Description: Even before the April 20 explosion on its rig off the Louisiana coast, BP spent millions of dollars lobbying Washington’s power players. BP will now tap that power and influence as it tries to repair its image.
Questions for discussion:
- Do you believe BP has behaved ethically?
- Do you believe that the public reaction toward BP is fair?
- Do you believe the government and regulatory agencies have treated BP fairly?
- What do you think the long-term impact will be on BP as a brand and as a viable energy company in the US?
