Dr Kannan Vishwanatth noted that "Fifty years ago, Milton Friedman affirmed that the social accountability of business was only to increase its profits, within the law. This mantra, with its focus on the short term, gained a stronghold on much of business practice and continues to guide leadership decision-making in response to COVID-19."
He also highlighted that the coronavirus catastrophe and its economic effects coincide with the 50th anniversary of Milton Friedman’s apparent assertion that the social responsibility of business was only to increase its profits within the law. This mantra has gained a stronghold on much of business practice, focusing on the short term. It is in this context that business leaders will be acknowledging the effects of the coronavirus crisis.
