"There are many alternative funds these days that allow you to invest your money in “green” or “socially responsible” enterprises. They just don’t yield the maximum available return."
What is a socially responsible enterprise?
Is this something that attempt to wash away the guilt of years of profiteering and exploitation?
It reminds me of the guy T. Boone Pickens who has been profiting off of the exploitation of the land for decades, now decides he wants to invest a bulk of his money for clean green energy.
Those enterprises may not "yield the maximum available return" at this moment, but in time they will.
I see it as more foresight, or "investment strategy" to get in while it is getting hot on Pickens part.
I have a feeling this "green" craze will exploit the earth and the people, just as much as the oil addicts have done.
