Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 2 of your Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership: Casting Light or Shadow course text.

This discussion forum focuses on analyzing Case Study 2.1 (The Bad Boy of the Pharmaceutical Industry) from your textbook. In at least one paragraph, supported by evidence from your text and from other research:

  • Describe the shadow casters you see in Martin Shkreli.
  • Explain if rapid success increases the probability that leaders will fall victim to shadow casters.
  • Appraise if Turing Pharmaceutical, as well as other companies that follow the same business model, engaged in price gouging, or are these firms serving the interests of their investors?
  • Describe any learning outcomes you had from this assignment.
