Lets write some essays ..shall we?

#1: Analysis of Issue
The desire of corporations to maximize profits inherently creates
conflict with the general welfare of the nation at large.

How would you rate the accuracy of the above statement? Support your
position with reasons and examples.

Just rough ideas are enough...I am talking about the first five , ten minutes of the total 30 minutes of the essay.

More to come..

I would provide 3~4 examples of how corporations DO benefit a nation.

Brief outline:

(opening paragraph)
Restate the argument and state my counter position.

(supporting paragraphs 1~2)
1. Corporations that are intent on max profits increase revenue, which in turn increases taxes for the govt., etc..

2. Big businesses foster a more competitive enviornment, whereas the local/domestic consumers would ultimately gain from a better product/service. Give an example ---> GM

(counter-argument paragraph)

4. Briefly illustrate the profit motives would have a negative impact on the general welfare of the nation. Use the same example ---> GM and maybe use industrial pollution.

(clincher conclusion)
5. Analyze the benefits vs. the drawbacks and once again restate my counter position, paraphrasing 1/2 from above for reinforcement.

How about you guys?? How would you outline this Issue??
