This week Evan Davis and his guests talk about risk management and corporate headquarters
The modern world is fraught with risk, and business is no exception. Security alerts and floods have the potential to create massive disruption and huge losses, and they’re just two topical issues of the dozens that businesses have to worry about. This week on the programme we talk about how to avoid risk and how to insure against the times when things inevitably go wrong.
We’re also talking about corporate headquarters. One study found that large public companies that put their names on skyscrapers tend to underperform the stock market after their buildings are finished. One notable example is Sears Tower in Chicago, the tallest building in the United States. It was completed in 1974, inaugurating a few terrible years for the retailer. So is there virtue in keeping things modest? Tune in and find out.
