Hello class! This week, we were tasked with finding a source discussing the role of businesses in lobbying, politics, political processes, or campaign financing. We found this topic very exciting, as it relates to each and every one of us, regardless of if we regularly engage in politics, or not. We look forward to hearing your responses!
In the ever-changing economics of our nation, we find a new trend on the horizon. Companies are beginning to take a stance on the political stage. Fueled by the potential billions in the social media markets, companies are using this avenue to capitalize through the reach that social media. The political decisions of these companies can also equate to lost revenue should the climate of the social atmosphere turn against their favor. In our article, you will find examples of multiple major companies, such as Apple, who are spending their money to be on their preceptive correct side of various political stances. This has made some companies continue to be prosperous and driven others into bankruptcy. Please take a chance to read this article and view it from an apolitical lens. A lot can be learned from the opinion of the masses. We hope you enjoy the article we have curated for this assignment.
This article understandably claims that progressive culture has won the “culture war.” Do you agree with this statement. Why or why not?
Many political standpoints are controversial, for example, Chic-Fil-A’s viewpoint of opposing gay marriage. At what point does a viewpoint become discrimination and where should businesses draw the line of taking a risk of ruining their reputation and sales?
Would you / to what extent would you continue to support a business that acted in opposition to your and/or public opinions? If you are able to, provide an example of a time that you personally acted in favor of or against a business due to their beliefs and/or actions.
