  • Be Evil: Does Corporate Responsibility Matter?

    by Siva Vaidhyanathan

    In this age of radical transparency, can corporations that mistreat their users or cause harm in the world get away with it? Does the market discipline companies so that responsibility is now an essential part of doing business? Or is corporate responsibility just a clever trick to gain a slight marketing advantage and defer state regulation? Is the first and only duty of a company to provide value to its shareholders? This debate will consider these issues through the lens of Google, the most significant promoter of a corporate moral ethos. It will consider the ethics of doing business in authoritarian places such as China, pursuing environmentally sustainable infrastructure, and treating labor fairly.

    LEVEL: Beginner

    At 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Monday 14th March

    In Salon D, Hilton Austin Downtown
