BERNARD MADOFF CASE STUDY What are the ethical issues involved in the Madoff case? The Bernard Madoff case is fraught with numerous ethical issues. This case has been classified as the largest swindle in our nation’s history. Madoff is a typical example of someone who had a lack of respect for his profession as well as a lack and pure disregard for the personal relationships that he built over the years. These same individuals trusted and respected Bernard Madoff and yet he showed less than the mutual respect a professional investor should show toward his clients.
He has no moral qualms about his own extramarital affairs, but when faced with his wife’s infidelity, he assumes the position of outraged victim. The importance of time and the past manifests itself in the confrontation between Gatsby and Tom. Gatsby’s obsession with recovering a blissful past compels him to order Daisy to tell Tom that she has never loved him. Gatsby needs to know that she has always loved him, that she has always been emotionally loyal to him. Similarly, pleading with Daisy, Tom invokes their intimate personal history to remind her that she has had feelings for him; by controlling the past, Tom eradicates Gatsby’s vision of the future.
Instead of having an open dialog with his wife he choose to have an inner monolog with himself. He seems like a man with a lack of confidence and therefore he avoids conflicts. He never asks himself if he could be a part of the problem too. These thinks about the protagonist is really obvious for the reader to see, so I guess the same thing is for his wife. He is easily manipulated and it is his own fault that he feels like a doormat, because he never showed his wife, where his boundary was.
He got a baby daughter out of it. His daughter was a clean slate and didn’t know any of the father’s pitfalls at that point in time. It gave Troy somebody to talk to in his final days which for a man with so many opinions, it is the greatest closure they can have. These are the positive things that I saw from Troy; however, there are many more things that he destroyed because of his stubbornness. Troy destroys relationships over and over again throughout the play.
His simultaneous affairs patently didn’t pose a very strong relationship with his wife, Daisy. “That’s what I get for marrying a brute of a man, a great, big hulking.” (Fitzgerald chapter 1) A conversation between Tom and Daisy displays the tension in their relationship, and quite evidently suggests the fact that their relationship is based on a quite fragile and feeble surface. “I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful, little fool.” (Fitzgerald chapter 1) Referring to the social standards of a woman in the 1920’s, Daisy expresses her despondency to Nick inferring to the reason of being married
His previous wife’s actions leave him no choice but to kill her. But as he is telling the agent about his wife’s death he appears nervous and tense. The use of caesura suggests that he is unsure of what to say next. He could not understand of his wife’s love for natural, simple things and her kindness she displays towards others he treated it with disdain. He could not gain command over his wife’s appreciation towards others that he thought it
Dahl represents Mary the protagonist as being the innocent in the story through the maltreatment that is shown by Patrick towards her. Patrick is very dismissive towards his wife. Mary “waited on him for an answer, a smile, a little nod, but he made no sign” which shows that he treats her with minimal respect. While Mary is utterly devoted to Patrick, he clearly lacks affection, which is conveyed, through his abrupt replies. Therefore, Mary is an innocent sufferer as she endures her husband’s mistreatment.
That the wife has suffered her husband’s tyranny, indifference, and infidelity for a long time gradually changes her into an unhappy, frigid and even hard-hearted wife. After marriage, due to the fact that the wife has no major decisions under the strict protection and rules of her husband, her effervescent personality turns droopy. First of all, she must have abandoned all personal ambitions in order to benefit her husband only. For instance, she must have yielded to her husband’s pressure to live in a small, noisy flat in the center of the city instead of the house with a garden in a peaceful community that she used to dream about before marriage because it was convenient for her husband to go to work (1133). Moreover, not only is her sexual aspiration unfulfilled, but such righteous need also used to be rudely criticized by the husband.
