Ethics Scholar Interview: Mike Posner, Professor of Ethics and Finance and Co-Director for the Center of Business and Human Rights at NYU Stern School of Business

"One of the biggest challenges and also biggest opportunities is to create reliable metrics and indicators to assess corporate human rights performance. A number of ratings and other firms work to evaluate what are termed ESG assessments. The environmental and governance aspects are now being reported on quite actively. The S, the labor and human rights component, is still very weak, and company performance as opposed to promises and procedures are not being effectively measured. Improving the measurement of company performance on human rights is a priority area for us going forward."

How should the FED approach regulating culture? Zaring seems to suggest that they shouldn’t. >>
