Mr Stutchbury urges Australian business and government to take action to emerge on the other side of the coronavirus outbreak in a stronger position than before.
That will require tax reform, investment to boost productivity, and a reliable energy policy, among other measures, he says.
Mr MacKenzie starts on a more introspective note.
“Traditional principles of capitalism have been rightly challenged,” he says.
“Society’s increased expectations of business has made all of us revisit our purpose and contribution to the world”.
