You are right. Yet the other kind of wealthy investor is a problem, too. 
Suppose an investor chooses to buy into so-called socially beneficial 
lines of business, or at least to avoid a list of sectors like military, 
tobacco, GMO seeds, and cut-and-slash buyout funds. He wants to keep his 
soul pure, but he does not make much of a difference.

As for good works, Andrew Carnegie built a bunch of public libraries. So 
far as I know (namely, nothing), this was in itself a positive thing. 
Bill Gates gives a bunch of money to education, that is, to initiatives 
that destroy education. Difference of personality, or sign of a 
historical change?
