'Part of the solution, not part of the problem'

Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet
Jeffrey Sachs

Collaborative CSR

The phrase ‘business philanthropy’ may sound oxymoronic. A company is not a charity, nor is it a development agency, concedes Jeffrey Sachs in Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet. No private company can realistically be required to ensure a community’s access to roads, power, schools, clinics, and such basic needs; yet, business philanthropy can work best as part of a holistic effort, where many partners come together, argues Sachs.
