Topic: Do Corporations Have A Social Responsibility?
The economist Milton Friedman famously argued that the only responsibility of corporations was to increase their profits for their shareholders (though shareholders, as human beings, might have various social responsibilities to spend their money in various ways). An alternative view is that corporations have social responsibilities that go well beyond that (to the environment, to workers, to communities, etc.). Consider Amazon, Coca Cola, the NFL and big banks: do corporations have social responsibilities — and if so, what are they?
