I am not a regular on the board, but I figure if anyone on TMF will know the answer to this question, the SRI board will. I understand that some people adopt SRI as a kind of moral stance, but from a practical standpoint, has anyone found any data to suggest that divestment from offensive companies actually causes them harm and thus gives them an incentive to change? I know that boycotts and strikes have had such measurable effects, and I try to support these. But I haven't seen any hard data that shows that divestment has worked, even in the case of South Africa. Please don't flame, I am really interested in this question and hope you folks can help.
