Summary note
"It sounds like an oxymoron: Can you really make money as a socially responsible investor? The answer is, unquestionably, yes. The way you invest can contribute not only to your bottom line but also to a just and fair society. In Socially Responsible Investing, the movement's pioneer and the name behind the Domini 400 Social Index - Amy Domini - shows you how." "By following Domini's methods for screening companies, you'll learn how to: select stocks based on social and ethical considerations; use your power as a shareholder to communicate with companies and convince them to make positive social changes - from environmental practices to human rights; and invest in your community and make a difference locally."--Jacket.
