I personally do believe that Corporations have Social Responsibilities because, when we look at the grand scheme of things, these MNC's are what keeps the world economy going.
International Law, Tariffs and Free Trade are examples of how the government, the WTO and other organizations have sought to maintain some level of governance.
look up community reinvestment act
The corporation's responsibitily is to it's shareholders. Therefore, it shares the social responsibility of the shareholders, and therefore the executives are bound to the shareholder's social responsibilities.
Example. Walmart's success is an example social responsiblity. They have increased the standard of living in the US significantly, and in so, increased their profit.
If you go to the websites of Wal-Mart, The Home Depot, or especially Coca-Cola they can give you some awesome points and counter points to help you out.
" The discussions of the "social responsibilities of business" are notable for their analytical looseness and lack of rigor. What does it mean to say that "business" has responsibilities? Only people can have responsibilities. A corporation is an artificial person and in this sense may have artificial responsibilities, but "business" as a whole cannot be said to have responsibilities, even in this vague sense. The first step toward clarity in examining the doctrine of the social responsibility of business is to ask precisely what it implies for whom. "
