The act of corporations, especially powerful corporations, speaking out against human rights violations may appeal to the victims and seem to be beneficial as these corporations can set “the standard for the way of life and the mode of living of our citizens; which leads, molds and directs; which determines our perspective on our own society” (Wettstein quoting Drucker, 47). If all the negotiations regarding workers’ rights between corporations and governments happen behind the scenes, then public debate and outward opinions of the victims and the citizens would cease to retain any influence as public discussions would be further limited and suppressed, opposite of what Wettstein is trying to argue for. This would be due to two different reasons: as it is the country would be benefitting from the success of these corporations, the actions of a corporation would trump the opinions of the citizens any day, and as corporations may use their influence for good and to speak out against certain human rights violations as Wettstein discusses, they may also use their

One such person is Elon Musk, the mind behind Tesla and SpaceX. Like Moyers and Campbell have mentioned, heroes like Musk must go beyond normal achievements. He has certainly done so in numerous fields of study. Additionally, Elons’s moral objective of helping both the environment, and the people who live in it, is admirable. Campbell would agree that a hero like Musk has certainly inspired others to become more environmentally conscious and has taken steps to ensure a brighter future for all. He has made all of his work accessible to the public so that they too can envision a better future.

No longer satisfied to depend on limited perceptions of aid, or to view businesses as their adversaries, nonprofits have finally discovered methods to work within the economy and support companies to do good deeds as they prosper. Until recently, nonprofits had been paradoxically viewed within our economic sectors of society. Traditionally, these organizations are expected to make an extraordinary impact on their social purpose yet, they are frowned upon when they choose to amplify their shoestring budget to fulfill this charge. It is a “double bottom line,” this requirement for nonprofits to balance between monetary return and social impact (Worth, 2013, p.7). Nonprofits can effectively utilize the strategies discussed by “Making Markets Work” to bring awareness and financial stability to its social purpose.

In the process of maximizing profits, irrefutable damage has been inflicted to the environment and also to human capital.
