AIER Bastiat Society: “Stakeholder Theory and ESG: Why Should I Care?” with Ramon P. DeGennaro, Ph.D.
AIER’s Bastiat Society program in Nashville hosted an in-person event on Feb. 28 with Ramon DeGennaro, Haslam College of Business Professor in Banking and Finance (emeritus) at the University of Tennessee.
About the Event: Some people want to use business and investing for social change. Is that possible? If so, then what’s the best way to do that? Let’s look at the theory and existing research to see what options are available, then consider the costs and benefits of each. What are the potential implications for the longstanding notion of shareholder primacy, economic growth, and prosperity?
