As I was about to publish today’s The Daily Habit, news came that “Hundreds of companies and executives released a letter on Wednesday condemning legislation that restricts ‘any eligible voter from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.'” Obviously, no one in the corporate world paid attention to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s scolding to stay out of politics. Why? Because it’s dawned on these companies that their business practices must be in step with their clients, and people are increasingly worried about fairness, equal access and long-term impact. Something too many GOP legislators see as obstacles to their political ambitions; A new study finds the disturbing foundation on which the fossil fuel business was built; Biden just made a historic appointment at the US Census Bureau; New Zealand is making a global statement with their new requirement of banks; and Facebook officially launches something people have been doing on the platform all along. Go beyond the headlines…
