Harvard Business School and Shibusawa Eiichi Memorial Foundation Hold "Stakeholder Capitalism in Turbulent Times" Symposium


On March 27th, the Harvard Business School and the Shibusawa Eiichi Memorial Foundation, under the auspices of Consulate General of Japan in Boston, the Fish Family Foundation, and the Japan Society of Boston, held a symposium on "Stakeholder Capitalism in Turbulent Times.” Consul General Rokuichiro Michii gave a speech during the event, where speakers discussed the views of Shibusawa Eiichi, a major business leader and serial entrepreneur of the 19th century. The discussion sought to understand the Asian and Western origins of stakeholder capitalism and map the evolving arguments about the responsibilities of business and the changing practices of firms while debating the relations between morality and economy for globalized economies and societies in the perspective of sustainable growth.
