to this fact. Although these drugs appear to
    treat the ailment at hand they have detrimental side effects and lead to
    more patients in hospitals which drives up the insurance and health
    care costs that hit the economy.

    Who doesn't want money? Everybody does and corporations are no
    different.With the drive to make more money and the intelligence and know-how to achieve it they sadly do not realize that they are doing it at the expense of the nation.
