When Philanthropy Is Not Giving

On April 16, 2017 NPR’s Jessica Smith reported “Philanthropy In America Is Becoming ‘Ideological Arms Race,’ Author Says” about David Callahan’s book “The Givers: Wealth, Power and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age”

“But Callahan says right wing donors have been more effective when it comes to shaping economic and fiscal policy, bankrolling big think tanks in Washington that advocate for cutting the size of government. Those include The Heritage Foundation, which now plays a big role in the Trump administration.” As a result, poor people are disenfranchised.
