I will pay for the following article Contemporary Capitalism. The work is to be 7 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Corporate social responsibility is a big obligation especially of these conglomerates who profit through societies and people “who through their labor make capital productive” (Korten 30). This means that businesses should look at giving back to society it benefits from. This also means that that “one percent of American society [who] owns nearly 60 percent of corporate equities and nearly 40 percent of the total wealth of this nation” (Hawken 111) should make it a point that the environment for the remaining 99 percent is not disrupted by their businesses. Two articles, one by Paul Hawken entitled “Private Lives and Corporate Rights” and the other by David Korten entitled “A Real-Market Alternative” discuss points that can easily be considered as issues regarding corporate social responsibility due to contemporary capitalism, and how the current economic system continues to fail people and the environment.
