5.0 étoiles sur 5 The new generation of philanthropists 10 novembre 2008
Par James Fruchterman - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This excellent book is the first in-depth account of the new generation of philanthropists who will write the next few chapters of philanthropy. Most of the major new players that are currently coming on stage are covered, with a journalistic ethic of balancing the boosters' claims with the points of the critics. But, the book *is* discussing the voluntary parting of cash from billionaires, so it might be understandable that much of the material is somewhat sympathetic. Enough of the history of philanthropy is woven in to provide the background of past "philanthrocapitalists" like Carnegie and Rockefeller, and demonstrate that financial booms often are followed by a blossoming of giving. Of course, the method of social entrepreneurship is prominently featured.

The book concludes with a tongue-in-cheek imagining of a gathering of the senior philanthrocapitalists in 2025 on Richard Branson's mansion in space: the Gates, Jeff Skoll, Oprah Winfrey, Mo Ibrahim, Angelina Jolie and the new U.S. president, Larry Page.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Recent history of philanthropy by super rich 2 juillet 2012
Par Gderf - Publié sur
Format: Broché
B&G coin a malapropism with 'Philanthrocapitalism'. It's a very good history of high finance philanthropy, but there's no logic in projecting the effects on capitalism. B&G don't seem to recognize that politics has long ago trumped economics. The impossibility of 'philanthropolitics' precludes anything akin to 'philanthrocapitalism' becoming effective. As the authors point out, governmental economics dwarfs the amounts available to even these richest of financiers.

There are discussions of the efforts of efforts of Gates, Buffet, Turner, Andrew Carnegie and many others past and present. With even handed discussion of possible ulterior motives,
unintended consequences, and ethics of investment by not for profit foundations. Topics include some morphing of non profit foundations to for-profit honoring of founder's wishes
and the economics of awarding prizes. Especially interesting are the X prizes for science and mathematics.

It's a very edifying history and analysis of high finance philanthropy. The material is very original, not easily duplicated elsewhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clearing the Windshield about Social Investing 5 janvier 2009
Par Don Tapscott - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm generally disappointed by business, and for that matter non-fiction books. It's rare to get a fresh idea, let alone one that is argued well. I've followed Mathew Bishop's work over the years was was excited to learn he had a new book. But I confess to some skepticism when I saw he had co-authored a book with a subtitle "How the Rich Can Save the World." When I look at the problems facing the world it seems to me that the rich, more than any other group have messed it up. And what a mess we have.

However, Philanthrocapitalism is a great book, and I can't think of any category of educated person who should not read it. For starters there is a lot of mud on the windshield when it comes to social investing, venture philanthrophy, philanthropreneurship, social innovation, social entrepreneurship and the like. The book provides a vivid and reach exposure to how wealth is increasingly being applied to improve the state of the world. I learned about the ecosystems of social investing, and was stunned to learn what's actually happening in this area.

For some time there has been the expression among the Corporate Social Responsibility community "You do well by doing good." I don't think this has been true. Many companies have done well by being awful - by having terrible labor practices, bad products bolstered by good advertising, externalizing costs (such as industrial emissions) on society and the like. However increasingly in the age of transparency everyone is being held to higher standards. And a new generation of people with wealth are beginning to understand that you can't succeed in a world that is failing.
And what a great read. Every single chapter was packed with interesting stories about the players who are making this happen.

I expect the book will be widely read, and so it should. But my greatest hope is that people with wealth will read it and follow the lead of their most progressive peers. How ironic, should the rich actually end up being key to making this smaller world our children inherit a better and more sustainable one?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very well rounded survey 5 juillet 2011
Par artfulJohn - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I have just completed the book and think it excellent. Don't be fooled by its title. It offers a very well rounded survey both of contemporary philanthropy and insights into the history of philanthropy. The authors describe five "golden ages" of philanthropy. of which the fifth is now. Its cast of characters are primarily British, American and contemporary Indian billionaires.

A central thesis is that philanthrocapitalists have the potential to be "hyperagents" able to apply their acumen to "tipping points and bottle necks" in a pluralistic system where governments, corporations and NGOs combine to meet the world's biggest challenges.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Investing in Human Kind 24 décembre 2008
Par H. Sirkin - Publié sur
Format: Relié
In this time of recession and government spending cuts, charitable organizations and medical, scientific and social research are under severe pressure to curtail their efforts. But thanks to the return-oriented support of the ultrawealthy, these programs can in many cases continue their critical work. Bishop and Green trace the history of philanthrocapitalism and focus on its implications for modern society. With their emphasis on key players like the Rockefeller Foundation, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates ("Billanthropy"), Bishop and Green provide a clear perspective on how the ultrarich are playing an increasingly important role in making investments--rather than just donations--to solve problems that will transform the lives of humankind. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the future of philanthropy.
