American business life is going to look significantly different after the coronavirus pandemic has ended, billionaire Mark Cuban said in a Monday interview on the War Room podcast hosted by Steve BannonRaheem Kassam and Jason Miller.

“I think America 1.0 is gone. We’re going through a reset as we speak, and we’re getting ready for America 2.0. And that’s where the entrepreneurial spirit really needs to pump in,” the Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner said. “Big companies aren’t going to hire the same way, they’re not going to retain employees the same way. Small companies are going to have to adjust considerably. There’s going to be a lot more buying done online … we have to recognize America 2.0 is going to look vastly different than America 1.0.”


Bannon, a former White House adviser to President Donald Trump, asked Cuban how industries might evolve in post-coronavirus America. “You’ve said … not only is your brand going to be associated with how you handled and comported yourself with your employees in this that’ll last for decades, there are going to be companies that are going to be built during this and after this time that are going to last for a generation. … Where do you see those companies being built?”
