For philanthropists of the past, charity was often a matter of simply giving money away. For 'philanthrocapitalists' - the new generation of billionaires who are reshaping the way they give - it's like business. Largely trained in the corporate world, these 'social investors' are using big-business-style strategies and expecting results and accountability to match. In Philanthrocapitalism, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green examine this new movement and its implications. Proceeding from interviews with some of the most powerful people on the planet - including Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Angelina Jolie, and Bo, among others - they show how a web of wealthy, motivated dors has set out to change the world. This paperback edition includes a new foreword by Bill Clinton. Praise for Philanthrocapitalism: 'Important. Well-written. Timely...A superb portrait of a vital new force shaping the world today, Philanthrocapitalism deserves to be widely read.' Jim Collins, author of Good to Great 'Thoroughly researched and enjoyable' Financial Times 'Fascinating' The Times 'Perceptive and well written' The Spectator
