The Great Recession and its aftermath have left the world in turmoil and facing uncertain prospects with uneven and slow growth. The events leading up to the recession have also generated greater scrutiny of business. What was corporate America’s role in creating the Great Recession?

The momentous changes of the last five years have resulted in a clamor for business to rethink its role and responsibilities toward society. Better governance and responsible leadership are being demanded by stakeholders and shareholders alike.
