I decided to focus on one of our oldest “disagreements” by creating a Twitter conversation between Ed and Milton. For some reason, pictures wouldn’t work, so sorry about the blandness.
@ShareholderMilton contrary to what @EddieFree says, businesses only have one true social responsibility #increaseprofits
@EddieFree @ShareholderMilton why even try to label businesses and the men who run them? they’re driven by way more than just profits #principleofcomplexity
@ShareholderMilton @EddieFree honestly, how can either of us say that the world of business as a whole even has responsibilities? #itsnotaperson
@EddieFree @ShareholderMilton easily b/c business affects a lot of people. they’re all stakeholders who matter. just ask @TDonaldson. #normativetheory
@ShareholderMilton @EddieFree who owns the company? shareholders. so who should the company keep in mind when making decisions? shareholders. #fiduciaryduty
