Article on diversity

The Finnish Business and Policy Forum EVA (Elinkeinoelämän valtuuskunta) just published my column on diversity. In the article I basically state that diversity needs an economic justification in order for big things to start happening. A bit like what the Stern report did for the climate change debate. My articles headline is Jääkarhuista ja murjaaneista, which is a bit difficult to translate. Jääkarhu means polar bear and murjaani is the character in the Finnish Christmas play whose face is painted black with shoe polish (see pic).

Just read the column, it was great!

And stop worrying on your Finnish language, you have even found new idioms, "aukeaa kuin Imatrankoski."
