Informative; well organized; an insider and an outsider's thoughtful viewpoints and analysis of this amazing story. Ultimately, though, it only depressed me to think that tiny Iceland will get to participate in Russia 2018 and the US will be on the sidelines.
Ben Downing made a strong case for his proposed legislation (S1225) and made me think a bit more about how greater investment in state concerns/job creation might be a natural result of such of a divestment plan. I was encouraged to hear that his proposal is phased although I am still uncomfortable with the fiduciary (he didn't like that word very much) risk of divestment given that the funds support state pensions, which are legislatively bound (how does the cosmos enforce this?) to achieve an 8% ROR, year after year.
