Philanthropy and the State: Who is funding What and Why?

Philanthropy and the State: Who is funding What and Why?


Join us with Mariana Mazzucato & Anand Giridharadas (author of “Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World” one of our favorite books on philanthrocapitalism @ANTI)  for a great conversation on May 12, 2021 05:30 PM London time. Details below.


The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed structural defects in how markets promote welfare and how governments build resilient economies. Philanthropic capital often tries to help fill some of the gaps, re-establishing scrutiny whether the current role of philanthropy in society itself points to a structural defect. This conversation explores when philanthropy helps, when it hurts, and what is required to reshape the role of philanthropy in healthy societies.


When does philanthropic capital entrench inequalities and build value extractive practices? When can philanthropic capital enable visionary activities? How can rethinking the ownership and application of philanthropic capital and motivations help reward and foster collective value creation?


Join IIPP Director, and author of recently the published ‘Mission Economy: A moonshot guide to changing capitalism’, Mariana Mazzucato, in conversation with Anand Giridharadas, author of ‘Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World’ – reflecting on how their recent books touch on this subject.


This talk is funded by the Omidyar Network as part of the ‘Who owns what and why?’ IIPP event series.
