Statement Comments
The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed how companies should think about business strategy. Agree “The COVID-19 pandemic may permanently change the relative importance of nonmarket and market strategies. Politicians have at their disposal instruments such as lockdowns and may have become more risk-averse. Companies need to develop capabilities that allow them to anticipate political responses to future disasters and influence these responses such that they become more fine-grained and less harmful to business. ”
