Fund Fight

For anyone who's curious, I have a piece up at The New Republic today on socially responsible investing (no need to subscribe to read it). It's basically a riff on the Los Angeles Times' investigation into the Gates Foundation's seedy investments. I'm actually much more positive about SRI than the headline seems to imply, but I do think there are some limits to the whole idea that are worth keeping in mind.
