亚当斯密的经济伦理思想对我国企业社会责任建设的借鉴意义

摘要:亚当•斯密是经济学的主要创立者。世人尊称其为“现代经济学之父”和“自由企业的守护神”。斯密也是西方最早对经济活动与道德伦理的内在关联作过深入思考的思想家,他所著的《道德情操论》获得学术界极高评价。他从伦理学意义上肯定人的自利心的正当性,同时又认为必须从道德上法律上加以约束,通过“看不见的手”的调节,从而可以实现利己与利他、富国与富民相统一的经济伦理思想,具有深邃的理论内涵与应用价值,对于推动与我国市场经济相适应的企业社会责任建设也是一种很好的借鉴与启迪。

Significance of Adam Smith's Economic Ethical Thought in the Fulfillment of Social Responsibility

Abstract: As the main founder of economics, Adam Smith is regarded as “Father of Modern Economics” and “Guardian of Free Enterprises.” He was also the first western thinker who made a profound reflection on the relationship between economic activities and moral ethics. “The Theory of Moral Sentiments”, one of his works, was greatly acknowledged in the academic circle. According to Adam Smith, it is a rightful behavior to concern for one’s own interests. But such concern must be restricted by morality and laws. Through the regulation of “invisible hands”, the interests of everyone, individual and national wealth can be coordinated. Therefore, with profound implication and practicability, the thoughts of Adam Smith can play an important role in motivating enterprises to perform social responsibility against the background of market economy.
