Is corporate responsibility responsible? Reich vs. Vogel

Here’s a 2008 YouTube video of a debate between Robert Reich and David Vogel on corporate responsibility.

Both of them have written recent interesting books on CR and the business case, and the issues around that.

David Vogel’s book, some years old now but worth a read, is called: The market for virtue: the potential and limits of corporate social responsibility

Robert Reich’s is called Supercapitalism

Both are articulate and intelligence takes on corporate responsibility.

I disagree with both of them in many ways.

But their thinking, and more like it, is what we need to encourage better debate on the complexities of responsible business.
