IAS­ Understanding the Global Community 2/15 IAS last time:kony 2012/race/humanitarianism/racism today: "charitable industrial complex"?/philanthropy and power -Kony 2012 campaign: how it depicted the situation in Africa in white man savior light -trying to raise awareness for issues involving people other than ourselves should be done so taht it doesn't become a colonial or post colonial solution that could complicate the problem further. -supporting local eforts to solve the problem instead of asssuming they are helpless victims -in the video it was only the narrator and not the voices of the people going through those hardships -Main points raised by Buffet? angry at the industrial complex because of their search for profit when doing philathropic projects. What is in it for us? -Main points raised in Buchanan's reply? best way for these places to do good is through philanthropic organizations; make them more efficient so the money goes where it is needed; eliminate extraneous costs. -Do you agree with either, both, or neither and why? I agree with both because I think that many comapanies give to charity only when they are guaranteed a return on their investment but I also think that philanthropic organizations do good in the world however they need to be more efficient in getting all the money to whoever is reveiving it. -other points: charitiy is an industry/business rather than a nonprofit organization, all businesses exist for themselves; heavy focus on returning investments, self perpetuation, administrative bloat -Self interested motives: conscience laundering -philanthropic colonialism: ignorant of the context of the situation; legitimizes/expands power of philanthropists -Buchanan: no solutions from Buffet; dont throw the baby out w/ bath water, relative or absolute growth? -people use philanthropy more as a business -Philanthropy: cause or effect of inequality? -solution to or perpetuator of inequality? 2/17 Last time: humanitarianism, philanthropy, and power -Today: inequality and citizenship -Do we need to reduce social inequality? If so how do we do this? -Local level: community based approaches specific to local needs -Some people expect to do nothing and get the benefits. -Some nordic countries have almost no inequality due to socialist type systems. -Larger countries don't use this b/c of capitalist systems and larger/more diverse populations. -Massive taxes and redistribution as benefits is appealing to many people aka socialism. -Citizenship -Regulatory measures -Interest groups/advocacy groups = collective actions -Public opinion factor -Systemic change -Possible radical factor 2/22 IAS Professor changeover -History repeats itself -History is essential to understanding something -Certain moments in time are turning points. -Zero sum game -Is history a roadmap of progress? - 2/24 IAS Income diparity was relatively similar in the year 1500 but in 2003 income disparity is very dissimilar with western europe at $19,912 and africa at $6,516. -Colonialism: subterfuge/local leaders, external influence (direct), removing native population, resource extraction, cultural control, assimilation, settlers, trade, competition between global powers, -Kinds: settler/non-settler,early colonialism - "god, gold, and glory". -competition between countries and more specifically monarchs -less religious fervor by the 19th century -european powers scramble to claim teritory in africa. -By 1900 Africa is divied up between Britain, France, German, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Boer, Turkey. -Mercantilism is falling out of favor and capitalism is on the rise.
