Resumen

 181
El enfoque del bien común plantea que el trabajo colaborativo en las empresas permite el desarrollo de conocimiento, habilidades, virtudes y significado, además de la producción de bienes y servicios para satisfacer las necesidades y deseos de la sociedad. Por su parte, las benefit corporations se caracterizan por la combinación de objetivos económicos y sociales. Este artículo, a partir de un análisis teórico comparativo de carácter inductivo, contrasta las características de las benefit corporations (en el marco del derecho societario en los estados Unidos) con los planteamientos del enfoque del bien común. Se concluye que existe una buena fundamentación teórica para este subtipo societario en el enfoque del bien común.
