In this Introduction to the Special Topic Forum on Management Theory and Social Welfare, we first provide an overview of the motivation behind the special issue. We then highlight the contributions of the six articles that make up this forum and identify some common themes. We also suggest some reasons why social welfare issues are so difficult to addressin the context of management theory. In addition, we evaluate means of assessing social welfare and urge scholars not to make (or imply) unwarranted "wealth creation" claims.
