Matthew Bishop, the author of Philanthrocapitalism is making the rounds at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos this week. Matthew is the chair of the WEF Council on Philanthropy & Social Investing of which I am a member. There’s no doubt that the concept of Philanthrocapitalism is under trememdous pressure given the state of financial markets, but there seems to still be some interest. Evidence: The panel that gathered to discuss Bishop’s book at the conference was made up of Tony Blair, Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Chinese actor Jet Li and Muhammad Yunus. What?! That’s got to be one of the most amazing panel line ups ever put together to discuss any topic.
