The Givers: Wealth, Power, and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age.
The Givers by David Callahan of InsidePhilanthropy offers an inside look at the hidden world of elite philanthropists— and how they’re quietly wielding ever more power to shape American life in ways both good and bad. Whether you cheer or fear these wealthy power players, their rise presents tough dilemmas for democracy. The Givers explores the proper role of private wealth in public life and, at every turn, comes back to an urgent question: Who’s really in charge of America these days?
Moderated by Erica Kohl-Arenas, Assistant Professor, Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy.
