I Am Looking For Informatino On John D Roosevelt And The Standard Oil Trust This
I am looking for informatino on John D. Roosevelt and the Standard Oil Trust. This is for an upper level General Business class. Specific questions I need to address in the paper are:1) how did the power of Standard Oil change society? Was this power exercised in keeping with the social contract of Rockefeller’s era? 2) How does the story of Standard Oil illustrate the limits of business power? Does it better illustrate the dominance theory or the pluralist theory?3) Did Rockefeller himself ever act unethically? By the standards of his day? By those of today? How could he simultaneously be a devout Christian and a ruthless monopolist?4) In the utilitarian sense of accomplishing the greatest good for the greatest number in society, was the Standard Oil Company a net plus or a minus? On balance, did the company meet its responsibilities to society?5) Did strategies of Standard Oil encourage unethical behavior? Could Rockefeller’s vision have fulfilled using “nicer” tactics?Thanks for any information.
