ARE COMPANIES MORE POWERFUL THAN COUNTRIES? HOW THE ROLES OF BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT WILL MERGE IN THE FUTURE
In 2008, after Lehman Brothers fell and the financial crisis and global recession began, the conventional wisdom was that we were entering an era in which government would take back power from business. In fact, just the opposite has happened. Politicians have few solutions to the huge problems of the day — such as labor bifurcation, growth, and competitiveness. Markets want answers, but elected leaders can’t give them — in part because for them, nearly any sort of action poses political risk. This presents a huge opportunity for corporate leaders and organizations that are ready to leverage their balance sheets and talents in areas like education, vocational training, information technology, urban planning, and energy efficiency. In this speech, Foroohar will sketch the ways that the world’s most creative companies are taking on jobs that used to be part of the public sector and the risks and potential rewards that come with it.
