Description: What might constitute social responsibility in a market setting? If social responsibility connotes a connection between a person and a social problem say between you and a poor person in Bangladesh or Houston how might it be exercised in a market transaction of buying or selling? Is there a role of private enterprise or of private consumption for alleviating some of the social problems (e.g., health, education, pollution, poverty, etc.) that we observe and experience in communities across the world? Social Enterprise explores these and related questions in the context of business.
