Bypassing Wall Street
2012, 27 minutes, Ethical Markets Media
"Asset manager Katherine Collins had a successful career with Fidelity when she decided to pursue a degree from Harvard Divinity School. Now the CEO of Honeybee Capital, she believes it is possible to combine ethics with financial trading, and that bypassing Wall Street in favor of Main Street is one way to do it. In this program, Collins and Hazel Henderson explore socially responsible investments, touching on deregulation, high-frequency trading, and the fact that more and more retail investors are swearing off publicly-traded companies. Also discussed: the Darwin Project, which is based on the premise that human progress is due to cooperation, not competition."
