An Article from Wikipedia: Environmental, social and corporate governance

Please, go to the above link. I reckon  this article provides very interesting information. It says: “Environmental, social and governance(ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a company or business.”

So, what do you think, do people think about sustainability or the ethical impact of their investment in a company or business,

or do they just think where they can get the highest profit?

Here is also an interesting link to Market Governance Mechanisms (MGMs):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Market_governance_mechanism

In this Wikipedia article it says:

Market governance mechanisms(MGMs) are formal or informal rules that have been consciously designed to change the behaviour of various economic actors – including individuals, businesses, organisations and governments – to encourage sustainable development.

Well known MGMs include fair trade certification, the European Union Emission Trading System and Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES).

MGMs, meanwhile, are not to be confused with market-based instruments, for MGMs, as a group, includes command and control regulations as well as regulatory economics. As such, MGM is a broader classification.

    “World’s top money manager tells CEOs: Profits aren’t enough, do good for society”

    The above is a headline to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald. You can find it here:

    And here is another interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald:

    http://www.smh.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/the-dumbest-idea-in-finance-20180117-p4yykm.html

    The question is; “Is the ‘dumbest idea’ in capitalism on its last legs?

    “It has been described as the ‘dumbest idea in the world’, it might be the worst idea in finance, and it looks like it’s finally falling out of favour. . . . “
