“Business must have a wider focus than simply maximising shareholder value. It plays an integrating role, around which a network of close relationships is woven. It can also have a significant political impact. In a complex, unstable world with fluid borders, the common good can no longer be solely the responsibility of the State. It also lies in the hands of its citizens, who we wish to educate.”
