Abstract

Occupy movements highlighting economic inequality have quickly spread around the world. But they have also excluded several countries. One interesting example of the latter is India. How have businesses in India coped with the dual pressures of enhancing shareholder wealth leading to economic growth and operating in a society with a high level of inequality? Can businesses in the developed world learn from Indian enterprises that have attempted to balance their respective corporate good with the social good? Readers will find some stellar examples in this article.
