Real Estate Investing Articles and the Big Lie that Knowledge is Power

Who said Knowledge is Power? Did You Fall For this Big Lie? I get concerned sometimes when I see people, especially those who read one too many real estate investing articles, believing that “knowledge is power”.
The truth is- the world is full of educated “failures”, is it not?
If knowledge were power, we’d all be taking orders from professors, librarians would run governments, and you would welcome the door-to-door Encyclopedia salesman warmly into your home.

Socially Responsible Investing and Your Portfolio

It could be said that socially responsible investors use both their heart and their head when it comes to making financial decisions. Socially responsible investing (SRI) integrates personal values and social and environmental concerns with investment decisions. SRI is also known as mission investing, sustainable investing, green investing, etc.

Where do you stand?

Whether liberal or conservative, there are causes to support in the SRI world. Some are concerned about tobacco and alcohol. Others are not. But there can also be crossover, as SR investments can be both environmentally friendly and anti-nuclear, for example.

The first SRI fund, started in 1971 in the U.S., grew to $2.29 trillion by the end of 2005. The Social Investment Forum reports that in 2010 the SRI market accounted for $3.07 trillion out of the total $25.2 trillion U.S. investment marketplace. Social investments in the U.S. grew 380 percent from 1995 to 2010.
