I feel many of the arguments Daniel conveys are in line with a very inspiring philanthropist who I’m sure has made some money too – Dan Pallotta… the man behind: http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_pallotta_th e_way_we_think_about_charity_is_dead_wro ng

Anyone who proposes to do good for society – whether for their ego or for money etc. – should be encouraged.

I have founded an organisation that encourages volunteering: www.Power-of-You.org. People will volunteer for all sorts of reasons and even if it is in order to boost their CV, as long as people in Africa are benefitting from their time then I feel it is a win win situation.

My ‘competition’ so to speak are other organisations who often charge grossly inflated prices for people to volunteer. If people are willing to pay this money and they help the underprivileged, it is again a win win situation. The agency prospers, the volunteer settles their moral compass and boosts their CV and most importantly, there is hopefully some positive social impact from there volunteering.

I propose that all forms of Philanthropy are to society’s profit… if companies or individuals can prosper from it then good on them. There are many easier forms of making money without giving back to society.

And yes… using laughing stock is a little too much.

Best,

Tom
Founder of www.Power-of-You.org

That’s fine.

If you truly care about for-profit companies’ ability to create social benefits, then perhaps you should try to distill what’s useful in our paper, “The Single Bottom Line,” rather than caricaturing it.

For example, the paper clearly acknowledges that it’s impractical for any executive to have an infinite time horizon. The very next line is the following:

“To be sure, most companies have limited time and resources for making decisions, so they cannot handicap every potential risk and opportunity that may arise between now and the end of time.”

The paper also recognizes that some companies may wish to engage in philanthropy without any view to how it might contribute to their own bottom lines. These are not profit-maximizing companies, so they should have (at least tacit) shareholder approval for deciding to pursue multiple objectives at the expense of profits.

We think that using the single bottom line with a long (not infinite) time horizon will actually encourage profit-maximizing companies to invest in more social initiatives, since they’ll see how those initiatives can help their profitability in the long term.

Best regards,
Daniel Altman
