Show Summary Details


This chapter uncovers the images and metaphors of the corporate soul with a brief historical overview. An exaggerated form of image creation and management is detailed next: the washing of a corporation's reputation. This discussion is followed by a review of the Nike v. Kasky case, perhaps the most notable example of “greenwashing” in recent years. The chapter concludes with the all-too-familiar problem of verifying the social representations of corporations, for the purposes of socially responsible investing.
