A Change Is Going To Come

I don’t usually see ads, so when one jumps out I’m intrigued.

In fact I wasn’t even sure this was an ad and it wasn’t linked back.

The image is linked back here.

I don't get it. Is this an ad about those N-waste sites Halliburton wants to set up in your backyard? The link looks like an investment company. Maybe I'm hopelessly dense.

We have investment companies that actually give a damn. I didn't realise it was to this level, but I'm thankful that it is.

If it is an investment company they give a damn about one thing: profit.

The proposed dumps are probably threatening the value of some of their investments.

I'm not saying that is all bad. Sometimes one person's greed keeps the other guy's greed in check.

PT, I know how odd it sounds, but ethical investment outfits have been developing here over the past 30 years.
I know I've directed managed trusts to them, and been willing to take a reduced return.
As the system has matured it has reacted to people who are aware of what drives the income and actually prefer to have a world to inhabit than a few extra bucks.
Maybe there would be a similar market in the US.

I am with DK...I guess I am dense too....

Interesting. I hadn't heard of that. I do know that there are companies that are very socially responsible and that they actually outperform the broader market.

Maybe with time, your investments will too. One thing is for sure, you are in at the ground level, and that is almost always a good thing.
