The MacArthur Foundation announced it would award $100 million for a solution that ends a global social problem.
So Jac, who sent the link, wondered: Could we end homelessness for that amount of money? Why the hell not? Just look at what Connecticut has done.
Philanthrocapitalists are getting their own Olympics with just one giant Gold Medal awarded to any organization that can identify a problem, think up a solution, (no proof of actual utility required), and sell it to deep thinkers with deep pockets.
Well…I just hope it doesn’t keep McArthur from funding my favorite PBS shows.
