The World is Not Enough - Calling for a More Ethical Approach to Personal Finance

Written by Richard Green

At a time whenrepparttar entire world’s attention is focused onrepparttar 147514 problems of world debt, withrepparttar 147515 Live 8 ( ) concerts,repparttar 147516 G8 summit in Scotland,repparttar 147517 Make Poverty History Campaign ( ) (MPH) andrepparttar 147518 various anti-poverty marches, it seems that everyone wantsrepparttar 147519 world’s governments to behave more ethically towardsrepparttar 147520 manner in which international finance is conducted. This is obviously a laudable attitude to take, and has gained immense momentum with such a groundswell of public opinion that evenrepparttar 147521 UK Chancellor, Gordon Brown, has stated he is planning to participate inrepparttar 147522 Make Poverty History demonstration in Edinburgh duringrepparttar 147523 G8 summit.

Mr Brown has urged world leaders to follow up their decision on debt cancellation forrepparttar 147524 poorest countries with a doubling of aid and fairer trade rules.

The Chancellor said, "This is a day forrepparttar 147525 people not for politicians. It isrepparttar 147526 people's voice that must be heard."

Whilstrepparttar 147527 support from such a prominent member ofrepparttar 147528 British cabinet with his accompanying statements thatrepparttar 147529 world was "angry" and "outraged" overrepparttar 147530 poverty in Africa, which has continued despite repeated past pledges fromrepparttar 147531 richer nations, has been welcomed by many who believe thatrepparttar 147532 various organised events could have an influence onrepparttar 147533 leaders who attendedrepparttar 147534 summit, others see his words as hypocrisy.

Human rights lawyer, Aamar Anwar, said "Mr Brown, along with Tony Blair and George Bush, arerepparttar 147535 people who are responsible for poverty and starvation aroundrepparttar 147536 world…The G8 is proposing spending £30bn onrepparttar 147537 alleviation of poverty…It sounds like a lot but it is absolute peanuts when it is compared torepparttar 147538 £280bn that was made available forrepparttar 147539 war in Iraq."

The trouble is that although there has been much talking and finger pointing atrepparttar 147540 rich and powerful Governments ofrepparttar 147541 world, with claims thatrepparttar 147542 way they are running international finances does not stand up to moral scrutiny, how many people can genuinely look at their own finances and state that they themselves are doing everything they can to help, and that they are ethically above reproach? Does their bank or building society lend their savings to companies who are involved in activities that can range from weapons manufacturing, gambling, pornography, tobacco, scientific animal testing to child labour, or do they instead direct their investment towards activities which have a positive social and/or ecological impact?
