With more people and businesses than ever wanting to contribute in a positive way to the world, it seems now’s the time to be inventing real, genuine models for social change. Models that are equally as competitive as the free-market enables, that serve society as equally as the ideal government-investment model should and that generate genuine social change results – the very thing today’s best philanthropists are searching high and low to find.

This Social Edge article suggests that a hybrid between two or more models (free-market, government investment and philanthropy) may be the best way to go.  And why not?  With so many issues needing to be addressed, it makes sense that every stakeholder is in the mix – contributing where they can and gunning for the same social change goal.
