    Reimagining Philanthropy in the Global South: Building Communities for More Impact

    Philanthropy is all too often misunderstood, mis-represented and subject to broad generalisations that obfuscate its potential, particularly in relation to the Global South. As Professor Beth Breeze outlines in her book, In Defence of Philanthropy, “Philanthropy is complex, messy and imperfect because it is an all-too-human response to enduring and intractable problems.” And yet, private capital […]

    We should “rethink corruption”

    Have we reached a plateau in our understanding of corruption? I believe so. It’s time to push the boundaries of this discourse, moving what is currently at the periphery of the debate to the forefront of our discussions. In my new book, I urge readers to challenge the prevailing notions of corruption that have dominated […]

    Dog Economics: Perspectives on Our Canine Relationships

    We share the fondness many people have for dogs. In the United States, approximately half of households express their fondness by opening their doors, and most often their hearts, to dogs. Indeed, a majority of these households views dogs as family members. Dogs are thus not only commodities traded in markets but also cherished household […]

    The Macroeconomics of Decarbonisation

    Scientific evidence is clear: human activities have released enough greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere to have already altered the climate, with already strong effects on ecosystems, societies and economies. On current emissions paths, climate change is set to become dramatically worse. To limit global warming, and hence avoid the worst-case scenarios predicted by climate […]

    Legacy: How to Build the Sustainable Economy

    Almost everyone agrees we are on an unsustainable path. Disputes are about just how unsustainable that path is. What few people grasp is the obvious implication: what is unsustainable will not be sustained. We can either get ourselves onto the sustainable path now, or we can be forced back to it as the impacts on […]

    How To Think About Climate Change

    Open-minded citizens who are concerned about the potential impact of global warming on their lives, and on those of their children, are bombarded  with wildly discordant information and recommendations. Perhaps few still doubt whether global temperatures are indeed increasing, but, beyond this minimal level of agreement, there remain conflicting, and often strident, views about virtually […]

    At the frontlines of crises: How responders resolve dilemmas in the face of chaos

    Imagine a crash site. Emergency services rush to the scene of the incident and begin to help. Firefighters, paramedics and police officers are bound to face a number of dilemmas as they carry out their activities. They have operational procedures in place for a range of emergencies, but every situation is unique, so do they […]

    How institutions matter in Mozambique

    Launched in 2015 and completed in 2022, the Institutional Diagnostic Project aimed at identifying institutional factors that affect development, reforms that may help address existing institutional constraints, and factors that can preclude or enable these reforms. Using the motto ‘institutions matter’ as a starting point, the project sought to establish how institutions matter and to […]
