Philanthropy and the Economic Crisis

This week and next I am a guest blogger at The Center for Effective Philanthropy.

My posts address philanthropy and the economic crisis, and include some philanthropic advice for Lloyd Blankfein (parts I and II), a giving guide for the rest of us, and thoughts on foundation investment strategy. The last entry raises questions about the very purpose of charity, and the place of private philanthropy in the social contract. They run January 26th through February 5th, and begin here.
