Why Social Responsibility Is Profitable?

Many people believe that marketers have a certain social responsibility, however, there are two main opposing views. One camp believes that marketers have no social responsibility. That the consumers themselves are responsible for making informed decisions about what they need, want, and are able to buy with their hard earned money. The other camp says that way of thinking is antique. The consumer of today is in a market that is so much more complicated and difficult to discern. Therefore they believe that the marketers themselves have the sole responsibility to society to keep them informed about the market changes, different product types and so forth.
