Katie makes a strong point in that while a business' first responsibility is to its shareholders, companies with strong production and distribution networks have the ability to use their resources for the common good. While the primary goal of investors is to get a return on the investment they make in a company, many also want to see a strong sense of corporate social responsibility. Acts of good will, such as what Anheuser Busch did during the Flint water crisis, effectively help countries in need, while simultaneously bridging peaceful, yet powerful relationships which may in turn benefit the company financially in the long run.
I agree with a lot of people, when I say that business definitely has a role in peace. I think that what Anheuser Busch did during Flint water crisis is a great example. For one week, they took their production and canned clean drinking water instead of beer. This was something they were completely capable of doing, both production wise, and financially wise. There are so many other companies that are doing so well, and it would really put no financial strain on them to do something like what Anheuser Busch did, just to help someone. If more companies worked like this, there would be a lot more peace.
