Phoniness, Business and Questionable Rights (Homework Assignment)

In this week's Maclean's (September 1, 2008), read the opinion article on p. 13 (The West, Mad at China for Being Fake: That's Rich) and read the articles in the Business Section, p. 33-34 (Looking for help in all the wrong places / Groceries go under the shrink ray / Mining firm gets a lesson in queuing / Evian for kids: it's all about image) and the short article on p. 29 (What's a Mouseketeer with no gun?) . Be prepared to discuss the articles in your discussion groups.
Students who have not turned in one of the assignments should write a short synthesis (100-150 words) and analysis (100-150 words) for one of the articles. If you are up to date, you do not have a written assignment this week, but be sure to read the assigned articles (and any others that interest you).
