Green - The Next Bubble To Burst?

Pages 6 and & of today's Independent Financial Review make an interesting read. Are asset price inflations ('bubbles') the result of the madness of crowds? Or are they the result of a process driven by a combination of economic, financial market and government policies and practices? Eric Janszen argues the second cause, and looks at how US legislation is starting to inflate a new bubble around "green" products and services.

We see similar trends here and encourage investors to look beyond the hype and be cautious about the motives of those giving you advice - Government or private sector.
