Does the market discipline companies so that responsibility is now an essential part of doing business? Or is corporate responsibility just a clever trick to gain a slight marketing advantage and defer state regulation? Siva Vaidhyanathan, a cultural historian, media scholar, and professor of Media Studies and Law at the University of Virginia, will consider these issues through the lens of Google, the most significant promoter of a corporate moral ethos.
