    • Date: 03/06/20
    • Clarice Feldman, The Pipeline

    Silicon Valley Goliaths, using the technology and market forces at their disposal, have shut out of the marketplace Davids opposed to their preferred opinions on climate change. In his 20007 book, An Army of Davids, Glenn Reynolds, the founder of Instapundit, wrote optimistically that an army of ordinary people (“Davids”) could use technology and the market to beat […]

    • Rupert Darwall, City Journal

    ESG investing is already taking a toll on state pension funds—now it might transform the world’s largest private asset manager, too. “I don’t give a damn what these powerful corporations tell us and I don’t care about their profit margin.
