Corporate responsiblility can be legislated

Written by Paul and Anne Ehrlich

Corporations can't really have ethics, no matter how many codes they write; they have no theory of mind and no possibility of being empathic.  Their primary goal (and responsibility, executives assert) is to make profits,  Corporations can, however, have social responsibilities, not just to stockholders but also to their national and international employees and the communities and environments they affect. Charging corporations with responsibilities and developing ways to enforce their compliance can be legislated.
