The Ethical Investor is, despite its flaws, as thorough and comprehensive a treatment of the problems of universities and corporate responsibility as might be desired. It should be required reading for university trustees, and it offers many valuable insights to the general reader. Although it may appear that student and faculty interest has diminished somewhat during the past two years, it is nearly a certainty that this has been more the result of an intelligent and sincere response by university administrators and trustees than of any profound change in the climate of opinion. If the universities continue to respond in a thoughtful and reasonable way, they can make an enormous contribution to the cause of social justice, and they need not suffer in the process.
