social compact

1. In the introduction, Lehne suggests that a new “social compact” between business and society/government should be forged. What does he mean by that remark? What was the previous compact and, what changes does Lehne suggest will put the United States in a better position to solve problems? Discuss the social compact for another country. Which would you argue is likely to yield a more favorable outcome, the current US example or, that of the other nation? Discuss what you would regard as an appropriate social compact for the America of the 21st century. On what basis did you devise that construct? Explain, considering what you know about the prevailing social and constitutional landscapes.
