IT’S OUR MONEY with Ellen Brown

Philanthropy — Repression or

 
The trillion-dollar philanthropy industry has been accused of continuing a racist, colonialist system of economic and cultural suppression. That notion is in dramatic contrast to a broadly favorable appreciation for the largess of wealthy donors who contribute significant sums to thousands of public interest organizations and causes. What lies underneath that patina of generosity? Our guest Edgar Villanueva writes in his latest book “Decolonizing Wealth” that philanthropy is a vestige of a privileged society disassociated and disengaged from the financial realities that created the vast wealth that fosters it. On the flipside, according to Edward Quevedo and Mark Watson, our guests in a second segment, philanthropy can be a source of restitution and regeneration,. A new alliance for sharing the wealth is in the making.
