2008 economic crisis
The economic crash of 2008 did not derail the idea that business leaders need to think beyond the balance sheet alone. But should this requirement to do something for society be mandated by law?
We can rid ourselves of a Diamond here and a Goodwin there, but the economy itself has to change, not a few rogue fat cats that grab the headlines. Who has the political will to do it though? Which politician can stand up and make the link between city greed, deregulation and an enfeebled economy in Britain. I'm looking at you, Ed.
