When I came into ethical investing I knew people would have different ethics. But if there was one company I thought thought we could agree on, it was Cochlear Limited (ASX: COH), a company builds hearing aids as well as generating good profits for shareholders.
But since The Intelligent Investor argues Cochlear might be unethical, I thought I'd post a video of a kid getting hearing from a hearing aid. I wonder if people at Cochlear sit around thinking, "let's build less hearing aids, and put the price up." Somehow, I doubt it, but if you work at Cochlear, please let me know!
