 Peter Buffett, son of billionaire investor Warren on the conflict between capitalism and humanism. "THE CONFLICT BETWEEN CAPITALISM AND HUMANISM... YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH"

 

 New York Times, July 26, 2013 - by Peter Buffet

-▶ THE CHARITABLE-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX - PETER BUFFET

 As more lives are destroyed by the system that creates vast amounts of wealth for the few, the more heroic it sounds to “give back.”

Peter Buffett, son of billionaire invester Warren, argues that philanthropy needs to do a better job of listening. He says that the structure of philanthropy is such that nothing seems to get better, but rather locks existing problems into place.

"Poverty, hunger, the environment, education, health - all those things are symptoms of a larger problem of nobody really wanting to get in there and blow some things up," Buffett says... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/27/opinion/the-charitable-industrial-complex.html?_r=1&

The easiest option in business is to take the path of least resistance, which in our current culture is to maximise profits and remain blinkered to the consequences of our actions. It therefore takes determination and self-awareness to be able to create an enterprise that integrates doing good with doing well, or – on a deeper level – merging heart and mind. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/young-social-entrepreneurs-changing-the-world

When all is said and done about the pros and cons of philanthropy today, we are rely on it more and more. As our government continues to replace democracy with Casino Capitalism, it is leaving the 99% behind in this high stakes poker game being played by the 1%. This has also increased the crevase between wealth and the poverty by creating a new socio-economic class, The Middle Class Poor.

UN: Privatizing food and agricultural aid is dangerous. Obama's Africa Plan Is Wrong

December 11, 2012 Humanosphere
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, examines the Obama Administration’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a project aimed at boosting food production in the developing world. De Schutter notes that one example of the new initiative’s approach is to have Cargill launch a large-scale project on 40,000 acres of farmland in Mozambique — which may increase crop yields but also potentially displace many poor smallholder farmers.

“The very factors that make Africa a target for agricultural development aid also make it a promising land market for multinational investors. But opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions. Problems can arise when private companies take a central role in aid programmes.”

Opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions.  "Investment" implies a financial return and often control.  "Philanthropy" and "Aid" should not be attached to profits but rather to empower and uplift populations into self independence in line with their regional ecosystems, cultural food and needs without coercion or hidden agendas by those acting as a trojan horse for big foreign business and corporate interests e.g. The Gates Foundation
