Steer our investments into higher moral ground

ANYONE who wants the world to adopt more sustainable farming and energy practices, and discourage exploitation, should insist that their financial advisers move their investments into only "ethical" investments. It's time we made the finance industry work for "us". If we all did it, we'd all profit. Maybe we start a movement and a date for the transition.

  • People need to start valuing a moral purchases more than they do today.

  • It´s a very good idea. That said, I think we could develop ways of implementing it. Creating indicators, rankings, of "ethical" investments is a good start, because people need to know what are the "ethical" investments in order to choose them instead of others (the Brazilian BM&F Bovespa, our national version of "Wall Street", has made something like this). Taxes on "bad" investments help too. What else?

  • How neat! Is it ralely this simple? You make it look easy.
