ST. AUGUSTINE, FL—OCTOBER 16, 2008— Traffic to EthicalMarkets.com doubled in the last three weeks with the announcement of international financial markets hitting all-time lows since the Great Depression. Visitors from the U.S., Canada, Brazil, U.K., Australia, Austria, India and other countries sought answers and investing alternatives to the brick and mortar companies that are crumbling as a result of the subprime lending crisis.
“After years of promoting global market reform by focusing on the best practices, the most ethical, best-governed, greenest organizations to raise standards worldwide, we find OURSELVES deemed as one of the best modeling the behavior we’ve sought to inspire,” said Rosalinda Sanquiche, executive director of Ethical Markets Media, LLC. “The result – many around the world want to license our TV programs and invest in our business. We appreciate the vote of confidence but our mission is still to reform markets and get investors connected with the many other businesses and organizations which have been acting ethically all the time Wall Street has been lining it’s own pockets.”
Top hits included founder Hazel Henderson’s audio interview and article, “CHICAGO BOYS’ CURSE COMES HOME TO WALL STREET,” her review of “Obama’s Challenge” and the Ethical Markets TV Series, which includes 13 shows about “Redefining Success,” “Global Corporate Citizenship,” “Women-Owned Businesses” and “Health and Wellness,” to name a few.
