Addressing Social Problems in a Polarized Time: As Government Steps Back, Where Can Business Step in?
America is experiencing a period of political polarization that is both a cause and a consequence of the declining trust in government, especially at the federal level. Divided government is likely to be common for many years to come. How can America adapt to this fact while still addressing the many social problems and forgotten citizens in a rapidly changing, globalizing, and automating economy?
Join a conversation hosted by NYU Stern’s Business and Society Program, where we’ll address these questions. We’ll look specifically at the role businesses can play in addressing environmental threats, economic inequality, and rising polarization and distrust. Light refreshments will be served.
