DATA POINT
“High touch” falters in a high risk world
The coronavirus is reshaping workplaces worldwide, and none more so than in close contact service industries.

BREAKINGVIEWS
Review: Serial director’s manual skims the surface
LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - Dambisa Moyo has spent a decade in the boardroom of some of the world’s largest companies. She was a director of Barclays when Bob Diamond resigned over a Libor-rigging scandal in 2012, and when his successor Antony Jenkins was pushed out in 2015. The same year she had a ringside seat when SABMiller was taken over by Anheuser-Busch InBev in a $100 billion deal that created the world’s biggest beer maker.

Yet the sector’s investment plans remain stubbornly short of what’s needed to decarbonise the global economy.
