An Interview with MikeBuckley

Last updated: 7/4/1998
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
Tom Gardner did mention me and my experimental work about the YPEG in a piece of his published by SmartMoney magazine. He failed to mention that the experiment was losing big-time to the S&P 500. That work has since been abandoned.
The Fool:
If you could change one thing about your workplace, corporate culture, or family life, what would it be?
Eliminating the the need to work would change two of the three in a way I'd like!
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
Only to a certain extent. I don't pretend to know all the stuff that goes on in the companies I invest in that I'd rather they not do. There probably isn't a company in the universe that is entirely "clean" on the subject of being socially responsible.
