Replying to LO6467 --

Andrew Moreno did not seem engaged by my offerings on using social values,
via investment funds, to influence corporate behaviour.

Andrew I found you message hard to quote from and was talking about such
things as mutual funds & Unit trusts rather than arrangements between
individual. Let me try one example on you. You said

>I don't think throwing money at corporations, whether they are green or
ethical or not, will develop double-loop learning. [Probably the best we
can hope for in companies is double loop learning].

[Personally I suspect if that's all you hope for that's all you will get/
perceive but that is a different part of the issue]

When you get back from your global hitch-hike start a Unit Trust dedicated
to investing, and holding for the longer terms, stock/ bonds/ or whatever
in companies that display whatever comes after double-loop learning in
your lexicon [can I call it treble loop FTSOA. Offer them preferential
[say a quarter point under market] finance; an advantage that, coupled
with their treble loop learning should translate into success and enable
you to pay at least market to those who invested with you.

If 1. You are right and 2. enough people agree with you you and they will
both make money and create wealth.

[I do not mean to challenge your value of maximum results with minimum
external resources by the way. If it gets in the way treat the above as
hypothetical or offer to help someone else do it]
