This book, concerned with the theory and practice of social investment as a profession, offers a conceptual foundation for investment policy and research, and reviews empirical studies supporting new directions in investment policies. It also provides guidelines for fiduciaries, based on the best available knowledge of corporate behavior, and presents researchers with key hypotheses to follow in gathering data for the evaluation of social investment norms.
Reviews & endorsements
"This is a work reflecting much current interest and concern. I've read it with real advantage; so, I am sure, will others who are concerned with corporate government and its social effects." John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard UniversitySee more reviews
"This work represents an important and comprehensive contribution to a controversial area, and it can admirably serve as a point of entry into the issue for either the practicing manager or the college student." Choice
"The author does a good job of outlining the detailed indicators that social investors should look at in making investment decisions. Certainly this book is must reading for professionals in the field of social investment and is of great interest to social economists as a good example of applied social economics."
