    You might want to add Paul Ekins from UCL?

  2. Without wishing to open a can of worms here – surely you can't make mention of Michael Porter in a list like this (even with caveats), without having Jed Emerson in it as well?

  3. Natalia (Responsible Business Forum, Poland)

    What about Joseph L. Badaracco and Joel Bakan?

  4. Anonymous

    What about Jeremy Moon at Nottingham,
    Dexter Dunphy UTS Sydney, Wayne Visser Cambridge, Andrew Crane and Dirk Matten from Toronto, Marc Epstein, Lois Mohr

  5. So these chaps are all in favour of CSR. What about a list of the detractors: Milton Friedman, Aneel Karnani, John Hasnas etc?
