Creating Systems of Justice: Philanthropy at the Highest Level

Front Cover
Lulu.com, Nov 1, 2005 - Business & Economics - 376 pages
This book is a must-read for all concerned citizens of the planet who can contribute something --- be it time, talent, nonfinancial resources, financial resources ---- to lighten the burdens of this time and age. Starting with the Philippine situation and taking a transdisciplinary approach, this book explores the nuances of a strategic link-up between the limited few with wherewithal and the many ordinary people worldwide with limited wherewithal but with unutilized potential. Using one comprehensive framework involving positive composite institutions, this book is a contribution to the work of creating systems of justice, people empowerment, poverty alleviation, grassroots development, saving hijacked democracies, boosting general economic demand, and promoting a more positive world order, while bringing philanthropy to a more efficient, more effective, and more potent level.
