A critique of Milton Friedman's essay 'the social responsibility of business is to increase its profits'

Journal of Business Ethics 5 (4):265 - 269 (1986)
Abstract
The main arguments of Milton Friedman's famous and influential essay are unsuccessful: He fails to prove that the exercise of social responsibility in business is by nature an unfair and socialist practice.Much of Friedman's case is based on a questionable paradigm; a key premise is false; and logical cogency is sometimes missing.
