College Faculty Panel on Morality, Psychology and Business
April 23, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
This is the fourth in an annual college-wide discussion of the leading policy issues of our time.
The conventional view of business as being narrowly economic and divorced from morality and psychology is increasingly challenged. Milton Friedman’s famous dictum that the “Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase Its Profits” no longer holds full sway. That morality and psychology play a central role in individual decisions, and are thus of relevance to businesses selling to and employing these individuals, is now being established through systematic research. But how precisely do morality and psychology impinge on individual decisions? What do they mean exactly for business conduct and the pursuit of profit? And what role might public policy play in steering these complex interactions in the direction of the social good? A panel of faculty from across the SC Johnson College of Business will address a range of questions on Morality, Psychology and Business.
