What made the experience of listening to Globalization and Its Discontents the most enjoyable?

Excellent and fascinating content thanks to the quite unique insight offered to us by Joseph Stiglets.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I believe that I now have a greater insight and understanding of ills the "emerging economies" reproach to the "rich nations" and why the way forward rapidly needs change.

If you could sum up Philanthrocapitalism in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, thorough and timely review of Philanthropy in our world today, and it's historic and contemporary importance to our societies.

Very little relevance to the title.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

As there little relevance in the book to the title, it is quite dissapointing in terms of content as it hovers broadly over a wide scope of subjects ranging from the historic development of the US economy to the evolution and current needs of the education system... with occasional links back to Philanthropy.

Would you recommend Why Philanthropy Matters to your friends? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book as a relevant piece of litterature concerning contemporary Philanthropy.
