Thebusiness decision that Lauren Smith made was ethical because it wassolely based on economic significance rather than her relations withthe uncle. This is because the decision was informed by an exhaustiveresearch, which reflects adherence to organizational code of ethics.She delivered what the management of Sports Central requested her todo and recommended the best a site for the new store. Moreover fromall the several shopping plazas and malls, the most economical choicewas that shopping mall owned by her uncle. Therefore Lauren Smith didnot make the decision of choosing her uncle’s shopping mall fromthe fact that they were related. Lauren clearly uses ethics to guideher decision in the hope of meeting the business organization’sgoals. Her decision to withdraw her relations with her uncle to themanagement is therefore neither here nor there and hence not anethical concern.
