    1. So, this one and Just Another Emperor The Myths and Realities of Philanthrocapitalism are basically the same book, except this one is a bit longer The central concern here is something I ve been concerned about for a very long time That is, the idea of philanthropy or what Edwards refers to as philanthrocapitalism You might think that it would be possible to dislike capitalism, but still struggle to really find anything wrong with philanthropy I mean, if obscenely wealthy people let s call them [...]

    2.

    3. The author brings up some excellent and obvious points about trying to apply buisness or market metrics to difficult social problems While he agrees there are certain segments of nonprofit work that could benefit from philanthrocapitalism, he mostly points out that social change and social justice has only happened through history through collective action by individual concerned citizens.
