What Corporate America Doesn’t Tell You They’re Doing

In this episode, Dad and I spoke with Vivek Ramaswamy. We discussed ESG, index funds, Blackrock and Larry Fink, the energy crisis in Europe, optimal resistance, the invitation to play, and more.

Vivek Ramaswamy is a former Technology and Biotech entrepreneur whose most recent venture is an asset management company called Strive. Vivek founded Strive to offer an alternative to the popular and destructive ESG model of asset management. Vivek is also the author of the books “Woke Inc.” and “Nation of Victims,” linked below.
