Dogma of Profit Maximization

Dogma of Profit Maximization

Abstract

This essay is a philosophical enquiry into the dogma of profit maximization as one of t he dogma premises of capitalism. Being attracted by the cyclical nature of financial crises as an existential challenge the case is argued to be biased and undemocratic in presence of profit maximization as a guiding principle. Philosophy as un - dogmatic procedure seems suitably sustained to keep the notion of maximization alive and leaves ground to draw valid arguments considering theory of greater good and justice. The epistemological approach to understand the efficiency argument as defended seems vagu e to establish justice, stability and economic democracies. Bottom up approach may resolve the issue using evident and biased ruling of interest tax deductibility under maximization approach and gain greater good and justice at all levels. According to reasonable judgment of consequences “equitable and sustainable wealth creation” tends to be more valid corporate guiding principle negating “maximization of profit” .

Abstract

The notion of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seems appealing amidst unprecedented corporate affluence and power vis - a - vis abject socio - economic and deteriorating environmental conditions. An increasing number of corporations have started exploiting social responsibility as insurance strategy against government intervention, media reporting and consumer reaction to irresponsible corporate behavior . Analyzing retrospectively, current Social Responsibility Practices are far away from letter and spirit. This article aims to present critique of concept and practice of CSR. This phenomenological study, analyzing corporate practices, explores the ulterior motives precipitating corporations espouse CSR and finds that Social Responsibility is not social, it is economic phenomenon. The proposed model of CSR can make it social, sustainable and provide much - needed impetus to practice.
