DATE: 10/07/2011

Discussion Questions

1. Should laws be passed to stop discrimination? Why or why not?

2. What might happen if business owners were permitted to run their company however they choose, without government regulation? Are there other factors and incentives, besides government regulation, that "regulate" business behavior?

3. Are certain kinds of discrimination worse than others (for example, race discrimination vs. discriminating against the umemployed)?
