Summary

This chapter investigates the triangular relationship between public goods, varieties of capitalism (VoC) and corporate social responsibility (CSR). It brings two strands of discourse together which usually do not interact and certainly not in relation to their economic implications. Varieties of capitalism do not seem to say much about public goods, at least not in terms of economics. In a legal perspective though the VoC discourse focuses on the institutional and organizational conditions of market economies, which determine who is in charge of public goods, the companies, the state or both.
