Do firms, an essential component of the free market, have any social responsibility beyond maximizing profits? Is it enough that they simply do no harm to society? Or do they have a responsibility to do some good? Together with the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and Conscious Capitalism, the Ashland University Political Economy Program will host a panel discussion on corporate Social Responsibility. The panel will consist of Jon L. Pritchett, resident and CEO of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy; Signè Thomas, Project Director for the Stavros Center for the Advancement of Free Enterprise and Economic Education at Florida State University; Josh Harrison, President of Improving - Columbus; and will be moderated by the AU Political Economy Director, Dr. Greg McBrayer.
