Back in 2010, the city of Washington D.C. put a five cent tax on disposal bags in the city. The sale of these bags dropped substantially as the study showed that people didn't want to spend the extra money on the disposal bags.

Chapter 3:
With an increase in foreign interest in attending American colleges, a number of universities such as Northwestern, Ohio St, and Virginia Tech have gone over seas and built campuses to build a greater enrollment. I find this to be unethical for the United States because we no longer have the best and brightest students in the world.

That is why I think it is unethical.
