I was surprised to see four emerging markets (India, Indonesia, Mexico and Poland) and two recently emerged markets (Singapore and South Korea) among the top ten countries that support Friedman’s views. These are the countries that could benefit most from such activities. But then I thought, maybe many businesses in developing countries are still in the initial growth phase and thus do not feel that they have the means to be worrying about social issues just yet. Meanwhile, perhaps some countries such as the UAE, have governments who take care of social issues so that corporations do not have to. Or simply, maybe some countries define “social responsibility” differently than others, and thus the results are not completely accurate.
