Diversity dividend?

Dr. James Thompson of Psychological comments examines the so-called diversity dividend: the idea that having increasing diversity, meaning of course more women and non-whites, on boards of directors and in other positions in a company results in greater profit or a better stock market price.

Dr. Thompson finds the “data”, such as it is, all but completely lacking. There’s no empirical support for the idea.

Yet the good folks at Davos and in other centers of Hive Mind activity like academia constantly spout nonsense like the diversity dividend. My question is this: do they really believe their own BS?…
