Palmer, Eric (2007). "Corporate Responsibility and the Capability Approach to Development" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.
This presentation engages the capability approach to human development with libertarian philosophical foundations of business ethics as introduced by the Chicago School of economic theory. It particularly applies thinking from Amartya Sen’s Development as Freedom to discussions of freedom articulated in the writing of Milton Friedman, and characterization of the good for society authored by Michael Jensen.
