Read the Foxconn in the textbook. In a well-written paper, respond to the following questions:
1 Explain why you do or do not think a firm is responsible for its supply chain. If your answer is that a firm is not responsible, discuss an organization that exemplifies this. If your answer is that a firm is responsible, how far down the supply chain does this extend—to immediate suppliers, the suppliers’ suppliers, or beyond? Support your opinions with scholarly research.
2 Determine why Apple continues to source its production from overseas firms such as Foxconn? In your answer, consider what advantages and/or disadvantages this generates for the firm. Evaluate and assess what Apple could have done to avoid the threats you named. Overall, explain how or whether the benefits of Apple’s decision outweigh the costs. Support your opinions with scholarly research.
