Summary
"When 51 nations gathered in 1945 to witness the birth of the United Nations, international business groups urged governments to ratify the UN Charter without delay. During the following 55 years, UN and business leaders dismissed each other, when they did not engage in a war of words. Why the global order of the 21st century demands a new partnership between the UN and business is what this book is about. If it fails to engage the business community, the UN is likely to become irrelevant. If they refuse to support the UN, global corporations will face a closing world with disastrous consequences for the prosperity of all. The UN and business are bound to work together, and indeed they have already begun to do so."--Jacket
