The Philanthropy Paradox

This week’s speaker will be our faithful scribe, Wayne Gersen, who will offer a talk based on an Osher course he will be offering titled "The Philanthropy Paradox". This course draws on Anand Giridharadas’ book Winners Take All, which describes how billionaire philanthropists are changing the way the economy functions and how we are governed. He will use Bill Gates’ philanthropy for polio and public education as an example of the paradoxes that emerge when billionaires make decisions on how their money will be used.
