Two Views on Nonprofits From TED: Economic Efficiency vs. Social Equity (or a little of both maybe)?
Happy Friday. Spring break can't get here soon enough! Its amazing, really, the content you can find on the internet (some good, some very bad), especially in online fora like TED Talks, that have built brand loyalty based on the perceived levels of intelligence of its speakers. The two speakers in the the TED Talks posted above come from two entirely different theoretical worlds. The first speaker focuses on "economic efficiency" as the measure of the Independent Sector's value to society. The other focuses on "social justice" as the measure of the Independent Sector's value to society. The talks remind me that the content of our tax and non-tax laws relating to nonprofit organizations is very largely determined by our theoretical starting points.
