    Early in 2018, BlackRock asset management chair Larry Fink issued a statement declaring growing public demand for companies to serve a social purpose. He asserted that, increasingly, both public and private companies must be able to explain their social and environmental impacts and be able to demonstrate leadership to drive prosperity and security--not just for their own investment returns--but for all. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill hails this paradigm shift suggested by Mr. Fink and proposes a World Ocean Fund for investment-based forward-looking technologies, sustainability and responsibility in markets to shape the 21st century and beyond.
