CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business through the three P’s: profit, planet, and people.

Still this hasn’t helped their profitability because over the past 4 years, their CSR policies have not really changed, while their profits have. In 2008 Starbuck’s shares declined nearly 50%, due to overexpansion, and consumer unwillingness to pay so much for coffee, not CSR. However, recently the company has seen a complete turn around and an increase in stock price by almost 500% since 2008. Its CSR policies are still similar to that of 2008, which means the its CSR has not really effected the profitability of the company. Instead it came down to consumer demand, and the slowing down of company expansion.
Overall corporate social responsibility is viewed with great skepticism. Some see it is absolutely necessary, while others see it as a waste of time and money. Still, when it comes down to it CSR is necessary because it helps to put a company at a competitive advantage against other companies, it provides positive PR, and helps to market/sell a company’s products.

    Free Will and Determinism- is it an Illusion? Determinism, libertarianism and compatibilism are three significantly different views on where unaccountability might stop and where free will and moral responsibility begin. Determinism is the strict opinion that every action and decision is the cause of an event, genetics or the environment prior to that action. Quite the opposite is libertarianism, which happens to be the genuine belief in free will as well as the denial of universal causation. Finally, deep self-compatibilism meshes both of these stand points together and introduces the i
