AbstractPhillip Morris is in the process of developing a microelectronic cigarette holder that eliminates almost all secondhand smoke, only delivering smoke to the smoker. While some hail the product is being very good for smokers concerned about exposing others to their second hand smoke, others are worried that this product will simply reinforce addictions to cigarettes and promote smoking among children. You are offered a job in the research division of Phillip Morris working on the development of this project. Would you accept?
