Hello Ken, Is there any difference between consumer protection law and sales of good act?
And please share view between consequentialist approach vs relativist approach in ethics.
Please state if any differences.
Thanking you in advance.
Consumer protection is not a law, it is a category of law. The Sale of Goods Act is one of the laws which deals with consumer protection. There are other laws falling this category eg those which deal with giving credit (loans) for purchases or those dealing with the sale of dangerous goods.
Consequentialism judges an action’s morality by looking at its consequences.
Relativism does not offer a way to judge ethics bit it says that there is no single ethical code and that ethics are relative, not absolute. What might be regarded as wrong in some countries or cultures might be regarded as righteous in another.
