Global Business Perspectives
Discuss and debate the role of global businesses in your home and foreign countries. Is the sole purpose of a business to provide a return for their stockholders (“the business of business is business”) or do businesses have a broader social, environmental, and financial purpose (“doing well by doing good”)?

Emerging Diseases in Your Community
This week, we will look into our own communities and discuss emerging diseases.
Look into health data for your community (Baltimore, Maryland). You can look at statistics from your local health department or websites such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Find a disease that is emerging in your community and discuss. Please make sure it is different than your research paper disease. Give the rates and the duration of the increase of this disease. What population does this disease affect most? Discuss what you think can be done to prevent further increase in this disease.
Initial responses should be no less than 200 words in length not including your reference(s) and supported by at least two references (aside from the textbook)
