Divided We Fall: How Business Can Depolarize the U.S. • Part 3
Organizer: Niskanen Center and Business for America
Business engagement in politics is nothing new, but following the Jan. 6 riot, scrutiny has grown on how corporate political spending may be incentivizing bad behavior among politicians. How can businesses be sure their government affairs and corporate PACs aren't wreaking havoc on our democracy?
In this session, we'll discuss a model for "corporate political responsibility" and why business has "an enlightened self-interest" in supporting political moderation, trans-partisanship, and an actionable "middle way."
This is the third of a four-part webinar series to discuss the root causes of political polarization, its social and economic costs, and what the business community can do to reduce division and have the greatest unifying impact.
