The article reports that activist and former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson is asking the group that oversees the $14.5 billion Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) fund, Columbus, to declare a moratorium on terminating all 69 of its active money managers and to evaluate each firm based on its performance. Jackson also said at least a portion of an upcoming Wall Street Project conference would be dedicated to talking about the Ohio BWC's actions and the implications.
