No Such Thing as a Free Gift

Free download No Such Thing as a Free Gift Free read È No Such Thing as a Free Gift ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Philanthro capitalism How charity became big businessThe charitable sector is one of the fastest growing industries in the global economy Nearly half of the than 85000 private foundations in the United States have come into being since the year 2000 Just under 5000 were established in 2011 alone This deluge of philanthropy has helped create a world where billionaires wield power over education policy global agriculture. Talk about a well timed release Linsey McGoey s No Such Thing as a Free Gift The Gates Foundation and the Price of Philanthropy came out just weeks before Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan announced the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and set off an Internet wide firestorm about philanthropy and its relationship with ineuality and democracyThis was almost the book I had been waiting for But it only goes half way pointing out what s wrong in billionaire philanthropy without any substantive analysis of how to make things right or at least slightly better It builds on the work of other thoughtful critics including Rob Reich Mark Dowie Gara LaMarche and Joanne Barkan and applies it to the work of the Gates Foundation disclosure my former employer But it doesn t offer any new arguments or solutions And as Andy Beckett points out in his review it doesn t seem like McGoey spoke to many Gates Foundation employees to better understand how the structure and management of the foundation contribute to its shortcomingsMcGoey depicts those of us who work at foundations as naive idealistic TED Heads that jet around in business class from one to the next faddish conference without ever understanding the roots or realities of the problems we purport to address Sure you can find those types at many foundations and sadly their ilk is on the rise as foundations increasingly recruit MBA generalists on the assumption that they are efficient and outcome focused But if she had spoken with foundation employees McGoey would have discovered that many of philanthropy s toughest critics are those of us that work on the inside even at the Gates Foundation Each time we go through an existential crisis about our work we ask ourselves a uestion that McGoey mostly avoids given the current political realities if not this then whatThe strongest section of the book looks at the implications of the Gates Foundation s choice to work with rather than against Big Pharma to make progress against diseases that affect the poorest That decision is rooted in Bill Gates belief that philanthropy can help attract the smartest minds to the most important problems It s a noble goal that necessitates some ugly trade offs Supporters of the foundation s partnerships with pharmaceutical companies argue that as a result poor people get access to new medicines faster and cheaper while pharmaceutical companies gain access to new markets Critics like McGoey point out that Big Pharma is making record profits that it uses to lobby governments for strict patent protections against generic euivalents government sanctioned monopolies that deny life saving medicine to poor people Hepatitis C for example affects 150 million people worldwide and kills 700000 people each year There is a treatment but it will cost you 1000 per daily pill 84000 for the full treatment The state of Illinois has paid tens of millions for the drug and was forced to restrict Medicaid patients from treatment Generic versions of the drug in developing countries where 73% of all people with hepatitis C live could be as low as 100 for the full treatment leading to healthier citizens and productive economiesI fully agree with McGoey that patent protections shouldn t keep people from accessing medicines that could save their lives It was one of the areas I was most interested in when I worked at Open Society Foundations yes an evil private foundation But even as I nodded in agreement I was frustrated that McGoey didn t substantively address the tradeoffs of working with versus against Big Pharma and that she didn t dig into the details of Gates Foundation s Global Access policy The foundation s approach to intellectual property is much nuanced than just patent protection at all costsShe also joins the chorus of voices demanding that the foundation s trust divest from oil companies without recognizing research that shows that divestment campaigns rarely work All that activist effort to get private foundations to divest from oil companies is a distraction from what would really make a difference higher taxes on carbon extraction and consumption and cheaper renewable energyTo the degree that McGoey offers a solution it s that wealthy people should pay taxes and governments should provide uality public services and a basic safety net I agree and both Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are on record for supporting higher taxes Buffet has been especially vocal But McGoey s faith in governments to be the sole financier of public goods scientific research and the arts makes me think she s never lived in a developing country It s a model that works well at the University of Essex where she works but just ask researchers activists and artists in Mexico what they have to go through to get government supportFinally when I ponder the book s central premise that private foundations amount to unaccountable institutionalized plutocracy and this is something I think about freuently I ultimately come to the same conclusion Private foundations aren t the problem and getting rid of them isn t the solution As Larry Kramer disclosure president of the Hewlett Foundation where I work argues the problem is large aggregations of wealth Allocating those large aggregations of wealth to private foundations compared to says campaign finance lobbying or luxury yachts is the least of our worriesI d recommend this book to anyone who works in philanthropy and to anyone interested in the relationship between wealth idealism and democracy It reveals the many contradictions rampant in my field McGoey is a deep subtle thinker who rewards her readers with great passages from 19th century literature sociological theory and political philosophy It s an especially important read for all those attracted to the hype of social entrepreneurship and the next TED conference For those of us who have been pondering philanthropy s shortcomings for some time however this is not the book to help us advance our thinking on how to improve philanthropy and its relationship with democracy

Free download No Such Thing as a Free Gift Free read È No Such Thing as a Free Gift ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ll and Melinda Gates Foundation As large charitable organizations replace governments as the providers of social welfare their largesse becomes suspect The businesses fronting the money often create the very economic instability and ineuality the foundations are purported to solve We are entering an age when the ideals of social justice are dependent on the strained rectitude and uestionable generosity of the mega rich. Probably the best book I have read all year I thought I knew a lot about philanthropy after working in and studying the aid industry for the past decade or This book tackles large philanthropy specifically Gates but she also mentions Rockefeller Koch Brothers Ted etc I think this is a must read for anyone working in development in their own country or abroad and should be on related course syllabuses Main message Gates has done a lot of good but can be ruthless in their business tactics even in the realm of philanthropy And philanthropy is an important way to pursue vested business interests This book really speaks to the larger trends in development today with social entrepreneurship private sector led development advancing their interests which was taboo in the past but now considered best practice I am left wondering how McGoey collected all these stories from the inside Really well done
