I have a class about ethics in the professions and I need an Issue essay of about 4 pages long and the due date is 04-24. Down is the essay requirement and details.The Issue essay question:
If you do this as an Issue Essay, tackle an issue directly and you can still refer to cases in passing.Is investment just another form of gambling, and if so does that make it morally unjustified? Handle a case of investment whose moral legitimacy might be questioned, and apply the case study format to it to seek a solution. It may be a case of insider trading, day trading, selling short, investment in futures, mechanized trading,etc. How can it be argued that any of this is productive? Or, in the case of insider trading, how can it be argued that it is wrong? How can we expect anyone to follow a law against insider trading when they have the information anyway, owing to their position in the organization.Another controversial case is the teaming up of investment minds with political insiders. Is this not another kind of de factoinsider trading? What if the sources of knowledge are through informal friendships?Below is a Skelly-analysis of investment according to purpose, with related questions.As categorized by intention, there are three different types of investment. They can overlap one another in the same actions.1. Private Investment – a party's lending resources to or buying ownership in enterprises for the sake of that party's own enrichment.2. Entrepreneurial Investment – A party's lending or giving resources to enterprises for the sake of the success of that enterprise.3. Social Investment – A party's lending or giving resources to, or buying ownership in, enterprises for the sake of the improvement
of society.Sample argument:1. A prosperous society depends on the goals of Investment of types 2 and 3 being met.2. The strategy of pursuing Private investment alone is bound to fail to meet the purposes of social and entrepreneurial investment.3. Any investment strategy that fails to meet the purposes required for a society to be prosperous is wrong.C. The investment strategy of pursuing private investment alone is wrong.

The case study format:1. Brief opening paragraph in which you state that you will be examining a particular case (mention it) or comparing several cases (mention them) for the sake of getting a better understanding of a certain issue (mention it).2. Introduce the issue of controversy. Try to present it in the manner which best frames the controversy so both or all sides can be adequately be appreciated.3. Bring an author or two into the discussion of the issue. Briefly discuss the major views.(You can also do this at a later time in the case study, as seems most fitting).4. Introduce case or cases in all details relevant to the direction of your inquiry (know your direction before writing). Make sure to reference your factual sources. If they come from personal experience or personal interviews, document that.5. Discuss briefly the other issues -if any – present in this case/these compared cases than the one you're focusing on.6. Re-frame the issue in the context of this case or these compared cases to best highlight the moral dilemma involved.7. Background: any details of the outside world that impact on the case(s), historically, locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally; including law, custom, or accident.8. Identify alternative solutions for the dilemma – 2 or 3 – and briefly discuss.9. Deliberate over alternatives and make a reasoned choice.9a. If the case is from the past, briefly compare your solution to the one actually chosen.10. Assess what the general lesson is, especially in terms of how this problem can be avoided in the future.The largest sections of a case study should be 8 and 9.
In the attachment you'll find the Issue essay format, and some papers about ethics in the investment.
