Does charity work?

Sarah Best

7th February 2020

This video looks at the power of billionaires and their ability to make charitable donations to organisations of their choice.

Many wealthy people such as Michael Bloomberg make significant charitable contributions that help benefit different organisations such as homelessness. However, questions are raised about whether the wealthy have too much control and say over where the money goes and there are concerns about what they want in return.

This video could be used for Culture and Identity (production, consumption and globalisation) as well as a wider discussion of social class.
