The Social Responsibility of Business is Here to Stay

One reason why business is taking on more social responsibility is that large institutions are failing us. Political strife and overwhelming debt crises are crippling governments around the world and, in turn, are infuriating their already jaded citizens. In many countries, the church has faded from a strong role in many citizens’ everyday life, even here in the U.S., which arguably is the most spiritual and religious nation in the industrialized world. And despite the U.S. foray into two wars abroad, the fact is that our military does not have the huge impact on daily life the way it did even a generation ago when U.S. bases were ubiquitous at home and abroad. A smaller, leaner and technologically advanced military in part means that for many Americans, the only military they know about is through the updates they receive on cable news.
