Описание: An insider's groundbreaking investigation of how the global elite's efforts to "change the world" preserve the status quo and obscure their role in causing the problems they later seek to solve.

Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can--except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward "thought leaders" who redefine "change" in winner-friendly ways; and how they constantly seek to do more good, but never less harm. We hear the limousine confessions of a celebrated foundation boss; witness an American president hem and haw about his plutocratic benefactors; and attend a cruise-ship conference where entrepreneurs celebrate their own self-interested magnanimity.

Giridharadas asks hard questions: Why, for example, should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions it erodes by lobbying and dodging taxes? He also points toward an answer: Rather than rely on scraps from the winners, we must take on the grueling democratic work of building more robust, egalitarian institutions and truly changing the world. A call to action for elites and everyday citizens alike.

Описание:

Reversing his parents' immigrant path, a young American-born writer returns to India and discovers an old country making itself new

Anand Giridharadas sensed something was afoot as his plane from America prepared to land in Bombay. An elderly passenger looked at him and said, "We're all trying to go that way," pointing to the rear. "You, you're going this way?"

Giridharadas was returning to the land of his ancestors, amid an unlikely economic boom. But he was interested less in its gold rush than in its cultural upheaval, as a new generation has sought to reconcile old traditions and customs with new ambitions and dreams.

In "India Calling," Giridharadas brings to life the people and the dilemmas of India today, through the prism of his émigré family history and his childhood memories of India. He introduces us to entrepreneurs, radicals, industrialists, and religious seekers, but, most of all, to Indian families. He shows how parents and children, husbands and wives, cousins and siblings are reinventing relationships, bending the meaning of Indianness, and enduring the pangs of the old birthing the new.

Through their stories, and his own, he paints an intimate portrait of a country becoming modern while striving to remain itself.

America is a broken machine - let me tell you why

Note to Readers: This is a fan-based summary and analysis companion book for Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World by Anand Giridharadas. This text is meant to enhance your original reading experience, not supplement it. You are strongly encouraged to purchase the originla book here: https: //amzn.to/2R6sCrb

Winners Take All takes aim at the world of philanthropy, marketing, and the elite charade of changing the world. These are large targets tackled with precision. The book looks at issues on a macro level by evaluating their global impact and systemic roots, and also on the micro level by tracking a number of men and women directly involved in both the problems and solutions facing the United States and the broader world.

The darker side of philanthropy is explored and evaluated. People with power are not likely to change the world to a significant degree, because it would threaten their own power. The people who have the power to cause positive change in the world, stand to gain the least from genuine positive change and have the most to lose as a result.

Often times the rich and powerful use donations and the giving-back of their money/resources as a sort of get out of jail free card. The act of giving away their money stops critics from inquiring how they amassed their fortunes in the first place. Giving back often comes at the expense of considerably more harm being caused to generate the money that is then given back.

Some of the fundamental questions that Winners Take All attempts to answer are: Is it possible to do good while doing well? Can the people with the power to change the world truly to so for the benefit of broader society, and if the answer is yes, then why hasn't any significant positive change been detected since the 1980s amongst those not in the top 1%? Why has widespread inequality continued to grow?

In this detailed summary and analysis of Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World by Anand Giridharadas, you'll learn all about the widespread inequality in America. This summary touches on engaging topics like:

  • Why the most influential people don't want societal change
  • Modern day capitalism has no worthy opponent to stand against, find out why
  • The mind blowing studies from the Economic Policy Institution

About the Original Book: In Winners Take All, Anand Giridharadas bursts the great myth that large corporations are the key drivers of social change and poverty reduction. He provides critical evidence that shows just how self-serving these large donations are, highlighting the behind-the-scenes machinations that keep the system skewed in favor of the wealthy. Giridharadas pulls no punches as he exposes the inner workings of what he calls MarketWorld, a reference to the philanthropic individuals and companies that make a killing off the misery of poor people. If you have ever wondered why poverty and inequality are so pervasive in the modern world, this book will reveal the truth.
