Could $100 million end homelessness?

  1. 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.

    Wow.

    Well…I just hope it doesn’t keep McArthur from funding my favorite PBS shows.
