PROGRAM AND PANEL
Welcome by Hudson Institute’s WILLIAM SCHAMBRA
Philanthropy has been part of the implicit American social contract that continuously nurtures and revitalizes economic prosperity. American philanthropists—particularly those who have made their own fortunes—create foundations that, in turn, contribute to greater and more widespread economic prosperity. Analyzing philanthropy sheds light on our current understanding of how economic development has occurred, as well as the roots of American economic dominance. On Tuesday, October 16, ZOLTAN ACS, of George Mason University, discussed his thought-provoking paper, “The Entrepreneurship/Philanthropy Nexus.” As Acs claims, what differentiates American capitalism from all other forms of industrial capitalism is a focus on both the creation of wealth (entrepreneurship) and the distribution of wealth through philanthropy. CAROL ADELMAN, of Hudson Institute, introduced the topic and commented on Acs’ paper and presentation.
