Zhu weighs in on fossil fuel divestment in Harvard Crimson

Maria ZhuMaria Zhu, assistant professor of economics, was interviewed for the Harvard Crimson article "University of California Divestment Decision Offers Insights Into Feasibility of Divestment at Harvard." Zhu says that the University of California’s decision could be "a sign that the tides are shifting" on universities’ economic views of investing in fossil fuels. “If it has a positive impact, I do believe more schools will eventually divest for financial reasons, given that most of them tend to think social implications of divesting are positive or neutral at worst," she says. 10/15/19
