This video is an excellent tool to facilitate discussion about business ethics and practices. This video provides multiple stories from different news organizations covering the Toyota recall. Toyota has recalled millions of cars due to faulty gas pedals sticking and causing accidents. Did the recalls happen quickly enough? Are the public and/or news media overreacting?
