I believe you explained the relationship between business and peace perfectly. To add, I believe businesses today work to find a balance between profit and ethical behavior. My generation is much more concerned with the processes and motivation behind the profit than just the profit itself. Therefore, the decisions made my todays businesses must take this closely tied relationship into account.

I don't necessarily believe that businesses contribute to peace because they feel it's the morally right choice. I think decisions in business come from a desire to increase profits and build relationships with customers. When businesses make decisions to better the world by contributing to peace, they are also creating a positive reputation for themselves to appear socially responsible and invite a larger pool of investors. As the business world evolves, customers are expecting more from business owners and through social media they are always aware of the state of the business. Now more than ever it's necessary for business owners to consider how each decision they make to increase profits will be perceived in the media by the public. Regardless of motivation, I think the important thing to consider is if each particular business is contributing or detracting from peace.
