An Honest Look at Capitalism
on May 30, 2008
Perhaps what I liked the most about this book was that it was less focused on the ethical questions, and more focused on what "Market for Virtue" exists in a Capitalistic system. That is, the ethical questions and answers are much more obvious on the subject of corporate social responsibility than the practical questions and answers within the context of Capitalism.
For this reason, I found this book to be one you could take in multiple ways. For example, you can look at it as a critique of how Capitalism can change for the better. You can also look at it as a critique of modern society (which is viewed as merely stating they'd pay a premium for social responsibility, when most individuals don't do so in practice).
While I found this book to go at the issue from a perspective that would be suitable for Sociological discourse, I think it's just as important (if not moreso) for businesspeople to understand the views in this book and to ask themselves some serious questions about what Business SHOULD be.
