Dear reader(s) –

Sorry about the lack of recent updates! I wear several hats (which is literally not a bad idea, living in Chicago), although I shouldn’t make excuses. Here’s hoping I get back on track with the posts.

Some recent reads that I would recommend:

  1. New York Times columnist teaches me a thing or two about prospect research (via PRSPCT-L)
  2. America’s 50 richest zip codes (via Alex)
  3. The Freakonomics guys tackle philanthropy
  4. Very interesting read on the “rise of geezer capitalism in modern Britain” (via The Browser)
  5. This 16-year-old might be quite wealthy some day

Charitable receipts in China for the period of June to August 2011 was 87 percent lower than the period of March to May 2011. This is bad but not entirely surprising, given the recent scandals involving China’s embattled philanthropic sector.

For more, visit the Chinese or English sources of this story, or see my earlier post about one of the abovementioned scandals.

Why not? TMZ founder Harvey Levin is a fellow UChicago alum, after all. Solidarity, right?

  1. David Ellison (son of Larry Ellison) got married, and this happened
  2. Another son of a billionaire was generous to Zac Efron
  3. John Wayne auction nets over $5 million (via TMZ)

 

  1. South Korea’s booming luxury market
  2. Another controversy regarding philanthropy in China
  3. A very important speech about social media in the U.S.
  4. Information visualization vs. statistical graphics, the “debate”
