Re: PEP: any eyesore in Pro-social portfolio

Mainly for Ro and Alyce: The idea that there is such a definable thing as SRI interests me, the vagaries and armwaving aspects of its practice at MF frustrate and repel me. No doubt a lot of you wonder why I bother? If there is a rational testable [more]

Re: Berkshire Hathaway & Social Responsibility
