ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The Center for Competitive Politics today released a report on Activist Investing intended to dispute claims made by some groups that corporations and businesses should be wary of the “economic risks” posed by engaging in political speech.
The materials, currently posted on CCP’s website are an attempt to document the efforts of some groups to engage in what is known as “corporate democracy,” or the managed and directed attempt to convince businesses that they put themselves at market risk by speaking out politically.
The information released today includes a report by the CCP Legal Department on Activist Investing, a supplemental report by J.W. Verret of the George Mason University Law School and an Issue Toolkit with other information outlining the issue from the perspective of CCP.
