9788493619497: Filantrocapitalismo /Philanthrocapitalism (Spanish Edition)

Puede el capitalismo salvar el mundo? Dos expertos en economia presentan en esta obra un apasionante analisis de la explosion del capitalismo filantropico y sus implicaciones. Hasta ahora, la caridad se basaba en donaciones privadas y ayuda no gubernamental. El filantrocapitalismo, en cambio, busca aplicar estrategias empresariales a la creacion de recursos para los mas necesitados. Si empresarios de exito como Bill Gates o Warren Buffett se han valido de las nuevas tecnologias y la globalizacion para amasar inmensas fortunas, por que no aplicar las mismas tecnicas al cambio social? Acostumbrados a pensar a lo grande, los filantroempresarios pretenden aportar soluciones creativas a los grandes problemas: el sistema publico educativo, el cambio climatico, la guerra o el desarrollo economico de los paises pobres. Iniciativas como Google.org, Clinton Global Iniciative o Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, entre otras, son examinadas por los autores en una obra polemica, de lectura indispensable ante un movimiento que se multiplica. / In Philanthrocapitalism, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green examine this new movement and its implications.
