Institutional investors push Google on China


Board recommends voting "Against"

If you read the proxy statement for the AGM, it's interesting to note that the google board of directors recommends voting AGAINST the proposal. While voting against shareholder proposals is common, it still blows my mind that such relatively simple proposals could be so disliked by the board. Of course it'll make Google struggle a bit in China, but it's the struggle that's important.

"Do no evil" isn't enough. It'd be nice to see Google step up to "Do good."
