Small Business And Society


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"The purpose of these hearings is to aid the committee in arriving at a clearly defined philosophy of small business as a phenomenon that is intricately related to the quality of life in the United States. To meet this objective, we need to know why and in what way small business contributes to the ideals of our society. Therefore, we are bringing before the committee thoughtful people from many disciplines who will discuss why and how the institution of small business reflects, reinforces, and responds to the value of the American people. In addition, we shall reevaluate the policy that Congress has created to protect and nurture small business, and to consider such questions as: Is that policy still viable and why? What contribution does small business make to the quality of life in the United States? Is the decline of relative power of small- and medium-size firms indicative of a yet further decline, and, if so, in what way will our communities and our people be affected economically, politically, and socially?"--Page 1.

Business And Society


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In Business and Society, 3/e, authors Thorne, Ferrell, and Ferrell introduce students to corporate responsibility by examining the connection between shareholders and stakeholders. The text's strong pedagogical framework reinforces core concepts and teaches students that social responsibility is not only about philanthropy, but also a strategic focus for fulfilling the economic, political, legal, and ethical responsibilities expected by its stakeholders--and the profitable results expected by shareholders. Through the use of case studies, best and worse practices, and real-life examples, the authors explore how companies fail or succeed according to their ability to adopt strategic social responsibility. The program's streamlined approach provides instructors with the opportunity to include other sources such as readings, cases, and projects. New online resources and a video program provide additional support for both instructors and students.

Small Business And Society Routledge Revivals


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

When this book was first published in 1991, political ideology had thrust small-firm issues to the forefront of attempts to revitalize the British economy. In the Thatcher years the emphasis had been on individual enterprise and initiative with the number of small firms increasing rapidly. This was reflected in the growth in the number of specialist studies analysis small-firm revivalism. Small Business and Society clarifies the issues and debates that surround the small business and its place in society. In particular, the complex nature of its social role is examined: on the one hand, the entrepreneur can be seen as the innovator exploiting free-market capitalism to strengthen the economy; on the other, employment conditions and industrial relations are said to suffer. Moreover, the growing importance of ‘green’ issues now brings into question the extent to which the small firm benefits the environment. This book will be of interest to students of business and sociology.
