Discussion on: "Don't be evil" is not good enough

If you look at the book "Doughnut Economics" by Kate Raworth, she describes several "levels" of social responsibility a business can have

The levels are

  • Do nothing
  • Do what pays
  • Do your fair share
  • Do no harm
  • Be generous

So, "do no evil" is somewhere above "fair share" but below "do no harm"

Businesses should cut the crap where we have to wait for the billionaire founder to retire before he really starts giving it all away to make a legacy

If you are a growth hacking startup type you should read Raworth, for example
