Charity vs. Enterprise with Robert Sirico of PovertyCures.org




Acton Institute is a big voice in the conversation that happens at the intersection of Work and Worship. If you haven't already, check out their website, povertycure.org. Love the site, how they lay out the videos and love a lot of the language of the mission.

It is time to move:

  • From aid to enterprise
  • From poverty alleviation to wealth creation
  • From paternalism to partnerships
  • From handouts to investments
  • From seeing the poor as consumers or burdens to seeing them as creators
  • From viewing the poor as recipients of charity to acknowledging them as agents of change with dignity, capacity, and creativity.
  • From viewing people and economies as experiments to pursuing solidarity with the poor
  • From encouraging dependency to integrating the poor into networks of productivity and exchange
  • From subsidies and protectionism to open trade and competition
  • From seeing the global economy as a fixed pie to understanding that human enterprise can grow economies
The President of Rwanda, Peter Greer of HOPE International and many others are on there with some short video clips. I think Robert Sirico's video is a great message on "charity vs. enterprise".
