Estoy viendo CNN para enterarme un poco de lo que pasa en el mundo, pues en medio de las actividades diarias, hay días en que no saco 15 minutos de mi tiempo para que me importe lo suficiente el resto de la humanidad y conozca los hechos más importantes del día. Así que me dispongo a quitarme el sentimiento de culpabilidad.
Esta situación puede ser la noticia de cualquier parte del mundo, en este caso es de Sri Lanka. De pronto aparecen imágenes de lo que es, en el mes de abril, el… Continue

It is difficult to be sympathetic to the cries from Wall Street regarding salary caps. What makes me more troubled is that any conversation on the topic appears not only reductivist, but also incomplete. How can a company that lost money pay out a bonus? In the businesses I work, mostly small business, it is the profits that are shared with bonuses. If there are no profits, where are these institutions getting the capital to pay a bonus? And, upon what basis are they making their decisions for… Continue

What happened? Wall Street, in collusion with institutions around the world, have not only lost our wealth and our jobs, they have stolen our trust. Now we are “left to rely increasingly on governments for the creation of our wealth, something that they have always been conspicuously bad at doing.....Trust is fragile. Like a piece of china, once cracked it is never quite the same. And people's trust in business, and those who… Continue

Why can't they make a car that can't crash?
Why do they make products that are dangerous to our health?
Why isn't everything we own environmentally friendly?
These and other questions can all by answered with the following:
Money holds back technology.
I once thought that the capitalist system drove innovation, that money advanced technology, but that was when I was a lot younger. I hadn't yet seen the system from the inside with my own… Continue

Time To Make CSR
The current global financial crisis has impacted Corporate Social Responsibility in India adversely. Business houses, trying to restructure their resources, have run the red line through CSR budgets. CSR managers claim that managements have issued instructions to put on hold all new CSR projects. Budgets for many on going projects have also been curtailed. The global financial crisis has helped strengthened the belief that CSR, for most Indian… Continue

The following is from BusinessWeek online:
Social entrepreneurs—enterprising individuals who apply business practices to solving societal problems such as pollution, poor nutrition, and poverty—are now 30,000 strong and growing, according to B Lab, a nonprofit organization that certifies these purpose-driven companies. Together, they represent some $40 billion in revenue.
Not surprising, then, that they've caught the attention of venture capitalists such as those at Acumen… Continue

Social responsibility is a hot topic these days. But are we serious about it? In popular thinking it vaguely refers to playing nice and supporting worthy causes whenever we can. It’s a justified expense. Business leaders promote social responsibility as having a brand “halo” effect that produces warm and fuzzy feelings about their company. After all, it’s supposed to help corporate reputations or soften up regulators. Social responsibility with a megaphone is called cause marketing. That’s when… Continue

I had a call last night from a person interviewing with a consultant company. I used to work for that company. The company offered a framework for organizations to grow their profitability.
I asked her two questions:
Does the company live by what they teach?
What are the values behind the framework for achieving profits?
My story is that it's always about the behavior of people, not the beliefs they espouse, the conversations they have, or the articles they… Continue

In the last days I started to think on the possible relation of management type of multinational companies and the presence or lack of CSR programs. As a supposition: multinational companies with a Russian or Ukrainian, and other former soviet countries origin are less familiar with the idea of social responsibility, than multinationals from West Europe.
What do you think about this?
I also would like to address a few questions to those who live in a country, where the… Continue
