Religious Perspectives on Business Ethics

What social responsibilities do corporations have? Is it true, as Milton Friedman argues, that the only responsibility of a corporation is to make a profit for its shareholders? If so, how does the corporation fit into the larger moral structure of society? If it is false, how does a corporation exercise its social responsibilities while still fulfilling its obligations to its shareholders? In particular, consider how these questions of social responsibility shed light on the actions of the executives at Enron.
