Social Justice and the Firm
Responses From Latin America

Inequity in the distribution of income has long been a serious problem in Latin America. This paper examines the responses of four Latin American firms to the issue of social justice. It concludes by arguing that to the extent that Latin American firms find ways to gain benefits from social action, it is more likely that they will participate in social justice programs.
