Big Business Smuggling Ideology Into The Finance World Through Scoring System – ESG

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance investing) is a dangerous and strategic scoring system emerging through asset management firms, like BlackRock, to smuggle ideology into the finance world in order to advance an anti-religious liberty agenda. There have been a series of actions taken by state financial officers such as Treasurers, Comptrollers, and Auditors General which question BlackRock and other asset managers and the punishment they are wielding upon those who deviate from their standards. The backlash is also coming from representatives, senators, governors and various potential presidential candidates who are concerned with this trend.
