hosted by Ed Sutkowski—features
half-hour conversations of thoughtful dialogue with ordinary individuals who
have achieved extraordinary measures of success in the arts, business,
communications, education, science and sports.
"Thus, the task is
not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what
nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees."

Phil defined Phil and described his quantative approach to qualitative issues, i.e., how a social service provider analyzes productivity and benefits conferred. He expressed his views as to the current status of not-for-profits, compared and contrasted for-profits and not-for-profits. Phil's special focus related to the role of Social Impact Bonds - suggested in a recent issue of The Economist and in more detail by Jeffrey B. Libeman, a Harvard professor in his February 2011 paper issued by the Center for American Progress. The approach: cause not-for-profits to emulate the role of the for-profit, i.e., "skin in the game" in the form of bonds issued by a tax-exempt organization.
