The 2015 Forum featured a panel discussion led by Joseph L. Bower, Donald K. David Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. The discussion was based on extensive global research described in the book that Professor Bower and two of his Harvard Business School colleagues published in 2011 entitled Capitalism at Risk: Rethinking the Role of Business. The conversation focused on the threats to market capitalism and the need for business to step up to meet these threats and save the capitalist engine of prosperity for future generations. The panelists shared examples of how their companies are tackling these issues.
