Episode 101 – Is the American Corporation Doomed?

Welcome to Business and Society with Michigan Ross. In this podcast, professors from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan share their insights about the ways that the business world interacts with our broader society. Each episode features a small panel discussion addressing a current issue or problem facing our world, followed by a one-on-one interview with another professor about some of their vital research.

For our very first episode, our panel tackles the question “Is the American corporation doomed?” They discuss the decline in the number of U.S. public corporations, the effects of this shift, and how corporations need to evolve to remain relevant.

At the end of the episode is a bonus research interview with Sarah Miller, associate professor of business economics and public policy, who discusses her research into the financial impacts on women who have been denied an abortion.
