First, dumping clearly seems to be in the best INTEREST of the shareholders, etc. You could address issues of the fiduciary obligations of management here, if you choose.
Second, you note that those who purchase the product are not in a position to really provide INFORMED CONSENT. This would also be a good place to discuss a business’s responsibilities concerning PRODUCT LIABILITY.

What you will want to do is explore the different standards for product liability, defend the claim that one of them applies here, and then explain why that does or does not make it the responsibility of business to stop exporting. You also suggest that it might be the responsibility of government. Why would it be their responsibility rather than the business or the consumer?
