Capitalism is good for charity

Dan Pallotta, the originator of the bike-a-thons for raising funds for AIDS-related issues discusses how capitalism can be put to work for charity and how government is stopping it. In his groundbreaking new book, Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential , Pallotta makes the case that the nonprofit sector needs to be deregulated so that it can directly harness the energy of capitalism and the profit motive in pursuit of philanthropy. The book can be ordered from Laissez Faire Books, 1 866-686-7210.
