I Prayed have prayed
Father, uproot the perverse ideologies that have taken hold of our nation's corporations. Restore truth, and uproot evil, Lord.

We need to train the next generation of leaders how to stop the liberal takeover of corporations before it’s too late.

From The College Fix. Troy University students this fall will have an opportunity to learn about moral and anti-woke business practices, thanks to a free-market center on campus.

Get involved in state-level prayer with IFA.

 

“The Free Enterprise Scholars program seeks to educate undergraduates about the morals and values of good and ethical business,” Professor Alan Mendenhall told The College Fix.

The program will be hosted through the Manuel H. Johnson Center for Political Economy, of which Mendenhall is executive director.

The business professor explained the problem with corporations pushing liberal policies:

When businesses advocate ‘woke’ policies and leftist social-justice initiatives, they seem to be responding to criticisms, real or imagined, that companies don’t contribute to society simply by producing goods and services, creating jobs, or improving the lives of their shareholders, investors, employees, and consumers.

Founded in 2010, the Johnson Center’s mission is to teach undergraduate business students about the moral uprightness of a free economy.

The program will include numerous activities and books to foster a free-market mindset among students. “Our program will teach a wide range of texts, from Jim Otteson’s Seven Deadly Economic Sins to Vivek Ramaswamy’s Woke, Inc.,” Mendenhall told The Fix. “Students will read and discuss books in an extracurricular reading group, listen to and meet with monthly speakers, and receive training on op-ed writing.”

Mendenhall told The Fix that Professor Daniel Sutter, the center’s director of research and academic programs, “deserves much of the credit” for the new project.

“He and I both read Ramaswamy’s Woke, Inc. around the same time and were on the same page about showing young people the dangers of sliding down the slippery slope toward wokeism,” Mendenhall said in his email. “One of those dangers, of course, is ethical: Just look at the allegations against BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s asset management strategy.” BlackRock has come under criticism for its embrace of environmental, social and governance standards for investing, which some say place a liberal political agenda over maximizing returns for investors.
