In fact they are preaching pure and unadulterated socialism. Businessmen who talk this way are unwitting puppets of the intellectual forces that have been undermining the basis of a free society these past decades.
The discussions of the social responsibilities of business are notable for their analytical looseness and lack of rigor.

a one size fits all approach would necessarily benefit the business
community, the environment and wider society.

About three quarters think conflicts over financial reporting are somewhat or even very likely. These calculations cannot be separated from the management context.
