Please write a 500-word response in which you answer the following questions. Your original response is due by midnight this Wednesday and your peer responses are due by midnight next Sunday.
1) What is the point James Traub is making in his essay titled “Our pursuit of happiness is killing the planet.”
2) What do you think the fact that business is the most popular major today says about how American culture has changed over the last few decades?
3) If you accept the claim the the goal of a business is to make money and to train workers to think about theirs and their company’s self-interest, then can you see why–even though we the ‘richest’ country on earth–we continue to waste so much food and resources? Explain.
