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。

这是一个一般性的自助挑战,也是我本人的新企业——健康项目协调委员会(Health Initiative Coordinating Council,HICCup)所面临的的挑战。HICCup为五个竞争HICCup健康(而非医疗)最大进步奖的社区提供咨询。该奖项将根据五方面得分给出。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
