A chapter in Rethinking Economics Starting from the Commons, 2023, pp 91-103 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract This chapter aims at analyzing Edmans’ perspective on the role that public corporations should have in generating value for the society, presented in his book Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit (Edmans, Grow the pie: how great companies deliver both purpose and profit. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2020). After summarizing his view, we provide a critical assessment through the lens of the Catholic Social Thought (CST), and one of its novel applications, i.e., Economy of Francesco (EoF) economic approach, proposing a novel way to reconcile the author’s view with CST’s approach.
