Why I think Dan Pallotta is wrong about charity and social business
In his widely viewed talk Dan makes the case for attracting talent to charity and assert that only charity will address the needs of those business won't reach. The same argument has been made for social business in highlighting where capitalism fails to trick down to a minority.
Recently Peter Buffet wrote of a Charitable Industrial Complex. What he says resonates with my experience of tackling poverty in Ukraine where young people sell themselves on the streets and 60% of those afflicted with HIV/ AIDS have no access to treatment in spite of massive aid donations.
