: No, the corporate goal is to have a profit.
Unfortunately, too many managers seem to hold the notion that firing workers is a great way to increase profits - indeed, quite a lot of consulting companies will affirm that. But all it does is reduce visible short-term costs, while the long-term damage to the company is hidden, and will be the next batch of executives' problem.
A corporation in itself is not a moral actor, either for good and for evil. It is simply a tool - for the owners it is a tool for increasing their wealth, and for society they are tools for creating needed products, generating taxes, and providing employment. Corporations are not inherently good, but it would also be unfair to say that they are inherently evil.
