Exercise 3 ESSAY
“Maximizing shareholders’ wealth must always be the priority.” Must the other stakeholders’
interest be compromised to achieve this?
Maximizing shareholders’ wealth must always be the priority but that doesn’t necessarily
mean that the other stakeholders’ interest must be compromised in order to achieve it. As we all
know there are different types of stakeholders, these are the customers, investors, employees,
suppliers, communities and the government. These stakeholders have a great contribution on
the success of one’s business or let’s say on the maximization of shareholders’ wealth. The great
contribution of these stakeholders are their actions in which a certain business is so dependent,
that is why a business organization must always align their interest to these stakeholders’ interest
in all its activities. Also, corporate social responsibility must always be in practice because it
benefits us all. To conclude this, a mutually beneficial relationship with all stakeholders will
generate goodwill toward a certain business, which will lead to lasting success.
