"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.

Corporations dominate our societies. They employ us, sell to us and influence how we think and who we vote for, while their economic interests dictate local, national and global agendas. Written in clear and accessible terms, this much-needed textbook provides critical perspectives on all aspects of the relationship between business and society: from an historical analysis of the spread of capitalism as the foundation of the 'corporate' revolution in the late nineteenth century to the regulation, ethics and exclusionary implications of business in contemporary society. Furthermore, it examines how corporate power and capitalism might be resisted, outlining a range of alternatives, from the social economy through to new forms of open access or commons ownership.

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.

Sexty is an indigenous text that provides a broad overview of the Canadian business system, its interrelationships with society and the expectation of ethics in business, and business's adherence to moral standards. Sexty adopts the "business and society" approach to business, in addition to three key words: ethics, responsibilities, and sustainability. The ethics of business refers to the rules, standards, codes, values or principles that provide guidance for morally appropriate behaviour in managerial decision-making that is related to the operations of business and a business's relationship with society. Society accepts business as long as it recognizes the responsibilities in its operations and considers the needs and desires of society. The result businesses have had an increasing obligation to do more. Sustainability represents a management approach that integrates economic, ethical, and environmental responsibilities into all management systems (the triple 'e'). Sexty Fourth Edition enables and encourages critical thinking by introducing new ideas and concepts, by introducing new ideas and concepts, linking ideas to illustrations, addressing issues from different perspectives, and exposing readers to new sources of information. The concepts, theories, and illustrations allow students to use their skills to clarify facts, assess information, formulate and defend their own intellectual positions, and develop appropriate courses of action.

In this concise book, feminist thought is made accessible and relevant to both students and management practitioners. An empowering introduction to an often-overlooked key idea, this book illuminates how feminist thinking can liberate our understanding of work and management. Feminism: A Key Idea for Business and Society boldly challenges assumptions about both feminism and business. It offers a primer on feminism for business and explains feminist interventions including adding women’s voices, pushing for equality, and practicing feminist values to make businesses more successful and more just. It analyzes the obstacles organizations and individuals face in their efforts to address gender inequality, and demonstrates how feminist interventions have changed the terms of business conversations around topics such as defining work, centering the economy around care, how jobs work and wages are gendered, violence in the workplace, horizontal and peer-to-peer organizational structures that don’t depend on dominance, enlightened leadership models, and power. As this book demonstrates, feminism has already had a profound impact on business, with many of its key tenets incorporated into business thinking. As one of the first books to offer feminist insights and critiques of business to the practicing manager, business student, and non-academic, this book offers a fresh, positive vision that is remarkably relevant.
