Today’s blog is designed to provoke thought on the role of business within society and understand why it has become so important to do different.do better. Readers/viewers should ask the questions:
1. What is corporate social responsibility?
2. Is the economic responsibility of maximizing shareholder value the only responsibility of business?
3. What place is there for law, ethics and philanthropy in the modern-day corporation?
Do you take the view that businesses are not only economic institutions but are social organisations that should have a purpose lying within the communities in which they operate? Or are you of the view that business leaders who were not elected by wider society have no business spending the capital of shareholders on social causes? This documentary explores both perspectives by investigating the opinions of some of the most noteworthy thinkers on these issues, including: Noam Chomsky, Peter Drucker, Milton Friedman, Naomi Klein and Michael Moore as well as numerous captains of industry and social activists.
