American Businesses Face Ethical Dilemma When Doing Business With China
Should American businesses be obligated to uphold American values?
The recent wave of criticism directed at the N.B.A. after the league failed to stand up for Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey for tweeting support of Hong Kong protesters has shed new light on the relationship between American businesses and the communist Chinese government. While China does all that it can to monitor and police speech within its own borders, some are now saying that American companies can do more to uphold the American value known as free speech.
Companies like Disney and American Airlines have both faced criticism for toeing the Beijing party line, even when operating outside of China. This includes erasing mentions of Tibet from company collateral and using the Chinese preferred “nine dash” map that some say violates the sovereignty of China’s neighbors. Do you think that private American businesses should be obligated to uphold American values like the freedom of speech, even if it means losing access to the Chinese market?
