Dustin Johnston Article V. – Friedman, Milton 1. Milton Friedman, one of the most famous and respected economist in recent history writes about how business is not a person. That people have responsibilities, not corporations or businesses in general. That in corporations it’s the executives responsibility to do what the owners, deem correct. Not to be as socially responsible as possible. Friedman finds social responsibility in corporations as tantamount to theft of the owners time, money and resources if this responsibility costs the business. He continues to say that if it is the sole proprietors business which is donating the money to these social causes then it is fine. It is the business owners own money, not someone for whom he is working. Several times in the article Friedman compares being forced to be socially responsible is the beginning of forced socialism. 2. I agree completely, wholly and unconditionally with Friedman in this article. I do not believe I could have ever put on paper my exact thoughts in a more eloquent or as concise a manner.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
