"If you ask me how business can address these challenges to pursue better resilience and long-term success, I do believe that the German system of a stakeholder rather than a shareholder economy offers a pretty good answer. As we're looking at balancing the interests of different stakeholders, we avoid optimisation of one shareholder group versus the others. And I strongly believe that if you leave people behind, you will lead and create uncertainty and unrest."
