Nick Robins: The Ecology of Growth

Britain has been among the worst-affected countries, losing perhaps five years of economic growth following the pricking of the credit bubble - predicted with precision by Ann Pettifor in her 2006 classic, The Coming First World Debt Crisis . Unemployment has soared, public-sector deficits have ballooned and a new age of austerity beckons. Business, politicians and the media are all calling for a rapid return to growth to create jobs, repair public finances and pay for a creaking ... market research, surveys and trends
ETF DAILY NEWS » The Gold ETF's Current Highs Are Not Sustainable ...
Even though gold has backed off a bit in recent days, it’s still hovering around historic highs, closing at $1,224.10/oz on May 17, 2010. And given the recent euro crisis, interest in the yellow  metal—from both individual and institutional investors—is at a fever pitch.

KIWANJA, Congo: Thousands of hungry and homeless lined up for food on Friday deep in rebel-held territory in eastern Congo as the United Nations began its first large-scale delivery in the area since fighting broke out in late October. More than 100 tons of food were going to 50,000 civilians in the area north of the provincial capital of Goma over the next four days, said Marcus Prior, a spokesman for the UN World Food Program.

ESG Investing Can Restore the Legitimacy of Financial Markets: Pax World's Joe ...
These crises, in their pathos and urgency, have shifted public attention away from what had been The Crisis: the collapse and tentative recovery of global financial markets. We have considered ESG perspectives on the financial crisis since it first made headlines, in fall of 2008 . Some socially responsible investors (SRI) saw signals of trouble before it surfaced, as in the case of subprime lending. From the ESG perspective, the crisis came from “ short-termism ” – a confluence of quick trading, information asymmetry and conflicts of interest among market players, and a deceptive diffusion of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The global-warming commitments of the G20 -- which now carries more clout than the G8--went from nebulous to non-existent: The G20's draft promise going into the meetings of investing in green technologies faded into a mere commitment to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

"Each of us has a part to play in a new future that will benefit all of us. As we recover from this recession, the transition to clean energy has the potential to grow our economy and create millions of jobs -– but only if we accelerate that transition.
