In the case study that follows you will be asked to apply what you have learned in this Guided Inquiry to a real-world example. The case study detailed in this Guided Inquiry raises questions about the ethics of the building of a salt factory by Mitsubishi International Corporation in cooperation with the Mexican government at Laguna San Ignacio in the Baja California.
We will begin with an introduction and an investigation of the factual background for this case. Then, the opposing views of environmentalists and Mitsubishi are presented along with some press accounts of the issues. At the end of the case, you will be asked to form your own judgment about whether the salt factory should be built and to justify it ethically.
