In this symposium, we bring together diverse perspectives regarding governance of business and social implications for inequality and growth and wealth of nations. The panelists include management scholars and business leaders who vary in their points of view regarding (a) the extent to which a tradeoff between inequality and growth and wealth of nations exists (b) the institutional and organizational factors that contribute to inequality and growth/wealth of nations, and (c) the proposed solutions to potential tradeoffs. By engaging these thought leaders in dialogue and discussion, we believe the symposium will add value by enhancing the discourse within management scholars on fundamental premises regarding the role of business in society, and the broader implications for individual and social welfare, prosperity and growth.
