Philanthropy: the art of putting wealth to work for the common good

Johanna Palmberg and Pontus Braunerhjelm, both Research Directors at Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum, contributed to HistPhil‘s forum on philanthropy in Sweden with an article on a new social contract. The two authors describe shifting intellectual currents in Sweden which are making it increasingly favorable for philanthropy and conclude by suggesting ways for philanthropic giving to play an increasingly greater role in European societies such as Sweden.
