2020 Business Roundtable:
Who Does Our Economy Serve?
Capitalism is not as efficient as it once was: growth is stagnant while inequality continues to increase, and the environment is deteriorating on behalf of large corporate businesses. Here at the business roundtable, we will work to underscore our purpose as corporations to accommodate a broader array of assets beyond just shareholders, as well as the sustainability of businesses through Environmental, Social, and Governance factors (ESG). Efforts made in this sphere have helped transform the way we approach business, though many refuse to oblige to these standards without CEO compensations that reward them for their transition. Liability has also come into question, as some companies may be to blame for socioeconomic turmoil and environmental destruction over those that abide to ESG principles. Thus, it is the business roundtable's job to evaluate the circumstances and define a mission statement that will dictate the guidelines of business, and society, for years to come.
