Summary/Abstract: We note, therefore, that one of the notable problems we are currently facing is of an economic nature, of major importance, with real possibilities to destabilize local, national or international security. If a state has enough leverage to cushion the bad impact of sudden changes / threats, a private company cannot do the same. At the same time, a weak management leads to the bankruptcy and disappearance of a firm on the market, which cannot happen with a state (in the sense that it can go bankrupt but does not disappear, and the economic crisis turns into a political one), as Barry Buzan et al. State (2010, pp. 154-160). From another perspective, however, one of the principles of economic security is that we go into any analysis on the assumption that economic agents work more competitively on an uncertain market. It goes without saying that in the economic environment we cannot speak of perfect safety and balance. So uncertainty increases competitiveness, stimulates creative spirit, analytical and predictive capabilities. The aim of this contribution is to investigate the capacity of the business environment to absorb shocks and to set sustainable goals translated into its agenda setting. After the economic crisis of 2008-2014, the vast majority of business have assessed their mechanism of equilibrium bringing forward a new strategy to deal with complex macro-systemic problems.
