There is a great power in aligning your values with your investments. Don't fall prey to the following popular myths.
  1. SRI funds do not perform as well as regular investments.
  2. Big multi-national corporations are not doing anything wrong.
  3. SRI funds do not screen out many of the problem companies.
  4. Some companies are better than others, but none are good.
  5. Socially screened funds are just the latest investment fad.
  6. It is better to take social action locally, as an individual.
  7. Focusing on money and investing will not change anything.
  8. I really do not need to think about investing for my future.
  9. The small amount of money I have won’t make a difference.
10. It is hard to find reliable, current information on this topic.
