Investment Week: “BlackRock study finds companies with more women in workforce outperform rivals”

BlackRock Inc is the world’s largest asset manager, with US$9.42 trillion in assets under management. It is a major player in the long-running global initiative to persuade companies to increase gender diversity on their bloards.

Our thanks to Jeff for this in Investment Week, a weekly publication. It is nothing short of scandalous that the publication uncritically accepts extracts from a Blackrock report which is clearly and misleadingly conflating correlation with causation. The evidence of a causal link between appointing more women to corporate boards and corporate financial DECLINE is here, on the Campaign for Merit in Business website.

  1. Black Rock has also converted America from a nation of homeowners to a nation of renters. They offered prices 25% over asking price within hours of a house getting listed, and soon had entire blocks converted to rentals. They are arguably one of the most evil companies out there.
