Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

The demise of communism has left the market economy victorious upon the world stage. This triumph has, however, prompted a searching examination of capitalism’s limits and failings. High-profile corporate scandals and the growth in anti-capitalist activism have thrown corporations into the spotlight and left them seeming more unpopular than ever before. Many are asking if business has a responsibility to society and, if so, how far its duties should extend.

Should companies be cheerleaders for capitalism or is the growth of corporate and social responsibility evidence of a new way of doing business and doing it better? Is it time for policymakers and business leaders to be more aggressive with business failure? Yet a backlash is emerging too among those who think companies are becoming overly timid and apologetic.

Too much of this risk aversion could be damaging not just to profits but to faith in capitalism itself. With books critical of global corporations topping best-seller lists across the world, how can corporations answer their critics – and should they even try? This book assembles leading thinkers to debate the limits of corporate and social responsibility. It questions whether corporations deserve the flak and asks if it is now time for them to embrace the business of saying sorry.
