“Investment in the Balance”: Al Gore’s latest entrepreneurial endeavor

Al Gore’s at it again. This from the NY Post:

The former vice president is starting a mutual-fund management company that will invest in companies that combine environmental friendliness and social accountability with profitability.

If that sounds logical on the surface, consider this… To Al Gore and his cohorts, it is impossible to be “socially accountable” while being profitable, because money is a divider, separating classes and creating anger which is fueled by politicians like Gore running for office. In addition, it’s impossible to be profitable and environmentally friendly, since all you’d do is buy an SUV or something else that would destroy the earth, with all the profits.

This business will go about as well as that “Gore TV” idea. Too bad Al didn’t get that off the ground, because investors from his mutual fund company could have starred in Gore TV’s hit show, “Who wants to be an ex-millionaire?”

For now, people who dump their money into “Recount Mutual” can rest easy… they may lose it all, but at least they’ll be mentioned in Gore’s new book, “Investment in the Balance.” Just remember, nothing is more socially accountable and environmentally friendly than poverty, so if you lose your shirt, not to mention house and cars, on this investment– You’re saving the planet!
