Philanthrocapitalism Summary

Philanthrocapitalism: How the Rich Can Save the World and Why We Should Let Them by Matthew Bishop

For philanthropists of the past, charity was often a matter of simply giving money away. For 'philanthrocapitalists' - the new generation of billionaires who are reshaping the way they give - it's like business. Largely trained in the corporate world, these 'social investors' are using big-business-style strategies and expecting results and accountability to match. In Philanthrocapitalism, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green examine this new movement and its implications. Proceeding from interviews with some of the most powerful people on the planet - including Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Angelina Jolie, and Bono, among others - they show how a web of wealthy, motivated donors has set out to change the world. Praise for Philanthrocapitalism: 'Important. Well-written. Timely...A superb portrait of a vital new force shaping the world today, Philanthrocapitalism deserves to be widely read.' Jim Collins, author of Good to Great 'Thoroughly researched and enjoyable' Financial Times 'Fascinating' The Times 'Perceptive and well written' The Spectator

Philanthrocapitalism Reviews

"Important. Well-written. Timely. Here in this wonderful book, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green shine a light on sparkling examples of effective philanthropy, and how some of the most accomplished people are trying to solve the world's most intractable problems. A superb portrait of a vital new force shaping the world today, Philanthrocapitalism deserves to be widely read." Jim Collins, author of Good to Great "A terrific book about how private money can help solve even the most difficult public problems. Philanthrocapitalism is the definitive guide to a new generation of philanthropists who understand innovation and risk-taking, and who will play a crucial part in solving the biggest problems facing the world." Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City "Everything you need to know about the revolution underway in the world of philanthropy-its potential as well as its challenges. An indispensable book for anyone who cares about helping the world's four billion poor get a chance to live their dreams." Hernando de Soto, author of The Mystery of Capital "This is an excellent insight into why the new age of philanthropy has dawned... a thoughtful investigation of an interesting area." Director Magazine, January 2009 "Thoroughly researched and enjoyable." Financial Times
