This #GivingTuesday, an awareness is rising.

We don't just need more giving. We need less ruthless taking.

We don't just need the rich to do good. We need them to do less harm.

We don't just need the powerful donating. We need them stepping off backs. nytimes.com/2018/08/24/opi…
As recently as the last #GivingTuesday, the conversation we had about giving was very different. In this moment of the #techlash, phony billionaire populism, and existential threats to democracy, there is a spreading recognition that giving back is not going to save us.
"Philanthropy is commendable," the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary."

That is the mindset we should bring to #GivingTuesday.

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖
