What Small Businesses Know About Corporate Responsibility

“CSR can be a risky undertaking. Approach the wrong cause, and you risk alienating customers and even employees. Devote too many of your resources, and you risk missing your financial goals. So how are small businesses so successfully navigating these waters? Below are my top three takeaways from my time spent with small business owners through the International Franchise Association.”

The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity

Far from representing rationality and logic, capitalism is modernity’s most beguiling and dangerous form of enchantment, argues Eugene McCarraher, associate professor of humanities and history at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. He recently published The Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity (Harvard University Press, 2019).

Is Goodstart Just the Beginning?

“When Michael Traill, investment banker turned social entrepreneur, went touting for funds to make a bid for the collapsed childcare group ABC Learning ten years ago, more than one person told him it was a flight of fancy. […] Can a successful social investment model be used in aged care and elsewhere?”

Arrogance Destroyed the World Trade Organisation. What Replaces It Will Be Even Worse

“Its establishment coincided with the peak of market liberal triumphalism […] Unsurprisingly, it became a symbol of the way democratic governments were becoming powerless to resist the forces of the global economy […] The rules will revert to those of the earlier General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, which give large countries like the US much more scope to do what they want.”

Goodbye to All That: The End of Neoliberalism?

“What, precisely, do we mean when we discuss neoliberalism? Are we simply using a polite euphemism for ‘capitalism’ or do we refer to a distinctive social order altogether? Is neoliberalism an idea or a politics or a cultural phenomenon or some combination of all of these? Denniss [in his new book Dead Right: How Neoliberalism Ate Itself and What Comes Next] suggests ‘neoliberalism’ can be used, fairly straightforwardly, as ‘a catch-all term for all things small government’ and for a ‘blind faith in market forces’.”

Corporate Action on Climate Change Has to Include Lobbying

“Many in business will rebel against this idea, but we are long past the point where free markets alone could solve the challenge in time (if such a possibility ever even existed). Business needs to, in the words of Environmental Defense Fund president Fred Krupp, ‘unleash the most powerful tool they have to fight climate change: their political influence’.”
