This ethnocentric view often leads to a loss of life or other disaster for Odysseus and his men. Even though Xenia is important for making good relationships with foreigners, ethnocentricity and the expectation of xenia lead to disaster and loss of life in The Odyssey. Xenia is important for making friends with foreigners, and using xenia not only helps you win favors from the gods, but also paves the way for easier travel during a time where there were no hotels or restaurants and when travel took much longer. In The Odyssey, we see an example of how xenia was useful for making friends and making travel easier when Telemachus and Pisistratus
A stakeholder is a person or groups that affects, or are affected by, an organization’s decisions, policies, and operations (Lawrence and Weber 2011). Stakeholders are defined as market and nonmarket stakeholders. Market stakeholders in the dispute between Disneyland and SunCal are employees of Disneyland, stakeholders that have invested in Disneyland and the stakeholders who have invested their money for the condominiums that are proposed to be built in the resort district. Creditors and suppliers for both sides have an interest in the decisions in which they will be affected. Some of the suppliers supply food and items that are bought on Disneyland’s property.
Ethical Issues in Business - Objective 310.2.1-05 Evaluation It is clear that Company Q has protected its shareholders investments as well as the company’s profits by closing failing stores in high-crime areas which were consistently losing money. However, there are many areas in which Company Q has not lived up to their ethical duty to be social responsible, by failing to have a positive effect and not making attempts to decrease their negative effect on society. The lack of response to consistent customer requests for more healthconscience and organic products demonstrated a complete disinterest in their community’s health, customer satisfaction, and consequently return business. Lack of return business creates revenue loss, and affects both the business and the shareholders. When the requested products were finally available in the stores, the prices of the products were very high and the product variety was extremely limited.
Company Q in the scenario provided has a very poor attitude towards social responsibility because though they provide some basic aspects like Economic and Legal they fall short in Ethical and Philanthropic aspects. We will examine ways that Company Q can improve those lacking aspects. The first potential improvement is in the store closing situation of the scenario where Company Q closed two stores in high crime rate areas. Company Q has the right to be profitable and if they report that these stores are losing money then they have every right to close those stores but they made no efforts in the Philanthropic aspect of social responsibility. Company Q could have made investments in the local community that would have potentially improved the community thus decreasing the crime rate.

Metro PCS’ poor brand identification is largely due to their marketing focus on a very narrow demographic. In 2012, Metro PCS released plans to broaden their marketing focus outside of their norm of young urbanites to families, expanding their family plans, which is a good start to gain more brand identification. However, their ads have been touted as “ethnic stereotypes…that perpetuate negative images of any community of people” (adage.com). Although the additional marketing has perhaps turned a few new heads in their direction, but the classless marketing style has just perpetuated their most profound dilemma: brand image.
