This chapter pulls back to the societal level, asking what sorts of transformations in stakeholder regimes are needed to make possible the transition to knowledge production. It first makes the case that robust systems of stakeholder involvement are necessary for business success as well as for social justice. It then reviews the barriers to creating a stakeholder regime that will encompass the new actors and forces: on the one hand, the conservatism of existing stakeholders (including unions); on the other, the immaturity and fragmentation of emerging new stakeholder groups such as those focused on the environment or on ethnic inclusion.

Keywords:   stakeholders, unions, social justice
