In our capitalist society yes

"It is in the USA. Europe/UK's slightly different still."

Haha. You do realize that the same corporations that operate in the U.S. are the ones that operate in Europe, right? Get off the high horse, mi amigo.

Isn't an oxymoron supposed to be made up of only 2 words?

The US isn't socialist enough. This is where the laissez-faire garbage comes from.

The corporate world is raping the entire planet in the name of profit, and since resouces are limited the world will soon be bankrupt. Mother natur will then rid herself of the vermin that caused all of the trouble and continue on without us.

In England CEOs make 14 times the average employer at the same time... in the US it's 531 times. So I got it from Bushgame but even if those aren't the totally correct numbers, I wouldn't be surprised if that's not far off.

of course. social responsibility does not equal best possible bottom line
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 9/18/04 - 8:09:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope

Everybody working for the man place their left hand on the mission statement and raise your right hand in the air and repeat after me:

I am of, for, and belong to a corporation formed and pertaining to assume itself a united group, as of persons combined to a political system under which the principal economic functions, as banking, industry, or labor, are organized as corporate unities. Devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship or relations with others or in a community as a body divided into classes according to social rank. That I as an employee, assume a NO particular burden of obligation or responsibility on behalf of any authority of said corporation because the responsibility for this mess is yours!

sure sounds like it
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 9/22/04 - 12:41:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
It shouldn't be, but it is.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 9/22/04 - 1:14:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Technically, no its not an oxymoron. Or at least it shouldnt be. Taken into context however, it can be very ironic and perhaps an oxymoron.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 9/23/04 - 1:37:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
It shouldn't be, but in the States, it sure seems to be that way.

There are a few good ones out there...Newman's Own, Working Assets, probably a few more.

By and large, however, corporate social responsibility does seem to be an oxymoron.
