Debate Project. Two groups of four students each will debate the ethics of doing business in countries with totalitarian governments. After the first student from each side has spoken, the second student will question the opposing side’s arguments, looking for holes and inconsistencies. The third student will attempt to answer these arguments. A fourth student will present a summary of each side’s arguments. Finally, the class will vote to determine which team has offered the more compelling argument.

Students arguing in favor of entering countries with totalitarian governments should consider the perspective of companies based in like countries, not just democratic ones. Many students will overlook the fact that many companies based in totalitarian countries do business in other like countries. Trying to view business from this perspective might challenge students not coming from such a country. For this reason, it can be interesting for international students in the class to be divided into different groups so that each group has a variety of opinions and perspectives.
Likewise, students arguing against entering totalitarian countries must grapple with whether their not investing will create political change—it oftentimes does not. These students will also need to accept the fact that not investing might actually mean a lower standard of living for people in the totalitarian country and perhaps less work at home for the multinational that would undertake the investment.
