There are those who suggest anyone who has worked for a corporate entity should not be in the Biden administration. That kind of thinking is insanity.
Having experience and contacts in both government and the private sector can be a plus as long as the right ethics controls are in place.
We must not assume anyone having worked in the private sector has no ethics. Those who believe in some kind of purity test have focused on Anthony Blinken, Biden’s choice to be Secretary of State, who founded a consulting firm, WestExec Advisors, during the Trump presidency, and Neera Tanden, Biden’s choice to lead OMB, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress.
