title page and reference page. You may not exceed six (6) pages so it is important to write clearly and concisely. Create a title page with title, your name, the

course, the instructor’s name and date

main topics covered in the paper. The introduction comes at the beginning of the paper and tells a reader the main topics covered in the paper. View this website to

Step 5: Learning How to Write a Persuasive Essay
Task 1: Read: Tips on Writing a Persuasive Essay and Writing the Persuasive Essay
Task 2: Read the following tips for writing a persuasive essay:
· Use a pleasant and reasonable tone in your essay. Sarcasm and name-calling weaken an argument. Logic and fairness will help to keep it strong. · Make

your best argument your last argument. · Select your words carefully, have them evoke an image. Persuasion is about appealing to all the emotions of the reader.

The use of adjectives and logic will convey a vivid picture and will make the reader believe you and that you write as an authority on the subject. · No personal

pronouns and no I think, I feel, I believe as these phrases all weaken your perspective because the reader is less likely to think you are writing from fact than

fiction. · No personal experiences unless they are generic meaning everyone has them and can relate to them and they convey a vivid and immediate image.
Step 6: The Persuasive Essay
Task 1: Decide to either support or deny the veracity of the theme statement
Task 2: The argument will include a discussion on a position of either for or against corporate social responsibility
Task 3: Include a discussion about the idea of distributive justice and the current distribution of wealth. Step 7: Write the summary paragraph Write the summary

paragraph. A summary paragraph restates the main topics of the paper. Make sure to leave a reader with a sense that the paper is complete. The summary paragraph is

the last paragraph of a paper and does not need a heading.
 Role of government in Regulating Business Ethics  Compliance and Regulation: Johnson & Johnson  Business Ethics: The Law of Rules
 Distributive Justice  Ethical Relativism  Ethical Relativism and Business  Theory of Ethical Relativism (Criticism of the theory of ethical relativism)  It’s A

“0.6%” World: Who Owns What Of The $223 Trillion In Global Wealth  Wealth, Income, and Power  The 147 Companies That Control Everything  Put Your Ethics To A Global
