The Role and Limitations of Philianthropy

by Michael Edwards

Nov 1, 2011

In this paper Edwards argues on the role and limitations of philanthropy, especially the domination of the ultra rich in the philanthropic field, which he argues displaces attention from strategies that remain vitally important for wellbeing, and which weakens the synergies that exist between grants and investments in philanthropy, political and economic risk-taking, and social change and social goods.
