Movie theaters, airlines, and many other businesses like to charge customers different prices based on time of the day, age, and purchase dates. Why?

Provide an example of a price discrimination for a good or service that you considered unfair. Do you still believe that the discrimination is unjustifiable?

busn312 Forum Prompt:

This week your studies will take you into the world of facility layouts, line balancing, work flow, work measurement, and sustainability. Your forum discussion this week revolves around the emerging social consciousness that is called “Sustainability.” On page 244, your book describes sustainability in terms of producing goods:

Sustainable Production is the creation of goods and services using processes and systems that are: non-polluting; conserving of energy and natural resources; economically efficient; safe and healthful for workers, communities, and consumers; and socially and creatively rewarding for all working people.” (Stevenson, p.244)

Your task this week is to search the internet for a company that has taken sustainability very seriously. Before posting, look over the postings already in the forum and try to find a company that no one else has already reported on. Once you have found the company you believe is an exemplar of sustainability, address the following:

  1. Describe the company and it’s products
  2. Discuss the efforts this company has taken in these areas of sustainability :
    1. Non- or low-emissions footprint
    2. Conservation of energy and natural resources
    3. Economical efficiency
    4. Healthful for workers, the community, and consumers
    5. Creative rewarding for workers
