"Ritchie Lowry, Professor

...Professor Lowry's past and continuing research and teaching interests include community power structures, war and the military, social problems and public policy, corporate social responsibility, and socially responsible consuming and investing. For many years, he has been concerned with the issues of increasing militarism, state power, and secret government. His approach to social problems emphasizes what is wrong with most traditional social science paradigms and attempts to develop new, more radical alternatives which can result in more democratic and just social policies. Professor Lowry's latest book was Good Money: A Guide to Profitable Social Investing in the '90s (l993). Professor Lowry is founder and president of Good Money, Inc., which publishes a newsletter and other materials for socially and environmentally concerned consumers, investors and business people. He is a moderator and participant in several forums on the Internet that deal with the same subjects, and he maintains a Home Page for socially concerned investors and consumers on the World Wide Web..."
