Nigeria’s Oil Exploitation Leaves Delta Poisoned, Poor.

| March 20, 2016

This Week’s reading included a case scenario titled Nigeria’s Oil Exploitation Leaves Delta Poisoned, Poor. It is a case study of opportunism, corporate predation, and a powerless third-world country making a “deal with the devil.”

Focus your discussion on the following:

Where does corporate responsibility for the Earth’s resources—whether they reside in the U.S. or in other countries—begin and end?
If shareholders demand profits, U.S. citizens need jobs, and poor but resource-rich countries need money for basic human survival, is there a reasonable quid pro quo?
Should multinational corporations take more responsibility for environmental integrity when doing business abroad?
