'Tis the Season...
AIRED:
Who's Giving? with Arthur C. Brooks.A charity divide runs through America: three-quarters of Americans contribute their time and money to various causes, while the rest of the population does not, according to Arthur C. Brooks, a leading scholar on economics and public policy. Brooks' research identifies the factors driving American charity, including strong families, church attendance, and the belief that social ills are best addressed by individuals rather than government. Brooks' findings have significant implications for policy debates on pressing issues like welfare reform, urban policy, the estate tax, education, and church/state questions. Charity matters, says Brooks, not only to individual donors and recipients who benefit directly, but also to the prosperity and self-government of America as a whole.Arthur C. Brooks has authored numerous articles and books related to charity and civic life. He is professor of public administration at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal.moreless
