Child education: a conservative MP “seems to be advocating the use of force”

9 October 2021 at 17h46

[...] to seem clearly to be advocating the use of force without defining its limits, such as Ms. Block’s mail-out does, is particularly disturbing.

Without some clarification on her part, it could be seen as advocating a form of discipline for which there is not one iota of scientific data to indicate it is anything but destructive.

Nicolas G. Hayek, founder of Swatch, condemns the dominance of the “acrobats and jugglers in the financial circus”.

“Final example:  the guy who proposed that I buy into a company that was very expensive and active mainly in textiles, while I’m a watchmaker.  “That doesn’t matter,” he told me, “we’ll start some rumours in the market that will make the share value fall, and as for the textiles, we’ll look after that part.”  All this illustrates the really deplorable mindset of some market professionals.  And the worst thing is, thinking that a publically-traded company should be managed with this mindset”. - Nicolas G.

Germany: a governmental coalition to restrict the pay of managers

19 June 2021 at 14h31

I am glad to note that Chancellor Angela Merkel is sharing the same ideas as me! This is what we probably call the feminine common sense!


BERLIN (Germany) - BRIAN PARKIN AND RAINER BUERGIN (Bloomberg News) - Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition pushed a law through parliament aimed at restricting manager pay at German public companies, going further than steps proposed in the United States or Britain.

The package of measures includes steps to give supervisory boards more power to set salaries and financial penalties for executives who are found guilty of negligence.

Ensuring that men and women are equally represented on corporate boards

12 June 2021 at 14h03

On June 2, as part of a major reform I have undertaken to renew the management of publicly traded companies and Crown corporations, I introduced a bill in the Senate.

Bill S-238 would require publicly-traded companies, financial institutions and federal government enterprises to ensure gender parity on their boards of directors from now on.

Fine words and good intentions on promoting women’s equality on boards of directors are no longer enough.
