The CSR Reconsidered conference was a success. Human Events covered the conference and wrote about it here. ‘Wolves in CSR Clothing’ is how the Center for Media and Demcoracy’s PR Watch project described the event in their “Spin of the Day” feature.

Speakers at the CSR Reconsidered Conference will address questions such as: Does CSR distract business from business? Is CSR an end-run around democracy for the political Left, which views CSR as a way to have businesses implement its social and political agenda? Will CSR prevent economic and social progress in the developing world by establishing barriers to free enterprise? CSR Reconsidered will give policymakers, business leaders and the media an alternative view of what constitutes CSR, who is supporting it and why.
Last year, CEI published a book by British economist David Henderson related to this topic titled, The Role of Business in the Modern World: Progress, Pressures and Prospects for the Market Economy.
