Suggestion for a 4th Bottom Line

A 4th Bottom Line for Socially Responsible Investment



I have always believed that with every crisis comes an opportunity.

What opportunities can we find? As an educator involved with

non-profits, I can see the current grant making practice reeling in

shock. I would say the days of charity are over. The growing

'challenge' based funding opportunities, and the 'challenge' based

learning initiatives which are emerging give evidence of a new model.

Excerpt from 'ZERO Greenhouse Emissions - The Day the Lights Went Out - Our Future World' - Chaper 4 - The Day Before.



www.strategicbookpublishing.com/ZEROGreenhouseEmissions.html



The coal industry and the political parties supporting them would have us believe they can continue with the fossilized carbon release and offer up for our comfort, the silver bullet, of “Clean Coal Technology” and “Carbon Capture and Storage—CCS.”

Obama: Volunteerism 2.0

President-elect Barack Obama understood the subtle difference between utilizing volunteers to achieve an objective, and embracing volunteers as the objective. He created free space for collaborative efforts. The interests of the volunteer, the campaign, and Mr Obama were able to find convergence. He was not a leader with a thousand helpers. He became the leader of a… Continue

WILL ZAIBATSU OFFENSIVE BE ACCOMPANIED BY NEW JAPANESE MILITARISM?

Erle Frayne Argonza



In a previous article, this writer articulated the success of the Japanese Zaibatsu offensive. As one ought to realize, the success of the Zaibatsu offensive came at the expense of other markets, notably the North’s. Intellectually bankrupt as they are, the policy makers and technocrats of the North never foresaw the catastrophic consequences of predatory policies more so those concerning finance that came from their Japanese partners.



Today, Zaibatsus… Continue

Power of the Forest, by James Perakis

perakisj-1-with-caption1 Western Kenya is one of the most densely populated rural areas in the world, putting tremendous pressure on natural resources in the region. In Kakamega district, agricultural expansion, cattle grazing, fuel wood collection, and logging have reduced the once mighty indigenous rainforest to only 240 square kilometers. This trend is likely to continue, it seems, despite efforts by government… Continue

UN Assessment of HIV efforts in Southeast Asia

(UNDP: Jakarta) - A rise in migration within South-East Asia, and the conditions under which some people move, could make millions more vulnerable to HIV infection. A groundbreaking country-by-country assessment of HIV and migration among ASEAN countries reveals that despite their contributions to national economies, migrants have little or no right to legal or social protection and generally lack access to HIV/AIDS services and information.

ZAIBATSU GLOBALIZATION ‘VOODOO ECONOMICS’ BOWING OUT

Erle Frayne Argonza



Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!



Let me share to you at this moment some notes regarding the ‘globalization’ experiment and the flawed policies that sustained it. There has been much ballyhoo about the global economy’s integration, over the last three (3) decades, as having been carved out supposedly by the Anglo-Saxon policy architects, using Thatcher & Reagan as the face for the ‘neo-liberal’ policy regime they installed.



Little do… Continue

Facebook Tries to Woo Marketers
