Documentary – Inside Job


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 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? The Inside Job is about the late-2000s financial crisis directed by Charles H. Ferguson. The film is described by Ferguson as being about “the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption.” In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis.
