I don’t exactly connect with the occupy movement. My background is in futures and options trading, and the zero sum environment of the trading pits is as fair as it gets. Main street doesn’t realize exactly how fair it is, and if they do, they just don’t have the willpower to do anything about it. Despite what your local occupy patron might tell you, you do have a choice where you put your money.
With that said, go green or go home. How about investing in businesses that make and use sustainable products? You can choose to invest in companies that are doing something for the good of the environment and mankind. Granted, you might not make as much coin, but hey, you are going to get screwed anyway, right?
