What is wrong with earning a profit?


There is nothing wrong with earning a profit and taking dividends from a company’s earnings. It is very important driving force of the economy. Growth of the economy is linked with profit – making. By introducing the concept of social business we are not condemning PMBs, or arguing for elimination of it. We are only arguing for the introduction of a new business in the market place. Even social businesses will be making profits, but the profit will stay in the company. It will not be distributed to the owners because they do not wish to take it beyond recouping the investment. In PMBs taking profit is the objective of the business.
