How can we find bigger answers if we don’t ask bigger questions?

Every great idea,
Every breakthrough,
Started with a question
Someone asked the why
Poked holes in the way things are,
To see what they could become.
And right now, the world is facing some big questions.
About how to push forward without leaving people behind.
How to break with the past and create a better future.
So on behalf of more and more people,
BlackRock is asking bigger questions.
Bolder questions.
Questions that challenge convention
And give rise to new thinking.
Questions like:
How can valuing workers more lead to greater company value?
How can the economy go green, without putting communities in the red?
Because the bigger questions we ask, the bigger actions we can take.
Helping us tackle the biggest question of them all:
How can we all prosper?
Ask Bigger Questions

Every great idea, every breakthrough started with a question. And right now, the world is asking some really big questions. Although the answers won’t be simple, nor easy, we know that we have a responsibility to confront them.

Larry Fink: I really believe the transformation of leadership, the transformation of businesses is about more and more leaders in their focusing on things about their stakeholders. They're connecting with their employees deeper and broader, they’re connecting with the client broader and they're certainly trying to be more connected to their society. So much of that is in this letter it is about moving forward on better disclosure, more complete disclosure, especially in that zero climate change. And investing is something that is a powerful economic result. As we move towards a more sustainable world it's going to create great jobs, is going to create a you know a great environment, and so we should not be afraid of it we should all be embracing it and finding ways that we could you know be a part of that and I think this is one of the big messages in the 2021 letter.
