Homer-Dixon believes his approach
to what is social responsibility in business.
He illustrates that lots of organizations be unsuccessful
due to the fact that they manipulated resources. He tells a story as evidence
that small events in the world can have a profound impact on the entire
environment and society. Homer-Dixson suggests that society needs to prepare
for the impact which these events could bring. He also mentions that the
organizations should be prepared for overall changes. Especially,
Homer-Dixson stresses that the organizations have to be ready to adapt to the
structural stress that will occur. He also presents that this structural stress
can have a significant impact on the organizations and that top management has
a responsibility to handle it. Regarding profit maximization, Homer-Dixon agrees
with Friedman, and he says that “his approach is not suitable for private companies
that seek profit alone”. He concludes that the organizations as a society will
change and adapt for the benefit of the environment and society.
