Elgar, Cheltenham (),Price: US$ISBN: X. Enlightened self-interest is a philosophy in ethics which states that persons who act to further the interests of others (or the interests of the group or groups to which they belong), ultimately serve their own self-interest.

It has often been simply expressed by the belief that an individual, group, or even a commercial entity will "do well by doing good". But beyond that, there is no natural (or man-made) law that precludes them from following a deeper purpose.

They can choose to attempt to maximize social welfare under the constraint that profit needs to stay within a certain range, they can put weights on monetary versus non-monetary objectives, or can try to combine the two in a synergistic way.

In “Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business,” Mackey and his co-author, Raj Sisodia, make a case that businesses are at their best when reaching for a higher purpose that ranges far beyond any simplistic notions of the profit motive or self-interest.
