What is the Responsibility of Responsible Business to Government?

Deregulation and tax reform—those are the two main issues that business was looking to the Trump administration for new, business-friendly policies. What business was not looking for from the Chief Executive turns out to be more significant: policies on immigration, climate change, transgender rights, and race that have driven CEOs away from the White House. A group of leading top level executives have demonstrated the power of business to speak out and push back against Trumpian positions on issues that affect society by issuing statements on these political issues. “Today, to keep silent is to jeopardize the reputation of the company,” says Nancy Koehn, of Harvard Business School, quoted in the NY Times article,  “The Moral Voice of Corporate America.” Read the insightful details about this sea change in business behavior here.
