The not-for-profit world – speaking tour

How On EarthDonnie Maclurcan is a man with a fascinating idea – that not-for-profit business models are inherently more competitive than for-profit businesses, and will be at the heart of the global economy by 2050. And in the process, that global economy will become more sustainable, and more fair.

It’s a relatively new idea, and Donnie’s book How on Earth, co-authored with Postgrowth Institute colleague Jen Hinton, should give us a good introduction. But if you want to hear more about it in person, Donnie’s in Britain over the next few days on a speaking tour.

  1. Happily, competition will show if he is correct. Provided of course people like the Social Economy Alliance aren’t allowed to rig the playing field.
