In a time when society is changing faster than ever, we need a government that responds to today’s challenges with the speed and competence we’d expect from any major enterprise.  If we want the government to change for the better, we must be willing to help. Business leaders have recently spoken out publicly on issues of racial justice, improved ballot access, and other issues. Polarization, the pandemic, and the economic shutdown increased calls for them to take a greater role in rejuvenating America’s democracy.
