o Friedman presents a two-part clarification of what we may understand as social responsibility. The first part states that the responsibility of business is to its shareholders by using its resources to increase profits. Most stop here and assume that Friedman is advocating an ethics of egoism. But the important second part is that Friedman argues that business must be bound by the law and rules of honesty and decency toward others.

o This report shows that although women have made notable gains in pay, there is a gender gap in pay of around twenty percent. This is due to three factors: (1) most women take part time jobs, (2) a greater percent of women compared to men leave the labor force for child birth, child care, and/or elder parents care, and (3) women prefer certain family friendly industries or jobs that also tend to be lower paying.
