Zoltan J Acs, Why Philanthropy Matters: how the wealthy give, and what it means for our economic well-being. This book provides a different perspective on the development of capitalism by highlighting philanthropy’s critical links to economic progress, heath and future from a USA perspective. Acs argues that philanthropy achieves three critical outcomes: He believes philanthropy complements government in creating public goods and by focussing on education, science and medicine and philanthropy has had a positive effect on economic growth and productivity. Acs argues that philanthropy has given an edge to capitalism by promoting vital forces necessary for technological innovation, economic equality and economic security.

Some charities achieve much more than others, and some donors are more helpful than others - some `help' actually hinders charities. Wouldn't you rather that your donations achieved a lot rather than a little? This book shows how to do that, explaining what you need to know and what you need to do. Packed with information, insights and examples - plus eclectic tales from Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein, Private Eye and Harvard Business Review - it's invaluable whether you're giving money, time or anything else, and whether you're a school-child, a company or a billionaire.
