Slowing down investing

More about:

In this week's Earth Beat: as most of us are aware, since the financial meltdown, the world of high finance is a tangle of split-second trades, massive investment portfolios and bizarre financial products. It's fast and it's volatile. And when we're talking about pension money, volatile is not a word we want to hear.

Enter the Slow Money movement. It's trying to get people to not invest their retirement funds in who-knows-what faceless, unscrupulous global enterprise, but instead, to put their cash towards small, tangible and local businesses like a farm, or a brewery, perhaps.

Woody Tasch, founder of Slow Money and author of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money joins Earth Beat's host Marnie Chesterton.
