Appearances: PragerU – ESG is Ruining the U.S. Economy

From PragerU: Investment firms that focus on ESG—Environmental, Social, and Governance—promise you can get rich and do good at the same time. But in reality, it has been a losing investment strategy that threatens the U.S. economy and people’s savings. PragerU CEO Marissa Streit speaks with former Carl’s Jr. and Hardee's CEO Andy Puzder who warns that ESG is one of the most dangerous things happening to America today. This video, which appears on, was made possible by a generous gift from The Peter & Judy Copses Foundation.
