Details

In the last few years, thousands of companies or their CEOs have taken a public stand on political issues such as immigration, same-sex marriage, or gun control, even where it was unrelated to their core business. Such stands offer possible risks and rewards for companies, depending on how their stakeholders respond. They also raise new questions about the nature of democracy and the political role of companies and their executives. Should companies come out publicly on one side of a political issue, and if so, what should guide their behavior?
