Pioneers Post TV has created a so-called Quick Animated History of Social Investment that aims to provide a speedy introduction or summary of the burgeoning part of the sector. The short clip discusses the progression of the notion of a taking a risk for social return starting with Prometheus and ending of course, at its modern manifestation with social investment bonds and banks.

While many of the specific examples are relevant to the UK only, the quick video outlines such opportunities for the market as the global financial crisis (crisis, of course, often triggers innovation, as the video states), which they assert has caused many to call to question the nature of what investment means and what it can mean for society.
