  • It would be tactless in a foreword to propose answers to the puzzle of bilateral investment treaties (BITs) and double taxation treaties (DTTs).

We also investigate how our results are affected by the presence of SRI funds that perform little social screening. When we restrict the sample of SRI funds to include only those funds that perform intensive social screening, we obtain results similar to those obtained for the whole sample of SRI funds.
