Answer all three sections, and all questions within each section. Please include examples / references to

readings from class, notes from slide presentations, or videos that we have seen or referenced. Use short

essay answers (or as long as you need). One sentence answers do not qualify as sufficient.

Section I.

(10 points)

We spent a great deal of time this semester in varying debates. Please think through the following issue

and answer the questions. There are several articles and videos from the semester that you should use as

reference, including, but not limited to the Kasser et al and De Angelis articles as well as the Story of

Stuff Video.

The materialistic / consumerism lifestyle is leading to increased unhappiness.

1. Please supply a short essay response in agreement with this statement.

2. Please supply a short essay response against this statement.

3. Discuss how the course materials attempt to explain our “unhappiness”.

4. Do you think that as more corporations turn to social responsibility and corporate cultures shift, it

will impact our materialism, or is it up to us to change ourselves?

Section II.

(10 points)

Consider the following scenario, and answer and discuss the potential impact via the questions below.

Scenario: Temple University announces its intention to close the Center City Campus.

1. List at least five different stakeholder groups and explain the most likely opinion of that group

regarding the decision.

2. Discuss the attributes of each group.

3. Discuss Temple’s responsibilities to each group and how Temple should approach managing its

relationship with each group as it pertains to this decision.

4. Imagine yourself in one of the groups of stakeholders, identify that group, and discuss your feelings

and ideas as a member of that group on the proposed decision. Do you think your opinion matches the

majority?

Section III.

(10 points)

This section involves both a video about Judy Wicks and two articles from class. Watch the video and

read (re-read) the articles and answer the following questions in short essay form. You can also

incorporate information from our last class regarding Local Business Networks, CSO’s, Philadelphia

SBN and BALLE.

Judy Wicks Speech

The Sustainable Business Network Serves the Community Through Social and Environmental

Advocacy -

https://philadelphianeighborhoods.com/2016/06/23/center-city-west-the-sustainable-

business-network-serves-the-community-through-social-and-environmental-advocacy/

1. Judy Wicks chose to operate a socially responsible business instead of growing and expanding her

business to other cities. Discuss some of the characteristics of Local Living Economies and what affect

they have on both the businesses and the community.

2. In the video, she mentions working with many different suppliers. Explain some of those

relationships and why she chose them instead of national distributors. What benefit did she believe

existed? Do you agree with her assessment about these benefits?

3. How do some of these independent agencies and non-profits help promote community business ideals

(Local Business Networks, CSO’s, Philadelphia SBN and BALLE)?

4. How do you feel the Triple Bottom Line approach measures up against Profit Maximization theory?

Evaluation

Grading Rubric: The maximum score for your Final is 30 points. It will be evaluated on the three

questions, with 10 points available for each. There is no page requirement for this exam, but you must

answer each section and question within. I think it will probably take a few pages for each section (I-

III). You can submit when you are complete through Canvas – any time before May 6th at 8:00pm.

A) I will be looking for you to use course reference material when applicable.

B) You should use short essay style answers, not simply one sentence answers.

C) Well thought out and organized answers will score better than scattered and less coherent ones
