Generosity Unbound: How American Philanthropy Can Strengthen the Economy and Expand the Middle Class

In her book, Generosity Unbound: How American Philanthropy Can Strengthen the Economy and Expand the Middle Class, author and professor Claire Gaudiani argues that philanthropy has played a significant role in the American economic engine ever since our nation's founding. She also argues that little regulation on foundations and philanthropic giving is the best environment that encourages philanthropic investment ... and that philanthropy is key to the future of American democracy.

Here's a seven-minute clip from the BookTV program in which Gaudiani introduces the premise of her book.
