The U.S. elections in 2020 will affect business conditions in many sectors for years to come.
When election results first came in four years ago, it was unclear what policy and regulation would look like in the new Trump administration. Experts ultimately predicted a shift away from the policies and regulations implemented by the Obama administration. Businesses across sectors started to plan how they would adapt to the new policy and regulatory environment under Trump.
Today, the 2020 election comes at what is perhaps an even more uncertain time for business, with the coronavirus pandemic resulting in major revenue and job losses. A full return to normal economic conditions likely remains some ways out, according to experts. The ripple effects reverberate across every market that Industry Dive publications cover.
From the presidential election to congressional races and ballot initiatives, the choices made by voters this fall will impact every business, from healthcare and energy to workplaces and supply chains.
