An Interview with PaulSyd

Last updated: 10/11/2013
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
PaulSyd:
Yes. I don't believe in any kind of disconnect between business investment and the real world.
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
PaulSyd:
Not really. I'm reasonably well known as a writer, but wouldn't have used up a second yet.
The Fool:
What was the most significant discovery of the last century?
PaulSyd:
DNA. It's the modern equivalent of the invention of fire.
