I think a lot has changed since 2008 when this was presented. I am curious how this presentation would change if delivered in 2013.

Interesting concepts. I located one of the CSR rating sites that Jennifer mentioned and looked up my own company's ratings, www.csrhub.com.

Good delivery and the content is OK, but I do fundamentally disagree with the whole premise of Corporate Social Responsibility. I think Milton Freedman was right - CSR is a nonsense. Corporations can not and do not have social responsibilities, people do! Milton Freedman, a warm and carrying man and a brilliant economist (regardless of the fact whether ones agrees or disagrees with his theories), was often misunderstood and vilified. Anyway, I think most of the examples made in the presentation hold true, but need to be interpreted differently - those corporations pursued their own (shareholder) interests and in the process created unintended (or sometimes intended) positive consequences. Apparently, this is how free and open markets work :)

Good content and a lot of material. Seemed geared more for larger organizations.

I would also like to have a power point presentation for this video. Good Stuff otherwise...

I would like to have the powerpoint presentation to refer to during the video while Jennifer Russell is talking. I will be watching it again.
