The September 11, 2001 attacks in USA were followed by measures that herald major changes in the global business environment and an end to neo-liberal fundamentalism. The State, civil society and business were revealed as interactive and interdependent components of the social system which is strongly influenced by the values of its members. A large majority supports fairness in preference to neo-liberal economic objectives. Accordingly, corporate citizenship can expect to be under stronger pressure from domestic governments and the world community to support democratic practices, ecologically sustainable development, upgraded public health and education programs and effective attacks on corruption.
