Assessment

The importance of ethical leadership is a subject of interest in current management and leadership research. To some extent this has been driven by what has been seen as an on-going sequence of large, dominant and indeed global organisations behaving badly since around the turn of this century. Many of these organisations were financial institutions involved in quite questionable lending practices that ultimately led to the global financial crisis and in some cases to their own demise. It is contended that if these organisations had had a more ethical culture then the practices by a few senior managers may not have led to either their demise or their significant loss of corporate reputation. With hindsight possibly leaders with high moral values and good ethical leadership could have made a difference to the outcomes suffered by these organisations. Based on the discussion in the lectures on leaders and leadership as well as on corporate social responsibility and business ethics and the discussions that you had in the Week 2 and the Week 4 tutorials you are develop an essay about ethical leadership that addresses the following questions:

a. Do you believe that leaders are hard wired in terms of their ethical values and so do not or cannot change; or are leaders able to be flexible so at times will they display ethical standards and ethical leadership while at others maybe not?
b. Does an ethical leader have to be both a ‘moral person’ as well as a ‘moral manager’?
c. Is it easier to act unethically and express unethical leadership towards followers than it is to act ethically and express ethical leadership? For example, if unethical leadership and the acts related to this leadership rely on not being found out how realistic is this presumption? Is it the case that in the end you are always found out?
d. What role do think Rupert Murdoch played in establishing a culture within News Corporation that ultimately led its employees to engage in the practice of phone hacking? Do you consider Rupert Murdoch to be an unethical leader?
e. When looking at the statements or letters from your ASX-listed corporation’s Chief Executive Officer (or Managing Director) and Chairman, what inferences can you make about whether or not these people demonstrate ethical leadership within their organisation?
Your response MUST include discussion for the following sources, viz.:

Brown, ME & Mitchell, MS 2010, ‘Ethical and Unethical Leadership: Exploring New Avenues for Future Research’, Business Ethics Quarterly, Vol. 20, No. 4, October, pp. 583-616.

Amernic, J & Craig, R 2013, ‘Leadership Discourse, Culture, and Corporate Ethics: CEO-speak at News Corporation’, Journal of Business Ethics, Vol. 118, No. 2, pp. 379–394.

In addition to the required sources shown above, you should use AT LEAST TWO other references that you have found. A superior answer will also include some real world examples as part of the evidence that supports your claims and arguments. The format of this assessment item should follow a discussion essay format with a brief introduction, a body and a brief conclusion. For further help on how to write an essay, see the ‘College of Business Essay/Report Writing Guide’ which is available in the ‘Assessments’ folder on the Management Dynamics vUWS site.

You also need to support any claims that you make by using relevant research literature, concentrating on peer-reviewed or scholarly sources. Note that newspaper articles and Wikipedia are not considered scholarly sources due to issues about peer review of the material presented. However, you can use newspaper articles and Wikipedia to obtain a general understanding on a topic that you are researching. Where scholarly sources are used then appropriate citing and referencing of these sources should be completed as part of your submission.

comparative advantage

comparative advantage

Patrick J. Buchanan, a former presidential candidate argued in his book on the global economy that there is a flaw in David Ricardo’s theory of comparative advantage.

“Classical free trade theory fails the test of common sense. According to Ricardo’s law of comparative advantage if America makes better computers and textiles than China does, but our advantage in computers is greater than our advantage in textiles, we should (1) focus on computers, (2) let China make textiles, and (3) trade computers for Chinese textiles.

The doctrine begs a question. If Americans are more efficient than Chinese in making clothes, why surrender the more efficient American industry? Why switch to a reliance on a Chinese textile industry that will take years to catch up to where American factories are today? “
Please read the above statement and write a paper of two typed pages in response to the statement. In your paper, you should explain what forces drive international trade. Be careful to explain who gains and who loses in the exporting and importing countries as a result of trade. You should also take a position and say whether you agree or disagree with Patrick Buchanan and defend your position.

The best way to go about doing this assignment is to first refer to chapter 9. You should also consult at least three professional journals and other sources. (No blogs or wikepedia). If you do not know how to access professional journals, please call the library and ask the reference librarian.

The impact of sleep duration on sleepiness, mood and cognition

The impact of sleep duration on sleepiness, mood and cognition

Paper instructions:
Investigation of the impact of sleep duration on sleepiness, mood, and cognition.
Brief Introduction:
Sleep deprivation can lead to profound deficits in cognitive performance – after 17 hours of being awake performance is reported to decrease to a level equivalent to that observed at a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05%. Sleep deprivation is being recognised as a significant public health and safety problem, with almost 20% of all serious car crash injuries linked to driver sleepiness.
Despite the extensive body of evidence concerning the performance decrements associated with sleep loss, comparatively less is known about the specific nature of these deficits and whether these deficits are observed in people with short sleep duration in the general population.
The aim of this practical exercise is to investigate the impact of sleep duration on sleepiness, mood, and cognition. Data from all students enrolled in PSY2031 will be compiled. Data from students categorised as either „short sleepers? or „long sleepers? will be selected for analysis. The findings of the study have implications for our own lives, such as when we decide whether or not to deprive ourselves of sleep, for example, before exams.
In this study, you will be both a participant and a researcher. To examine the impact of sleep duration on sleepiness, mood, and cognition, we will be using the psychological tests listed below.
The Measures:
Sleepiness:
1) The Karolinska Sleepiness Scale (KSS) (Arkerstedt & Gillberg 1989). This is a self-report measure of fatigue. KSS is a nine-point scale, with semantic anchors (1 =`extremely alert’, 5 =’neither alert nor sleepy’, 9=’extremely sleepy – fighting sleep’).
Mood:
2) Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) (10 mins) (Watson et al., 1988). The PANAS consists of 10 positive affects (interested, excited, strong, enthusiastic, proud, alert, inspired, determined, attentive, and active) and 10 negative affects (distressed, upset, guilty, scared, hostile, irritable, ashamed, nervous, jittery, and afraid). Participants are asked to rate each item on a scale from 1 to 5, based on the strength of emotion where 1 = “very slightly or not at all,” and 5 = “extremely”.
Cognition (Sustained Attention):
3) Trail Making task (TMT) (5 mins): (Franzen et al., 1996). The test consists of encircled numbers and letters randomly spread across a sheet of paper. The object of the test is for the participant to connect the numbers and letters in order, in an alternating pattern (1-A-2-B-3-C, etc.) in as little time as possible. (You will have to time yourself with a stop watch or similar)
