Mark is the top guy on the board of directors of a company that has stock holders. Bill is his business partner and friend.
Bill’s teen child goes missing. Mark uses his authority as the head of the board to close the company for a few days so the employees can look for the kid.
Would you think that Mark used the company resources to take care of a personal problem? Knowing that this action could impact company profits and therefore the dividends the stockholders get paid, what do you think about Mark’s decision? Would you vote him into a political office that could have an impact on your life?
