Global Business in the Age of Destruction and Distraction     Mahesh Joshi, J.R. Klein, Gaurav Rastogi

When a crisis like a pandemic sweeps through societies, it upends critical structures in health, economics, socioeconomics, institutional cultures, communities, and everyday life. This book examines how a world already stressed by rampant change reacts to a global crisis. It draws on experts that foresee a growing economic inequality as the tech-savvy pull further ahead of those with less access to digital tools, training, or aptitude. Some anticipate big technology firms that will exploit their market advantages and weaponize tools that erode the privacy and autonomy of their users.
