Socially responsible investing

When it comes to size, socially responsible funds aren’t the biggest player in the $8 trillion fund world. But they pack a bigger punch than their size suggests, thanks to the pressure they bring by exposing social responsibility performance as well as bottom line performance.

Interesting article. I’ve owned PAXWX (one of the funds mentioned) for a while now.

Poparotti?

(bad pun, there)

So it seems Pavarotti is entering the pop music biz

Yet for years he rebuffed attempts by his record label, Decca, to record a non-classical album, as many of his operatic peers have done. He was finally convinced after one of his three adult daughters prodded him to listen to material she thought would be perfect for his legendary tenor. The result is a collection of sweeping ballads that has been a top seller on the classical crossover charts since its release in late September.

Well, now he’s gone and done it. I guess it’s only a matter of time before he’s spied topless in People magazine and goes off having 55 hour marriages…
