The litany of Wall Street scandals in the last few years has left many wondering whether ethical investing is an oxymoron at worst, or a utopian dream at best. In this presentation, we will ask what are the key moral principles that make an investment ethical? And, what can we make of the tremendous growth in socially responsible funds among ethically conscious individuals and foundations? Finally, are efforts towards corporate responsibility sincere, or are there important issues that corporate America is overlooking? The key question is: How can we invest in a way that positively impacts society according to our own beliefs and values?
