In recent years, increasing numbers of articles and studies have emerged across the disciplines of economics, accounting, finance and management to examine the importance of considering both the private and social economic benefits of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). As stakeholders and their concerns have multiplied, and empirical evidence has accumulated, CSR has become a critical area of interest.

This authoritative collection examines the five related and most significant elements of this subject - theoretical perspectives, firm financial performance, socially responsible investing, environmental performance and strategic CSR - to provide a comprehensive exploration of the literature on Corporate Social Responsibility and its economic consequences.
‘The academic debate over CSR and its implications to the economy and society has been vast over the past decades. The current collection composes an innovative, thorough and holistic review of the literature regarding the economics of CSR. The contributions are categorized under the prism of their subject rather than their discipline. Therefore, the reader is being offered a unique, outstanding guidance throughout this imperative branch of the economics literature.’
