Episode details

ESG scores and investing (Environmental, Social, Governance) is controversial in many circles, and states are moving to divest from companies like BlackRock pushing these assets. Maybe none of that made sense, but my guest Mike Viola is here to explain a very impactful new concept in business and what it means for you.

Mike Viola is the head of analytics at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE). He previously spent five years in investment research, helping create one of the first databases of ESG and values-based investments, and is a Young voices contributor. Find him on Twitter: @mf_viola.
