An observation on the mercurial rise of ESG with John Goldstein, Managing Director of Sustainable Finance at Goldman Sachs

In the last four decades, real wages of the bottom half of Americans by income have grown by 0.2% a year—essentially, remaining flat. Years of this stagnation have led to even sharper disparity in wealth, where the top 1% by wealth hold 15 times more wealth than the bottom 50% (in other words, they are on average 750 times wealthier). Frequent economic shocks, such as in 1979, 1990, 2000, 2008 and 2020 have served to exacerbate these inequalities by driving economic instability, food and shelter insecurity, and desperation among American workers.

Our emerging generations, the vast majority of who will build their lives in increasingly crowded, chaotic and competitive cities, are hungering for a clear and common sense of purpose, but can we offer them one? From ecological exigency to ongoing and intolerable community inequality; to questions of privacy in an ever-connected world, we have reached a critical point in human history; a state of emergency that requires immediate and collective action.

An exclusive interview with Robert Herjavec on how to stay ahead of emergent threats to our democracy

To date, Canadians have seemed relatively powerless against technological assaults to our democracy. Public education of the ongoing threat is moving orders of magnitude slower than those actors perpetrating it. Those who seek to destabilize our elections deal with politically polarizing topics that have a natural constituency. Attempting to separate fact from fiction in this realm is a very tricky grey area — for social media, the government and the citizen alike.

What side of the digital divide will you be on?

From ecological exigency, to ongoing and intolerable community inequality, to a sense of eroding trust in an ever-divided world, we have reached a critical point in human history; a state of emergency that requires a forum for balanced, inclusive, and meaningful discussion.

What side of the digital divide will you be on?

Our emerging generations, the vast majority of whom will build their lives in increasingly crowded, chaotic and competitive cities, are hungering for a clear and common sense of purpose, but can we offer them one?

From ecological exigency, to ongoing and intolerable community inequality, to a sense of rapidly eroding trust in an ever-connected world, we have reached a critical point in human history; a state of emergency that requires a profound shift towards more meaningful dialogue in order to overcome.
