In this unrehearsed program, Dean John Elliott, and Professors Lilach Nachum, and Michael Stauffer constituted the board of directors of a company doing significant business outside the US. Ronald Goldstock, Independent Private Sector Inspector General, posited a situation based on an actual situation at Chiquita Banana Company that received considerable press attention subsequently. The board’s discussions illustrated the difficulties of avoiding ethical and legal pitfalls.
