On our blog site EIU editor Zoe Tabary interviews Jonathan Sand, chairman of global brand consultancy Elmwood, on the importance of corporate reputation. And Parag Khanna, senior fellow at the New America Foundation and Singapore Institute of International Affairs, examines whether corporations could replace national governments.
