The topic will be "What are the Ethics of Sales?" There are a number of issues related to this topic.

One aspect of the topic is the role of ethical advertising. How do we draw the line between persuasive advertising and misleading, or deceptive advertising?

Are there certain products where there should be limits on advertising, such as alcohol or tobacco? What are the ethical considerations involved in selling or promoting potentially harmful products?

Should the salesperson always seek to maximize their sales? Or should the salesperson only sell what a customer needs? What is the seller's obligation to the buyer?
