Williams also says that the possibility of adding the uninsured as new customers of the health care industry will add value to the system and satisfy shareholders. In addition, he talks about why diversity is competitive and good for business. Next week, David Childs of Clifford Chance. If you have a question for David Childs, please email it to the link below.
