Keeping in mind what you have learned in this module, answer and discuss the following questions:
- Define corporate social responsibility.
- What arguments in favor of CSR seem most important to you?
- According to the readings and articles reviewed so far, would you say that Ethics and CSR can create long-term competitive advantages for a firm? Develop your argument with actual current organizational examples using 2 organizations you feel reflect this long-term competitive advantage.
- Ten years from now, do you think affluence, ethics, or corporate brands and image will still be driving ever-greater CSR? Do you see any other emerging forces (e.g., religion, big data) that might reshape CSR in the future?
