Author William Eggers on Business and Government Teaming Up to Solve Society's ProblemsUnknown - 2014
Technology and new market models are chipping away at the idea that the government is the sole-solution provider to social problems, argues author William Eggers. Whether it's new ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft or established corporations like Coca-Cola funding clean water abroad, "companies are finding that they actually can create a mutual advantage between solving problems and making a profit." In this interview, Eggers discusses the growth of socially conscious businesses, the importance of multi-sector problem solving, and the hurdles some of these new market-oriented solutions are facing.
