Another Sunday hat tip - this time to Vanessa McGowan at Bolton SFC - for recommending this excellent article from the Independent archive of 2009. As Vanessa points out, the title of the article gives a subtle hint as to which side the Independent falls on, but there is some of the other argument in there, including our old friend Milton Friedman. Vanessa used this with her students when the AQA BUSS4 research theme was first announced, and asked them to read it and pull out both sides of the debate, which proved very useful. There are some good facts and figures about the performance and success of businesses who are socially responsible too. A great spot. As always, we welcome suggestions for resources like this which really are appreciated by our readers.
We'll use this Series to curate resources that support teachers and students preparing for the BUSS4 Section A Research Theme on Manufacturing in the UK (June 2015). These resources will complement our popular BUSS4 Section A Toolkit on Manufacturing and the BUSS4 Exam Coaching Workshops which also include sessions on Manufacturing.
Our Year 1 (AS) Course Companion is the designed as a high quality and cost-effective replacement for expensive and overly complicated textbooks. The Course Companion maps precisely against the specification and teaching content for Year 1 (AS) and provides students with comprehensive and concise coverage of what students really need to know and understand.
