Green Party Show: Socially Responsible Investing

On Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 7pm, the Babylon Green Party featured Pisces Cafe co-owner and former stockbroker Jeffrey Arthur speaking about Ethical and Socially Responsible Investing. The location for the Babylon Green Party Gathering is at Pisces Cafe.

Arthur was employed in the financial field for a number of years, including a stint as a stockbroker. He survived the Asian Contagion, the Tech Bubble, Y2K crises, Derivatives, Elections, Irrational Exuberance, Venture Capitalists, NASDAQ 5000, Dow 10,000 (3 times,) Do-Not-Call Lists, wars-squirmishes-police actions (global, professional, and personal.) His moral outrage at the hilarious absurdity of the broken financial markets is not out of place at the Pisces Cafe in Babylon Village which he co-owns with Justine Poldino.
Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) is an investment strategy which combines the intentions to maximize both the common good and financial return. SRI is also referred to as triple bottom line investing, ethical investing, sustainable investing, or green investing. SRI now encompasses an estimated 10% of all U.S. investment — about $2.3 trillion out of $24 trillion in the U.S. investment marketplace. Socially responsible investors include individuals, corporations, universities, hospitals, foundations, insurance companies, public and private pension funds, nonprofit organizations, and religious institutions.
