Prepare: In preparing for this discussion, review the Week 1 and Week 2 required resources that focus on globalization, ethics, and moral reasoning. This will help assist you in examining your own development of ethical and moral responsibilities as they relate to your Final Paper and its topic.
Reflect: The change of our world from a local economy to a national economy to a global, international economy means that increasingly diverse populations will have to work together to achieve common goals.

Globalization creates ethical dilemmas for which we will need to find solutions.
