    Ethically and morally responsible or touchy feely garbage?

    Why separate a corporation from, say, a sole proprietorship when it comes to social responsibility?

    While I like the idea that a business might maintain a social responsibility, why should they HAVE to?

    It's tough to find the balance between profiting and pleasing society. The business only survives if it makes money, and that's ultimately where it will default to.

    I can see no reason.

    I guess they don't. But it might've been a good idea for BP.

    Yes, but I'm pretty sure stakeholder theory doesn't suggest that businesses not make money.
