Akin to such developments is the emergence of ‘green’ and ‘ethical’ development, which allow investors to profit from the proceeds of capitalism but only in ways consistent with their desire to avoid investing in the stocks and shares of companies considered to transgress various standards of ‘appropriate’ behaviour (Lewis and Mackenzie, 2000a, 2000b; Winnett and Lewis, 2000). Clearly, these examples are merely indicative and illustrative. There exist a range of other ‘everyday’ examples of performing and practising the economy otherwise, and they are the subject of the chapters of this book.
