Show 1523 Private Philanthropy- The Subject Your History Textbook Left Out

 From the Tom Woods Show

Episode 670  Private Philanthropy: The Subject Your History Textbook Left Out

The American people give vastly more in philanthropic donations on a percentage basis than anyone in the world. This is the best-kept secret in American textbooks. Any schoolboy would have the impression that government intervention is required in order to get things done — after all, who else is going to do it? The suppressed history of American philanthropy is fascinating and compelling, and our expert guest takes us through this important part of American history and culture.
