LARRY FINK'S 2022 LETTER TO CEOS: The Power of Capitalism
It’s never been more essential for CEOs to have a consistent voice, a clear purpose, a coherent strategy, and a long-term view. Your company’s purpose is its north star in this tumultuous environment... Putting your company’s purpose at the foundation of your relationships with your stakeholders is critical to long-term success.

I believe the decarbonizing of the global economy is going to create the greatest investment opportunity of our lifetime. It will also leave behind the companies that don’t adapt, regardless of what industry they are in. And just as some companies risk being left behind, so do cities and countries that don’t plan for the future.
