Ethical Investing Blog Carnival Last Edition

Welcome to the final edition of Slackerwealth's Ethical Investing Carnival.

There were 24 submissions this time around. Here is the one that made the cut.

Dorian Wales presents Free Market Proponents Call for Regulation on Speculative Oil Futures Trading: Define Irony posted at The Personal Financier, saying, "Analysts say speculative oil trading is to blame for gas prices at $4 a gallon. Congress considers regulation and legislation. What happened to market forces of supply and demand?"

The author makes an argument in favor of more regulations. In the process, futures contracts and the invisible hand are explained, and we are treated to a few quotes from Ayn Rand, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and Thomas Hobbes.
