I have provided the supporting reading to answer the questions. The answers must be well thought out and encompass ethical arguments or be ethically based. If it requires an example you must provide a basis for your example. If it has a why or why not in the questions you must have two sides of the ethical answer.
1. Why do you buy the products that you buy? Does the desire to satisfy basic necessary needs such as shelter, hunger, and thirst account for the majority of the products that you purchase?
