A Nation Turns Its Lonely Eyes to You
March 18, 2020
An open letter to American CEOs: As Americans look to you for reassurance and guidance, will you accept the responsibility?
Dear American CEO,
“I feel like I have been hit on the head with a cow,” a Joseph Mitchell character once said (after he’d had a cow dropped on his head).
The coronavirus crisis is profoundly disorienting for every American—but none of us more than the top executives of large companies and other prominent organizations.
As our nation faces one of the greatest challenges in its history, people are increasingly looking for reassurance, guidance and solutions to you.
The question is, will you accept the responsibility, or will you not?
