Be sure you get a copy of the case study, “Barclays and the Libor Scandal,” as part of your course materials.
Read the case study and answer the following questions:
Who is hurt and who benefits from the manipulation of LIBOR?
Who was most responsible for the manipulation of LIBOR?
As a leader, how should you respond when you know that your competitors are cheating? How should you respond when you think regulators are asking you to cheat?
What is your assessment of the efforts to fix LIBOR? What, if anything, would you do differently?
Compare and contrast the LIBOR scandal and the subprime mortgage meltdown.
You are expected to write primarily in your own voice, using paraphrase, summary, and synthesis techniques when integrating information from class and outside sources. Use an author’s exact words only when the language is especially vivid, unique, or needed for technical accuracy. Failure to do so may result in charges of Academic Dishonesty.
Overusing an author’s exact words, such as including block quotations to meet word counts, may lead your readers to conclude that you lack appropriate comprehension of the subject matter or that you are neither an original thinker nor a skillful writer.
