Christian State Official Stands Up To ESG Agenda

Allison Ball, Treasurer of Kentucky, is an attorney and a person of faith. As such, she takes her legal and ethical obligation to oversee state finances, including pension funds, as an inviolable duty. That is why she has resisted industry pressure to embrace the financial fad of ESG investing, which replaces the goal of the best financial outcome for retirees with goals of political and social outcomes. Whether it's pushing to eliminate profitable fossil fuel investments from portfolios or to use shareholder money to vote for pro-abortion resolutions, Treasurer Ball and other state officials are resisting attempts to replace prudent financial management with an imprudent social agenda. She joins Jerry on this episode of Business in the Kingdom to tell her story.
