In separate research papers, three Wharton professors -- Deborah Small, Franklin Allen and Susan Wachter -- look at whether "doing good" means doing well in different contexts: When it comes to corporate image, are "nice" firms perceived as less likely to succeed? How can banks serve rural populations and remain profitable? And can something as simple as planting a tree in an urban setting bump up real estate prices?

Many government agencies and nonprofits use SMS (text messaging) to share information with their constituents, and some even provide two-way services, which allow users to send information back to the program and interact with service providers in real time.
