ACCF Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Dr. Pinar Cebi Wilber praised the bipartisan deal struck by House Democrats and the White House on the USMCA trade agreement.
Last year, a report commissioned by the American Council for Capital Formation, a non-profit, found 139 purported “proxy adviser errors” across 94 different companies. But in a letter to the SEC last month, the CII said that when it delved into the ACCF report, it found that “most of the claimed errors were actually disagreements on analysis and methodologies.”
There is no question about the importance of the North American trade pact to the economies of the three parties, as outlined by a recent ACCF report. Unfortunately, the pact’s economic merits have not been enough to motivate a speedy ratification by the U.S. This short report looks at the issues raised by the Democrats as a stumbling block for ratification and other concerns about the future of USMCA emerging due to the uncertainty created by Chinese trade war.

Studies have found that the two firms can swing 20% of votes in proxy elections. An American Council for Capital Formation review last year found that 175 asset managers with $5 trillion of assets voted with ISS recommendations 95% of the time. Activist hedge-fund investors often enlist the proxy firms to shake up management, for better or worse.
