Building an Impact Economy: The Role of Philanthropy

This is a must-watch for anyone interested in how philanthropy works, especially the current thinking and structures from the US perspective.

From a Praxorium perspective, I was particularly intrigued by:

  • Graham MacMillan’s reference to ‘the commons’
  • First questioner Amy’s query about empowering community decision-making as well as providing capital, and the first answer to that question

The term ‘catalytic capital’ (which are either grants seeking no financial return at all, or is at least patient and risk tolerant) is an interesting one that I would like to understand better and discuss with anyone who is interested to do so.
