Reviews - What do customers think about Selling Social Change (Without Selling Out): Earned Income Strategies for Nonprofits?
Useful information, but you have to work to find it. Sep 20, 2002
Author Robinson, who benignly describes himself as an "anti-capitalist," provides some useful information and guidelines for unsophisticated non-profit agencies contemplating social entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, he cloaks the good stuff with so much undisguised leftist, liberal activist commentary, he spoils it for those of us who tend to more moderate or conservative views about the merits of capitalism (historically the only successfully sustainable economic model). Still, most non-profits will find practical food for thought, even if they have to "hold their nose" while swallowing it.
