    Financial services firm Morningstar "may be furthering the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel," 17 attorneys general said in a letter sent on Tuesday and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon—and they want answers as to why the firm appears to target and downgrade companies working alongside the Jewish state to combat terrorism. The state officials say they have "serious concerns" that Sustainalytics, Morningstar’s research arm, relies on metrics that inherently portray Israel as an aggressor in its conflict with the Palestinians, and that negatively impacts any companies working with Israel to prevent terrorism. The attorneys general—who represent...

    Asset managers like BlackRock are pushing to create ESG 401(k) funds in part because they can charge higher fees. According to Morningstar, the asset-weighted average expense ratio of U.S. "sustainable" funds was 0.61% in 2020 compared to 0.41% for all open-ended mutual and exchange-traded funds and 0.12% for passive funds. This difference can reduce retirement savings by tens of thousands of dollars over a few decades. (snip) All of this amounts to a backdoor rewrite of Erisa, one of the better laws of the last 50 years. Progressives are moving across the Biden administration to steer private capital to implement...

    On top of all the challenges Israel’s new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett already faces in trying to hold an unlikely, ideologically-diverse ruling coalition together, analysts say he also has to deal with a concerted attempt by his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu to sabotage the government’s work and bring it down. On June 13, Israel’s parliament swore in a new eight-party coalition government – led by right-wing nationalist Bennett – featuring an alliance of left-wing, centrist and right-wing parties, as well as a party representing Palestinian citizens of Israel. ----snip Netanyahu and Likud are determined to undermine the ability of this government...

    In 2009, Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist, traveled to Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to visit Muslim holy sites located in the Kingdom. Once there, he disappeared only to reappear later in some peculiar online rants, claiming to be residing in Virginia and alternatively, in Arizona, and expressing a desire to return to Iran. Amiri, who conducted nuclear research at the military affiliated Malek Ashtar University of Technology and worked for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, was said to possess a treasure trove of classified information on Iran’s illicit nuclear program. On his YouTube channel, he alleged that he was kidnapped by...

Some apparent fellow travellers may actually be “concealed party members": members of the CP who conceal their membership. Which of these classifications is applicable to the Kerrys is a question this series leaves unresolved. This series does not argue for any direct...

    State-sponsored hackers penetrate the systems of other nations. It happens regularly. The United States does it. China does it. Russia does it. Iran does it. Sometimes, hacking reveals that someone in the hacking nation is working with the enemy. When that happens, someone dies. Sometimes, a secretary of state receives e-mails — on her unsecured, private e-mail server — about an Iranian scientist who is providing information to the United States and then that scientist is later executed for espionage.Throughout the scandal surrounding her use of an unsecured, private e-mail server, Hillary Clinton claimed that she “never sent or received...

    ( – The Obama administration’s new ambassador to Azerbaijan raised eyebrows this week with a gesture interpreted by some as paying homage to the country’s late dictator – a one-time KGB general installed by military coup who oversaw an autocratic regime before handing power to his son. “The new U.S. envoy to Azerbaijan, Richard Morningstar, has honored memory of national leader of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev,” the Azeri news site News.Az reported. “The newly appointed ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the United States in Azerbaijan visited the monument to great leader in the park in front of the Heydar Aliyev’s Palace....

    Tokyo stocks tumbled nearly 3 percent Thursday to the lowest closing levels in about two weeks as gloomy April retail sales rekindled worries about the U.S. economic outlook and a stronger yen exacerbated damage to Japanese exporters. The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 246.76 points, or 2.64 percent, from Wednesday to 9,093.73, a closing low since May 1, when it logged 8,977.37.

    In a previous commentary, I discussed three macroeconomic scenarios that could affect the markets in general and long-term bonds in particular. These are just three of many possible scenarios that may happen in the future. I did not assign any probability to the scenarios but only showed things that occurred in the past and that, in some different form, may re-emerge in the future. In this article I would like to look at another possible scenario that some readers suggested: stagflation and a sustained boom in commodity prices. Stagflation is a recurring topic when the economy is growing slowly or...

    If you think Ward Churchill is controversial in his academic setting, you should see how divisive a force he is in the Indian world. The University of Colorado professor, who has set off a firestorm with the publicizing of his 3-year-old essay rationalizing the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has been a lightning rod for years among those involved in American Indian arts, academics and activism. He simultaneously inspires great admiration and loathing. "He is horribly divisive, and he is a thug," said Suzan Shown Harjo, president of the Morningstar Institute in Washington, a national American Indian rights organization. "He's gone...

    THE TRUE HEROES OF LIBERTY If you believe the news media, the war in Iraq has been an unmitigated disaster. I disagree. In fact, I think it will prove to be one of the greatest victories for freedom and democracy since the fall of the Berlin Wall. It is also in Iraq that some of the greatest, most noble soldiers in the war for the liberation of the oppressed are now arising -- the citizens of Iraq who will soon risk their lives to vote. America, the great seedbed and hope for freedom and democracy around the world, barely had...

    Special Report Morningstar's Take on the Fund Industry Scandal by Morningstar Analysts | 11-20-03 | 10:00 AM These are trying times for fundholders. The mutual fund industry is supposed to be a safe haven for small investors, but allegations have surfaced that fund companies have allowed certain shareholders to get preferential trading deals, while some fund managers have taken advantage of their positions by market-timing their own funds. The allegations are far-reaching and demonstrate huge holes in the fund industry's fiduciary responsibilities. To give investors more guidance on how to respond to developments at specific fund companies, we've collected Morningstar's...
