"Oprah Closes Charity and Opens Store"

"Oprah Closes Charity and Opens Store"

That headline, from, sums up so much about this moment. As part of my New America Foundation Fellowship I'm writing a book about the changing nature of our social sector. Technology, which I've published about at length, is one of two key changes.

The second of two key forces, as I discussed in this Stanford-hosted panel with Rob Reich, Diana Aviv and Steve Gunderson (Video) comes from market-type enterprises and finance.

Now I'll just have to look into celebrity philanthropy ("celebanthropy") again, and that headline would cover it all.
