Who is Changing Philanthropy?
What organisation's models can end the White Man's Burden of charity? What is WMB: WMB1 charity dollar's get one-time spending never investing; WMB2 global charity controls from above never transfers knowhow; WMB3 charity ticks performance in boxes not flows that community impact accountancy needs to develop around; WMB4 charity has seldom destabilised a corrupt regime relying on expediency of working within a broken system than stepping back and seeing how whole change is needed if ever more vicious spirals onto the poorest people are not to be compounded by inconvenient truth; WMB5 Charity as it has evolved in globalisation's last 30 years has had terrifying influence on mass media- with commercial media it has paid exorbitant sums to ad messages that should have been free speech if they truly were life-saving, with public media it has censored debates that could have identified Charity's systemic follies and burdens -its accidental vicious systemisation and cumulative impacts have put "democratic" governments on the defensive where we needed openness and diverse curiosity of leadesrhip, and made the interface between global charity and national governments one of the root causes of loss of sustainability of our species
Does economics (or any of the metrics or law-making professions) have any maps at deep context and conflict resolution levels needed for changing philanthropy

peter and friends: for 10 years anything that has the SRI (eg ) label on it starts as a huge negative for me just as with CSR- equally that's why they need to be clients of CIA (community impact accountancy)

are you aware of the sad case of marjorie kelly- for 15 years she founded the newsletter ethical business as well as authoring the divine right of capital; then enron came along and she bravely wrote an editorial "economic democracy" saying her first 15 years was mistaken - csr was fluff -image made by the highest advertiser; unable to change global's biggest failing systems

then ethical business which had accidentally become a ramp for old csr went almost bust and she had to sell out and ethical business continues with csr and sri as usual - at least that's how I believe the case to be- one moment I was having lovely e-conversations with marjorie saying do come over to minnesota - we can play my (ie her) favourite game of trying to get a large mcdonalds cup to hoopla the statue of mary tyler moore; the next moment she wasnt on the system changing front at all

what's your latest gos on whether the capitalism book writer at NY demos is up for any real change ...

perhaps only in nordica that human and social and intellectual capital tools nearly go the other side of 90-day monetisation accounting ; but the sveibys and edvinnson's of the world ended up with mathematical models that ultimately justified themselves in tangible accountings additive bottom line just as elkington's triple bottom line thinking - leaving a few brave finnish and norwegain companies to account differently as I expect Raimo could bookmark us to but most of the world misled into another load of junk analysis and money grabbing professions sponsoring more junk academics. Boy did I have a row with them the one time I gave a talk at Harvard in 1999.

Peter- I doubt that you will replace all SRI channels as one man with one toolkit - whence collaboration new york needs to be communally built until we have enough different debates going on to overturn the monpoly of conventional wisdom professions
