Fifty-one of the world’s top 100 economies are now corporations. When it comes to solving the world’s problems (both local and global), writes environmental consultant Piasecki, businesses are more powerful than government. This is World Inc., and its heroes are what he calls “social response capitalists.” With case studies on companies like Toyota, Hewlett-Packard, and Starbucks, Piasecki chronicles how innovative leaders are creating both profits and social change.
