上规模的慈善机构

米德兰,德克萨斯州—自从开办了我本人的非营利组织以来,我对其他非营利组织的看法也有了改观。非营利组织的数量比我想象的要多得多。作为天使投资人,我通常并不参与其中。如今,我担心它们的效率实在太低。

在小镇之间穿行时,我所见到的许多企业——应该说是大部分——都属于大型连锁,签订了大量采购合同、有标准化的培训流程、始终如一的品质,以及(我认为具有)盈利能力。相反,非营利组织大多规模较小,通常由满怀激情但专业和管理技能欠缺的人运作。它们从奉献而不是效率中获益——这值得尊敬,但不容易规模化。

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships.
