FedSoc Events

Jun 13 2022 • 1 hr 34 mins

We recognize the risks of agency overreach when rulemaking seeks to impose ESG considerations on business. But to what extent have private banks and institutional investors also been able to leverage their economic power to shape firm behavior on climate and other ESG questions – outside of the democratic process? And if we worry that the administrative state lacks political accountability for contentious policy choices, should we also be concerned about the role of private economic influence?
Join us for a dinner at the Mayflower Hotel as our panelists discuss these questions and more.
