Dear AIB members, I have completed a new international business simulation, "Weighing the Ethics of Outsourcing," for culturescrossing.com. The simulation concerns a mid-sized U.S. company considering outsourcing its manufacturing to either Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, or Guangdong Province, China.
While students will read about the real pluses of both locations, they will also study the cons of the destinations. The controversial issues involve corruption, environmental degradation, and crime and femicide in Mexico.
In China, the issues comprise widespread surveillance and facial recognition technology, demographic challenges, and human rights abuses in China (the repression of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.)
Our updated website now allows a buyer to immediately download their product.
If you would like further information, feel free to contact me.
