Some Questions We'll Consider ...


Now that returns for socially responsible investing (SRI) are competitive, what motivates people to invest with their consciences, putting their money where their hearts are? Who is the SRI investor: the hippy of yesterday, the cultural creatives of today, the activist youth of tomorrow? What results and new wrinkles have appeared since the movement of funds toward SRI ventures, and will that be enough to create the hoped for impact?
