Whether businesses should have social duties, besides legal ones,
has been debated for a long time. Capitalist markets are populated by firms
that strive to optimize profits within the limits of the law. So why, and when,
have we started to think that corporations' legal responsibility was not enough
and that and additional social responsibility was required? Of course, the idea
of social responsibility is linked to business ethics, and scholars have addressed
this issue. Zamagni not only reviews the state of the art, but also looks ahead
and attempts to envisage the future of corporate social responsibility. The
author's thesis is very clear: even corporate social responsibility is no longer
enough. If we want to stimulate a declining economy we need to aim for corporate
civil responsibility in the specific form of corporate global citizenship.
Stefano Zamagni teaches Political Economy at the University of Bologna and is Adjunct Professor of International Political Economy at the Johns Hopkins University Bologna Center.
